Feeling a bit fenced in - nearing the 5 metre mark

Almost at the 5 metre mark. 16 lengths of 20cm (including one with a 5cm corner) which is good for 3.25 metres of length, and 9x 10cm corners, 2x 20cm corners and 2x 10cm straights makes another 1.50 metres for a grand total of 4.75 metres of fence sofar.

More to come.

Feeling a bit fenced in - 2 more metres of fence basically ready for basing.

What it says on the tin, 2 more meters ready for basing up.

Made 3 with double steps for variety sake. Some are a bit warped sadly, but that's ok, most aren't and they will work fine either way.

Next up should be more corners and a few short bits with small acces doors.

Paints Piers uses to paint his British Airborne

As he keeps forgetting what he uses and asks me, oh, every couple of months...... :)

A sad day - a deluge of Spam :(

Sorry guys,

I've just had to put the comment section on Moderated. I've been spammed to death today with over 50 spam messages sofar and I've reported them all but for now, I'm moderating every comment people make just to be sure. So it's a bit of a hassle now, sorry about that.

Special delivery! (the prelude)

Just got an email that my birthday present for this year is ready to be shipped to my location. If I would not be so tired I'd be over the moon AND crying at the same time.....but in light of what Royal Mail did to my previous Wikkywok parcel I'm holding my breath till it actually arrives.

But the pictures....oh my, they are so pretty....... It has cost me an arm and a leg but it is so worth it. 3 part Normandy church for 20mm, with extra seperate church tower top if I want the church to be in England, church can be split in half for use as a chapel or small church, and enough walls to cover quite a bit of area, plus a gate, damaged sections and a nice entry.

I'll add graves and trees etc myself at a later point. I've got quite the vilage now, time to get working on the little details.

Si Tyler's IRIAF colours

Again, I will keep up posting other peoples work from time to time to save it for future reference. This time it is for the colours used by Si Tyler for his Iran-Iraq Iranian Air Force.

(Edit: Tbh I don't think all of these colours exist anymore, but it is a handy reference none the less)
(Edit2: You can't ask Tyler for the decals btw, he had a HDD crash and lost everything. Yes, everything. The only ones you can get are the IRIAF roundels from Dom's Decals)

My first IRIAF Aircraft for the game. The Iranian roundels are from Dom all other decals are homemade. F-5 and F-4E to follow.

In terms of paint for these:

  • Vallejo Dark Sand over a white undercoat
  • GW Calthan Brown
  • Vallejo US Dark Green
  • GW Devlan Mud Wash
  • Vallejo Silver Grey undersides
  • Varnish
  • Decals
  • Varnish
  • Dullcote

It's a sign!

Decided to take it easy tonight and edit a few billboard for various locations. Feel free to use them, just copy paste and put them in a Word doc, so you can scale them to the desired size for your table.

Feeling a bit fenced in - 3 metres of WIP

As I didn't have much time tonight, I went for the do just one or 2 things and in bulk. So, 15 strips of cardboard and 15 20cm cut down BBQ matches later.....

Yes, rather.......unimpressive.

When done, it is 3 metres of metal sheeting fence, so there. Tomorrow the rest of the framework will be done, again little time, and Friday I'll base them all up and start cutting corners again.

And in other news, guess what I found in a 2nd hand store in thge next village.
Weirdest thing is that I found the first column in a DIFFERENT store then where I went today......and I still don't know what they are! Also a very handy Thingamajig that will come in handy. All of this for the princely sum of 30 cents for the lot.

Now, off to bed, internship again tomorrow and a review by my mentor and my jobcoach. I hope I'm doing well. I haven't FUBARed my way around or burned the building down or anything....yet, so I have that going for me :D.

Feeling a bit fenced in - cutting corners

After a full day of internship I'm a bit beat, so not that much today.

1 90 degree inner corner, 1 90 degree outer corner and 1 very angled 30 degree corner just to see if I could make one without throwing it in the bin in frustration. Well, it worked. Well, apart from my shitty math then, one of the legs is 1 cm too short. Ah well.....

+29 cm.

194 cm's in total. Not too bad for a couple of evenings work. I'll do some more straights tomorrow and a backdoor I think. Maybe an extra corner.
