Entry for April 24, 2007

3 stands more done - I have put on sticks, primed and painted the uniforms on the last of my infantry! I just need to paint the leather, canvas and guns, touch-ups, and then it's off to the washes and bases and DONE! I have laid out the artillery (figures, bases, etc.) and my heavy mortars so I can file and attach to sticks. I also removed the floats from my Zero float plane (1/144th scale by Kaiyodo) to make it as a objective marker. The floats came off easily and I took a chance and sawed open the canopy to remove the pilot figure. I believe I will have to leave the wings intact as the feel solid and breaking one off (as could happen in a crash) it wouldn't look good. I can either put the cut canopy piece off to one side or just leave it off. It's not wide enough to put on as if the canopy was opened. Should look good when I'm done. I need another objective maker for my Japanese...may be a destroyed Sherman??? And the surrendering British!

The Blacktree LOTR Fellowship figures look great and I am very happy with the paint jobs. I'll take photos when finished. Then it's on to the Games Workshop Fellowship figures!!!
One thing I need to remember is to get back on to the figures I'm paint up to have Tim sell. After the Japanese, I believe it's a 28mm project. I want to paint large figures again, even tho I still need to finish my Colonial 15mm stuff. That should be easy....
