I find myself getting interested in a return to a bit of larger scale modelling. This is something that the increased time afforded by the fruition of the retirement plan that is in place for next year should be possible. As such I am starting a “stash” stock up .
Well following my motto of “Go big or go home” I thought let’s lay in something to really push myself.
I have built model aircraft since I was 6 - which is nearly a half century ago..but never anything this size. I do remember seeing 1/24th Spitfires , Stukas etc as lad and promising to do one at some time . So I think this will do . Not sure when it start just yet , but it’s nice to have it there.
Also a few other larger scale things too , 1/48th P51 Mustang . And a 1/35th Chieftan . More of these to come as the fancy takes me.
I am clearing out the paint desk of some 15mm WW2 German stuff in advance of the usual winter painting challenge.
Pak43’s and 120mm mortars for the start of my FJ forces are nearly done ,along with an 80mm mortar platoon a PZ Grenadier platoon to finish . I aslso have a single King Tiger to fettle as well.
The winter materials stock up has been completed with a large order of MDF bases from Warbases , and the paint racks given a refresh of anything near running out . I have ordered more storage boxes and trays. The figures to kick off the “new project” have been ordered today .
It’s back to the painting season.
