In the meantime, while digging in the cupboard under the eaves I came across a stack of boxes of Armourfast kits that my friend Ron bought in our BKC phase several years ago. We don't use many vehicles, or figures, these days and Ron has been investing in die cast and pre assembled models these days so there is little call for plastic kits of SU tank destroyers or T34/76's and there they sit. But I found a box of motorcycles and decided to have a go.
|Rough and Ready, hasty job on Armourfast 1/72 figures.|
Ron will base them once I hand them over.
If I had but one word for this set "crappy" would be it! Never mind the figures, the very soft plastic was loaded with flash which even a brand new blade would not cut without fraying and despite the PSR report that they took glue well, I had trouble getting the arms to go on and stay.
The plan was to do all 3 but after finally finding the lost arm for the 4th time, I just did one. Then, since the detail was so vague, I trimmed the helmet on a 2nd one and did it in green and khaki hoping to pass it off as in Russian service to let me mark at least one unit as what Memoir calls elite infantry who may move 2 and still attack in those advance guard games. (Ron almost always lets me play the allies).
Speaking of which, I had a peek at stats esp where people are connecting from and see that Russia and the Ukraine are now amongst the top 10 in terms of page visits. I also see a few visits from China.
Welcome to you all! And to all others from around the world, Marvelous thing, the internet.
I am afraid I don't speak any languages but English, (and some very rusty Quebecois French and less Gaelic) or read any of the scripts (might learn a little bit of Chinese if my sister-in-law moves closer) but please do not let that stop you from leaving a comment to say hi or talk a bit about your hobby.
Either let the computer do its best to translate or give it your best shot in English. Don't worry about being perfect or even "correct", I am easy to get along with, if I don't understand, I'll ask or if I appear to misunderstand I do not mind being corrected.
OK, based on hints, I think I'm off to Tunisia tomorrow to command some Yanks in a sticky situation, 1/72 on Hexon terrain using modified Memoir. Will I remember to take pictures or get caught up in the game again?
