BMP 2 - Work in Progress

BMP 2 - first spraying

Spent a splendidly lazy day with Mrs Kinch today, our first full day together since her mother got ill. It was wonderful. I did a spot of pottering, putting together a unit of Spanish light infantry (I took your advice Foy) and a little work on a book project.

But lastly, I glued on the last of the ATGM mounts to my BMPs and started spraying. I rather cheated and looked up a Soviet armour tutorial on the Guild.

Getting that ATGM launcher to stick wasn't easy

I began the second part of the process, spraying the vehicles green - when I had to stop. My war games room is quite big and has a large window, but the Army painter spray is just too strong. Phew - a job for the morning when it's light out side.

  1. I am very sure that Mrs. Kinch will very much prefer that you spray outdoors rather than in . . . and domestic calm is much preferable to the alternative.

  2. Those lazy days with one's spouse are the best kind.

  3. Always best to spray paint in an outbuilding or the garden - especially if you wish to retain the tolerance of the domestic authorities.
