    Keep at it Kev. I feel your pain, I still have 'Sail Away' sitting on the edge of my bench, alternatively mocking me and daring me to get on with it.. I'm happy enough with the basic colours and such, I'm just utterly stuck on finishing it, and as for Blond hair.....:woot:. Problem is, theres so many other models to build and paint. At least I dont have a 'shelf of shame'...
