I can't see anything but...

...TINY LITTLE SQUARES! As you will see in the next picture, I have had a busy couple of days painting tiny little squares:

I still have to highlight the black squares (among other things) so the monotony isn't quite over yet. In order to keep myself sane, I have also been assembling another squad of Clankers for the tunnel fighters:

As you can see in the pic, the heads are all converted from the original (there was a little head plonked on top that looked far too vulnerable for such a bulky suit) with green-stuff and hatches (from Old Crow). I've also swapped the legs about a bit so needed to add some green-stuff to the hip joints...apart from that they are assembled as they come out of the box.

Speaking of removing them from the box, the battlesuits needed a HUGE amount of preparation because they have been afflicted with a case of 'lead-rot'. I'm hoping that a coat or two of paint will seal all the nastiness in, otherwise I will just have to sit back and watch them slowly dissolve. Mind you, if that does happen, they won't need to have any battle damage added!

So...what else?

I am suffering from a mild case of whip-lash. That would explain why I felt so rotten after falling over at the ice rink. Mind you, I'd rather have a bit of whip-lash than have my head hit the ice.

...the things we do to keep our children occupied during the holidays...SHOULD HAVE GONE BOWLING INSTEAD!!!

My motorcycle parts haven't arrived yet :(...but it has been very warm over the weekend so it could have been a blessing in disguise (because I would be working outside, in the sun...and I am an ex-ginger so I burn).

I have been strongly resisting the urge to buy more model kits. I need five aircraft kits for ANOTHER project...but in about 6 weeks I am going to Kenya for a couple of months so buying more stuff is just madness (as it will just sit there)...

Back to work tomorrow!

See you through the drainpipe!

Thanks for the offer, Mike but if people want to find out what I share with them on-line, they can read it here.

That is the reason I started the blog.
