  1. Retirement - what the hell do you do with your days?

    Retirement Highly recommend it,the only thing was my inbuilt clock took sometime to wind down,and volunteering I was doing so much I had no time for myself,until the big C kicked in then I really had to slow down,9 ops and I'm still above ground,just not able to do the things I once did with ease,modelling is the best past time occupies your mind and do not need any great strength to do it(maybe sometimes mental strength when you glue things to your fingers) I read the worry of having to much time with the wife,well I am the opposite my wife has her hobby,but we both go to the movies the pub and outings together,she is my best friend so I'm very lucky on that side of things,anyway that's my 2 Bobs worth so enjoy enjoy,you just don't know whats round the corner(roses or a run away Lorry)Cheers.

    Nice build in this small scale and a great presentation with the Dio Cheers.
  6. Zvezda 1/72 French Dragoons

    Yes thanks Fred I remember you telling me about the wash,one of the figures had nice mouth detail and after the wash it came up fine almost looked like he had a Moe,a lot of the detail has been lost with the camera,my wife has a tablet that takes very good pics,will try and take some better ones,I must have went over these figures a dozen times and I always found some little thing I missed and when I dug out the big gun a powerful magnifier I have boy did I see another would of miniatures even found a dozen parts I lost on the floor months ago HaHa,you guys who do this scale all the time must have the attention of a brain surgeon,I still have the artillery figures to do,that's a worry,but must say they have been fun,and they look great on the shelf with my 1/35 scale figures and Armour,not sure if I'm hooked but have seen some nice ones in Medieval Knights that look good,Cheers and thanks for your help and comments.Have added some new pic,to try and get some detail visible,I also put another wash over their faces,it is as dark as I really would like to go,looks like they have had a holiday in Spain or down here in sunny Australia Cheers.
  7. Well here is part of my project finished and boy was it hard my hat goes off to you guys that do this all the time,I've seen some on line painted by the 100's,I would need another life time to finish that many,the figures were painted with acrylics and finished with a mat varnish,I'm sorry the pics are not to clear I was pushing my little snap camera to it's limit,would look a little better if the camera was better,Thanks and hope you enjoy.
