This old chestnut still rolls on, the crew are nearly completed now, will get them off the workbench this week, then switch my attention to the car itself. Windows to be added, another coat of paint, followed by weathering, and a few well placed FAI/CNTs plastered over it.
Next, a selection of rather fine automobiles, all commandeered by the local committee.
The first two cars, will have their roofs taken off, and be filled with an assortment of dubious Milicianos, the car furtherist away from the camera, well I hope to open up one of the doors, and have a figure standing next to it..
and then we have the ubiquitous Autobus, my first attempt at a more "period" front end, has gone a bit "Pete Tong", so version two is underway. The idea being, that I will make one master, and then cast myself some copies in resin. I have 4 of the bus models to convert, plus this one, so I have a decent size fleet. Bit unique this, as no one produces a decent period bus model, that can be filled with a selection of dodgy passengers, yes I am going to bung people inside,and a roof rack on the top.
So vehicles done, Vicars next, well priests actually
Take two Perry Miniatures Carlist priests, and two Empress/Anglian SCW heads, rip off the Perry heads, replace with the SCW heads,stick on a rifle, add some paint, and "hey presto" your very own in period god botherers. all ready to inspire the believers against the Filthy Red Scum,
"Viva El Christo Rey"
and last of all, Other Such Nonsense
I made a purchase, I think it was at Partizan, an the company was called Warbases (possibly)
quite handy little gadgets, save all that individual figure shuffling, however, because I am an annoying old fart, who is never happy with things just the way they are, I have decided I don't like the edges!!
My solution? File em down to a nice rounded curve
There, thats so much nicer!!!
