My Photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Russian Artillery (Part 6)

Salve my friends!

Yesterday it was a busy busy day for me (in terms of modelling and painting). I finished working on time, so when I got back home, I had two hours free to paint! That's sth worth mentioning, since my free time for painting every day is usually 30 minutes..you can imagine my joy when I realized how much time I had available for painting! :-)

I finished painting 6 figures and I nearly completed 4 of my 6 Russian Gaz trucks (see previous post).
Below are the photos of the finished figures - photos of the trucks, will follow in due course! Stay tuned! :-)

    1. I am lucky Alan. I have a room only for my toys...I don't have to take in and out all the time the paints and the models,when I feel like painting. When I find some minutes during the day (while ironing, cleaning up the house etc...), I paint, I glue, that sort of stuff. That's how I do it. :)
