Picking up those brushes again.

Hi and welcome to the occasional mutterings of Dave Doc, a military modeller and some time gamer. Gaming and model making has given me a real education, History & Geography(obvious really), Artistry, Politics, Economics, Logistics, Project Management -you try building miniature armies without the last 3.

I will use the blog to record my creations & the odd occasion I actually do some gaming.

I have always been inspired by the aesthetic side of gaming. Playing on well constructed terrain using excellently painted units is always a joy.

Airpower!

A little diversion from normal here. 15mm WW2 Luftwaffe & Red Airforce. These are for Gerry over at the his "Situation Room" project. A truly tremendous commitment to his hobby. 400 square feet of playing surface, 1000's of trees, 100's of buildings , and 1000's and 1000's of figures. All good fun & great to see the progress he is making expanding the collections.

So it has been out with the airbrush to do this little lot. So here is a little aircraft recognition test for you - ok I have named them for you. Models were 15mm by Command Decision.

 Me109
 Fw190
 Me109
 Me110
 Ju87D

 Mig 3
 Polikarpov I-153
 Polilarpov I-16
 La5
 Yak 9
 LaGG3
 Pe2
  Il2

Took a deal of work , and the waterslide transfers took a fair bit of time, but very happy with the end results. Looking forward to seeing the results of the aerial battles at the Situation Room

Work in hand

The RULES!

No more than 3 things on the PAINTING table at once. Nothing new added until something is finished.

PREPARATION work is done when I don't fancy detail painting. Cleaning up, converting, undercoating etc.

PLANNING is expressions of interest or things that have inspired me to be created with no definite timescale as yet.


On the PAINTING TABLE
10mm ACW, 28mm Stradiots

On the PREPATION table.
ACW Terrain, Egyptian and Sudanese troops for the Sudan

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
Pulp Alley
