But I took today to get back on track and to get some items finished and up for display and for your review.
The first is the T34/85 Med Tank Plt. of the 1st Bongolesian Armored. These are three T34/85s from Battlefront Minis.
They aren't bad pieces with the exception of the tracks didn't fit on the hull very well and have a "bent in" appearance that I didn't like. But there was nothing I could do about it. Colors used were Vallejo Uniform Green, black, burnt umber, and about four or five different browns and washes to get the weathered look.
So far so good...unless you were the driver of this thing!!!!
I painted the base a burnt umber color and then painted the inside of the fuel cell black...I've started work on the damage and I added some homemade PETROCO signs. So far it's a little over 50% complete. I've got to finish the damage and put the debris on the ground, etc....but so far I like what I have.
Don't let the stockholders see this!!!!
So that is about as far as I have for now.
Now onto something a little disturbing about my fictional country.
Last week I was cruising Google when I entered Bongolesia to see what would come up. Among my normal entries, etc...Suddenly, I found another link. I clicked on it, and went to an Energy Investment Site for 2007. Bongolesia General Information, (on this BLOG!!!) was listed as a forum entry under "Western Refining!"
Oh lord...someone thinks it's real!
I put a post on TMP telling folks about it, and reminding them that it isn't real.
Funny but scary at the same time.
Okay folks thats it for now. Let me know what you think of my work, and next week I hope to have finished the truck and maybe even post the first part of building the QRF Mi-24 HIND helicopter!
Comments are appreciated...
