    I found another couple of items to be finished. Some Medieval troops and some siege equipment.

    I have started the ram and a few other things are still in progress.

    Man I'll bet some keyboard manufacturer would pay you to advertise for them in that gear..... providing the keyboard lasted more
    than two minutes.

    These 1/72 scale siege engines and the like are cool cause they are usually quite cheap and look excellent with a few figures added.

    Still going with this one. Interesting all up. Still needs a lot of touching up to smooth
    things. This was also a test as it is all done with water based acrylics.

    The more I see my older efforts from the late seventies the less I like them.

    Most Allied stuff was painted green with black tyres and the stickers put on.
    Camo was used a fair bit on vehicles in the British army so it was time to finish
    these kits off a bit better. Mickey Mouse camo was used on a lot of equipment
    so I went with that for Italy onwards. Desert stuff had a bit more latitude.

    Also found some more unfinished knights and horses etc.

    Airfix 25lber kit with Mickey Mouse camo instead of plain green.

    AEC Matador truck and Matchbox Humber armoured car. The Matador has
    windows which were cut from the plastic tops off a shirt box.

    Medieval stuff. Lots of painting to go here.

    More Medieval stuff. Good value as far as painting goes because there is
    quite a lot of time involved.

    How long can a model last? This is a Fujimi Matilda - made in 1976.
    Poor paintwork and too much sand added later for gaming in the desert.
    The rivets on the side at the back look good because the paint has worn off
    from being picked up.

    Soviet Zis gun. Important for gaming and this is part of an Italeri set with figures.
    Haven't done the figures yet.

    Most of the bike is made for the 1/35th despatch rider set. Still not sure on the
    uniform colour. Tried a bit of grey and then some green. Probably the green as
    the gear worn was anything from grey through green to brown. This is a Zvezda
    kit and the parts for the bike are really well done. No flash and excellent fit right
    down to the frame and engine. Very pleasing to build.

    Love all of the stuff! I’m particularly fond of the Humber, and the Matador is cool as hell, too! Interestingly, I’ve always wanted to do a motorcycle, so I’m very interested in that build.
    If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning
