Today we have a parting gift to Fran (AKA the Angry Lurker). Postie has a nickname for Fran of the "Kung fu Panda". Ray also has a nickname for him and Fran for Ray. And neither of them are "Golden drop of sunshine!". They are of course FULL of swearing and extracting the urine! So with no further ado here is Ping the Panda by "Bombshell miniatures!" A very nice if small sculpt of the big guy. I hasten to add that this is not Kung fu Panda as Bombshell call him Ping and any similarity between the two are purely coincidental.
As you can see from the second picture Nothing like him despite my painting trying to make them twins.
So I shoved the figure in the post and sent it to "Postie, somewhere in Gravesend" And that should be enough of an address for the Royal mail to have no idea. Maybe some random "postie" will benefit from this who can say.
Back in the painting challenge I have had a little upset. I spent2 days working on some (22) Sci Fi vehicles and when I looked at them this morning in the light I saw that I just could not be happy with them. So I have had to put them away for now, probably till next year as I sulk and brood about them. A word to the wise NEVER try to use an ORANGE wash on figures after 10pm. They really did look shite in the morning!
So here are a couple more shots of "Ping the panda" to be getting on with.
And now the 15mm Sci Fi is scrapped I will start some 28mm ACW in stead. The first 12 are primed and with luck I shall have them done by Tuesday which is my next scheduled challenge day post.
Thanks for looking. I shall start the ACW figures later this morning once the Primer is nice and dry!.
Hope you are having a good day. All the best Clint.
