In other words the painting Mojo is coming back. Yes I know it's very dangerous. Very dangerous indeed. So I have started work on a Grubby Tanks LRDG Chevrolet. Code (LRDG 04) if you really want to look it up. And that tells you one of the vehicles I bought at SELWG show.
As you can see it comprises 4 wheels a driver, a gunner with Vickers K machine gun and a gunner with a 0.5 Browning. In addition it comes with 2 extra Vickers K machine guns. There are no instructions but I could work out where most things went.
I did decide that the extra Vickers were superfluous to my particular needs and that a 0.5 Browning would be sufficient. So I filled any of the small air bubbles and added green-stuff to make the rear passenger more enclosed. The hardest part was fixing the radiator but even that was not insurmountable and once I got better at using the green stuff piece of cake.
Then a quick coat of grey primer. This gives me a good place to start painting. Some of the base colours are on now. But it's going to take a while as there really is a LOT of stowage that you don't notice until you start painting and then you have to work out exactly what it is that you are painting. (Boxes, Tarpaulins, blankets, wheels, packs helmets etc.) So I am sorting out the bits and bobs and slowly getting it all covered in paint. I's going to take some time so expect to see it finished next week some-time.
That's my update for today as I have a new set of rules I am working through. Thanks for looking and with luck something finished soon.
Take care and get the brushes wet. All the best Clint
