  1. I think figure sculptors sometimes blend different types of putty to get the best of both, so a blend of milliput and magic sculp , or green stuff and milliput , might work for the Zim?
  2. Thank you, but credit really goes to the sculptors, I just stick em together and colour them in.
  3. The next delivery of figures arrived today, including the intended driver for the second Renault. With hindsight, I should perhaps have fitted him to the more closed up TSF, but the drivers doors on that are firmly glued so gun tank two it shall have to be.

  5. Not much progress as the workbench has reverted to a revision desk, but a wee photo just to prove I’m still here! Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  6. The header pic here gives an idea (and I think the tank in the phot is up on a ramp slightly!): Renault TSF This shot is a US Army Signal Corps photo so is presumably free of copyright, but will be removed on request. TSF.jpg large by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  7. “Tall” is a relative term, even the TSF isn’t that much taller than a man. These were really tiny tanks!
  8. So let’s get this mobile call box started. As this is the third FT on the production line, I’m starting to get the hang of them I think. I’ve compromised a bit on painting the drivers compartment as this one will be closed up apart from the visor. Although this TSF is a Meng kit, the boxy body is a resin part, but it’s decent enough and easy to clean up.

  9. Oh, and I’ve started the third FT - the TSF - telegraphie sans fil - wireless to you and me. The 1918 equivalent of a mobile phone.
  10. Ok, so what have we done today? Commander’s seat strap (recycled food tray foil - Sainsbury’s quiche in this case ) in the kit etch brackets Turret by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Pause for contemplation Renault FT by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr And the main build of the first FT is done. Paint and tools still to add.

  11. One of the nicest bits of the Blast Models resin upgrades is the combined toolbox and Jack. This was applied to the second FT: Renault FT by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  12. The chance to spray base coats out in the sunshine means the first two FTs are really starting to take shape. Renault FT by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Renault FT by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  13. That’s certainly in the back of my mind. The chap with the can is one of the Bodi figures, the slightly exaggerated stance is because he’s designed to carry a jerrycan. His leather jerkin had to have a pocket carved off, and embroidery was removed from his cuffs, so that with a replacement head he looks like an AEF driver (perhaps, at least in my eyes).
  14. An essential trip (Mrs 06/24’s COVID jag) gave me a chance to do a little WWI memorial. On the night of 2 April 1916, one hundred and five years ago today, two Zeppelins, L14 and L22, attacked Edinburgh, dropping bombs across the city. One fell on the Castle Rock, another fell in the Grassmarket, landing among the onlookers gathered to see the spectacle. The bomb exploded outside the White Hart, which was severely damaged. In all 13 people were killed across Edinburgh and Leith, the youngest a baby, killed by a bomb at Bonnington. #RIP Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flic
  15. I do want to. How cool is that! Meanwhile, back on planet almost sensible more figures: Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr and more progress on the second FT Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
