    I totally get where you're coming from there, easier for me doing single figures I can chop and change quite easily. When I was predominantly making dioramas it was great, a full.mix of vehicles figure conversion, ground work and painting. I had to be strict with myself though and only have one dio on he go at any one time, which often led to rushing the end and cutting corners, but it was good fun.

    Hi Simon, Steve & Steve,
    Thank you for the continued support lads greatly appreciated.
    I've done a lot scrounging around for figures over the last two weeks to go with the XXX Corps project.
    I also want to do a piece on the 101st so also I have been looking for American airborne figures too. (Easy Company of course)
    I have about 10 US figures coming from Germany on top of the ones pictured.

    I have made a decision to start painting the first two projects before assembling the next one. So I have started on the first figure
    of the officer from the battle scene.
    cheers

    Love the paint job, the dennison looks good. I reckon you are single handedly keeping some model shops in business.

    Hi Simon, Malc, Steve & Nigel,
    Thank you, yes a lot to do but starting to get on with it now. I have been held back waiting for a new airbrush to arrive. Well it arrived and I have used it today.
    I have base coated the smocks and trousers on 12 Para's in the time it took me to hand paint 2.
    I really like my new Paasche Talon so easy to use and comes with 3 needle sizes 0.25, 0.38 and 0.5.
    Also purchased some Alpine and Hornet heads of Steve Kirtley for future projects.
    cheers

    Great step forward mate, it makes sense using the airbrush if you have a full production line going on. Also helps keeping some consistency in the colours used. Must have been hard work waiting for the brush with so.much you want to get on with though.
