I have completed some more of my Fallschirmjagers, this time quite a few of them have the Lufftwaffe Blue coats on. I've done a bit of chopping and changing again, taking a FJ head, the one with goggles on his helmet, and sticking it on a Revell German body using pin & glue method. I have also chopped quite a bit off a kneeling bloke with binoculars and stuck him in a shallow foxhole- the foxhole is a metal one out of a Command Decision 15mm FJ bag- he just fits in there.
Work has begun on the Pegasus SS set #2, however I am finding having to glue that soft sort of plastic a bit of a drag. The figures are nicely animated but fiddly- I should have resisted and picked up the Caesar Germans instead. I don't think I can bring myself to do peadot on them all, maybe spring Oak Leaf?
I have further increased my stocks of Vallejo paints with another order to Maelstrom Games, and am trialing the Vallejo Matt Varnish on some figures. I also placed a small order with Grubby Tanks for some splendid looking metal British to supplement my plastics- there's even a stretcher bearer team.
As always your comments & questions are welcome. Oh yeah, and thanks to all who have visited and bumped the blog over the 10,000 mark :) Enjoy.
