a model finished !!

one of the ground zero games UN space command deep range explorers  ( very small scale starship)  the UNSC Ian M banks,  to go with the other 2 I have the UNSC Nation, and the UNSC Aaronovitch, the class are all named after sci fi writers, so if I ever see any others, ill have to ask the owners, just so I can gauge there reading tastes.
 https://shop.groundzerogames.co.uk/full-thrust-starships/unsc/ft-1115.html   for a bare metal pic, to give an idea of size the base is 25mm across

1 figure

im also having a go at quick repaints on the second hand stuff I got at the start of the year,   a crane / recovery tank from old crow, and the light apc that goes with the ex GZG dropship   both 25mm wargames scale, so olive body metal derail and ID numbers, should give a quick turn round and the satisfaction of finishing summit   :thumbsup:

went to the Womborne club again yesterday had a good chat,  and managed to find the bits I need for the chally out of the other 2 kits in the single box they are packed into, Mrs SP took the 4ground medieval building she nearly finished last time, and folks were rather impressed, the teddy bear fur thatch seemed  to be something they hadn't seem before, and the western Livery stable she was working on got a few favourable comments.  :thumbsup:

finished the I R A N from cosi, one of the wingtip wheels on the racing Harrier and both HARMs on the Phantom, so hopefully be able to have another go at the chally now ive some desk space again.

Teddy bear fur thatch ? Not an idea I've heard of before, sounds a good one  :thumbsup:

Should be plenty around this time of year as well, what with Teddy's moulting and getting their summer coats  ;)
Decals my @r$e!

off to the womborne club again, took some of my British armour, Tamiya chally, desert chally and chieftain, and my academy warrior and managed to get the hulls on the chally 2 together  :thumbsup: a nice couple of hours, but a good chunk of this morning and tomorrow morning has been involved in helping a friend clear stuff out of their basement before they moved house my legs!  stairs lots and lots of stairs.
