Today I got two parcels. One was a set of printed figures for fantasy football games like Blood Bowl. First of all Greebo Games was pretty fast to send it, and then it got stopped by Swedish customs. I paid the fees yesterday and got the parcel today, which was surprisingly fast. Here’s some pics of the nice box and the contents.
The other parcel was a kit that I bought from the Swedish auction site Tradera.
This is the 4th bike in this scale that I have. Hopefully I’ll find time to build them as well.
After the black primer was done, I did a zenithal primer, starting with grey and then white. I decided to try my new Speed paints, at least to start with. I used a rather dark brown on the top branches and then thinned it out somewhat on a few other areas. My thought is that the branches that have leaves should look more healthy than the rest of the tree.
Using yellowish and grey colours I painted the bark in different colours, trying to make it look kinda old. I also painted some of the details like the face mask.
Added a few more details and it’s almost done. Just need to find the little squirrel that belongs to the kit and paint it as well.
Will do some touching up and then I think I’ll considering it finished.
I ordered this little kit as I found one on an auction site, far cheaper than the one in my local toy and hobby shop.
My intention is to build it in a Nordic themed group build, and build it as the one sitting on a post in Halmstad, from their former air wing. I just need to find a way to get the proper decals printed.
