Painting Tray (Cupboard Review)

What's in teh cupboard before Xmas to do?

The AFV collection (see above):
  • 1/72 Italeri/Esci Hetzer (to make up a Command Decision ersatz panzerjaeger late-war company of three)
  • 1/72 (notorious as big in scale) Skytrex 1944 Bren Carrier (to be the universal helper to my Paltoon 20 British PBI)

The "half completed" aeroplane collection (see above):
  • 1/72 Westland Whirlwind (pain job and decals required)
  • 1/72 De Haviland Mosquito (bomb and rocket racks to add, paint and decals required)
Repair jobs (see above):
  • 1/48 Spitfire Vb (bits dropped off that need replacing)
  • 1/72 Do 17 E/F (bits dropped off and upgrade to paint job)
Terrain Projects (see above):
  • The "real water" effect, see interesting scenery box  

Kits lurking in other corners of the house (see above):
  • 1/700 Fujimi HMS Hood
  • Revell snap-together Millennium Falcon
Can the above be done before 2013 turns into 2014?
(On teh other hand need they all be?)

Total awesome package of projects Geordie.

A Dieppe game would be good to get the Whirlwind on the table.

Eclectic is another way to describe the collection Paul.

The Battle of the Denmark Strait beckons at sometime in the future Paul, all that is missing is the main protagonist KM Bismarck and potentially an upgrade to the KM Prinz Eugen (Airfix of better still Fujimi waterline). Probably using Fletcher Pratt rules on my lawn

Start Wars is just Star Wars and brings the big kid out in me ;)

As for the Hetzer it is something I have wanted to do for a while for a late-war Eastern Front scenario, putting them up against JSII's and T34/85's as per a story I once read .. looking a tad pale/white if you end up playing German ;)

The planes, darn, they take so long for me to make and never look anything without the decals (the bit I seem to take forever to do)

Glad you liked ;)
