Things are changing though and I have started three projects that I shall update over the next few weeks.
First up is a present for my brothers upcoming birthday. He and I are both of an age that the original Star Wars movies will always be a highlight of our childhood.
So as something a bit different and meaningful I am building the ertl falcon kit and installing some basic lighting.
I had this kit as a child, but this kit has been lying around for ten years after I got it from a supermarket for £10.
Here is the progress so far, some parts built and some undercoat.
Next up is for my nephew. With his father being so keen on the franchise he too will receive a fully painted present. This time though something a little more suited to a youngster and there heavy handedness.
It's the jabbas palace play set.
And finally, as I haven't been committed to the hobby for over a year, the hobby pot is overflowing with funds. I treated myself to the splendid range from studio miniatures that are very similar to a famous comedy movie.
These will actually become a force for the dragon rampant rules or some whimsical games of songs of blades and heroes.
Thank you for looking.
