All moved and ensconced in my new (temporary) painting room. Today (Monday) was my first day at the new office, and a fuel spill and lorry fire on one of the main roads in the area saw my travel time home go from 20 minutes to over 2 hours. Just like being back working in Glasgow!
When I got home I really didn't want to do any painting. But I knew that was a dangerous path to go down... I just knew if I didn't do something it would be weeks before I picked a paintbrush up again. So I forced myself to get organised and do a little line highlighting.
Not great photos, I know. I also managed to get a fuel trailer and a Wasp done with the lightened Russian Uniform.
Still greys and other colours to highlight, base to do, etc. I'll see how the highlights work in the light of day tomorrow and decide if I need to do more or go lighter.
I also received my hobby drill that I had ordered. £15 from Ebuyer and I got all this:
I've already tested it out - the largest size drill bit is the perfect size for the magnets I have - a small mount of work and one of my Sherman Fireflys now has a magnetised turret! I'm aiming to work my way through my whole collection of resin tanks over the next few weeks. No hurry though as it is slightly mess and noisy.
I'm going to try and keep the momentum up painting wise, as if I let it slide it will be too easy to not do anything. A little and often will keep things just ticking over. The trick seems to be to just do something - even slow progress is still progress!
Hopefully an easier journey home tomorrow night and I'll feel less rushed for time. My aim is to get at least another 2 Churchills highlighted.
