Surgery and AFV's


I had my Septo-rhinoplasty to fix my smashed up nose last Friday and I thought I was going to have so much spare time to paint figures. Well today has been the first day I have been able to as the rest of the time I have felt terrible due to swelling, sleeping and the drug mix I have to take. I have a nose cast on which really is irritating, however the silver lining is that it comes off in 2 hours as well as the stitches (eek !)

I started playing around with my 1/72 Modern US vehicles and attempting my first ever painting of NATO camouflage. The pics below are of the base coats so other coat plus weathering\touch-ups etc etc but I don't mind them. I used Vallejo German Grey for my NATO black but I might give it a touch up with  a darker shade. (Models are Trumpeter 1/72 Stryker and LAV)

And I did something really stupid this week while resting in bed. I watched Zulu, Gettysburg and the four feathers and now a box has been hauled from the garage containing said 6mm\15mm figures.

At least the rhino-thing-otomy is now behind you and we can hope it's all uphill (in terms of view point) from here. I like those NATO vehicles already. Dare I ask about the overall project in mind?

Glad to hear you are all patched up Paul!

Thanks Ion and Rodger.
Ion, My project ( A very loose label) is based around the US helping out some ex USSR state after it is invaded by Russia (or extremists). Simply 1/75 skirmish really.
