Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge - Opening Gambit
This entry was posted on January 5, 2021.
For my first foray into this year's challenge, I decided to start with some of my late-war British recce vehicles, in 1/56. These were relatively straightforward to paint on the whole, but - as Mrs King sagely pointed out - "Isn't it counter-productive to paint all that detail only to then cover it all up again with mud and muck?!" Wise words; softly spoken.
In this first tranche, for which I'm claiming 100pts, please find below the following (in order):
- Daimler Armoured Car (Inns of Court),
- Humber Armoured Car Mk IV (Inns of Court - I may in future attempt the 'sawn-off' version!),
- Humber Scout Car (from 3RTR), and
- two Recce Jeeps from my Airborne forces. These were easier to paint, but the annoying para smocks more than made up for that!
