S Models Vickers Light Tank - BEF colours
You won't be hearing much from me for a little while as I managed to drop my laptop and I'm now in a situation where I have to decide whether its worth fixing or not. I will mostly be operating off my phone and occasionally Mrs Kinchs machine. This rather puts a damper on my blogging.
The camouflage scheme is proving dissappointingly effective
In the meantime, I've been painting Vickers light tanks. I might add aerials to these - but I think the camouflage scheme is a bit dull. Now as it happens, it looks quite mottled and that is probably good, but it seems a bit underwhelming. I might dial up the contrast on the highlight on the base coat, so the other colour (Vallejo Marron Violet) looks better. We shall see.
Still needs weathering and decals
I have another four of these to paint. So I will need to come to some sort of decision. But the more I look at them - the more I think they need aerials with pennants. I'm relatively sure that there were pennants.
I turned 34 the other day and Mrs Kinch presented me with the above - they are excellent. I've been reading Volume 9 and rather enjoying it. She is truly a pearl beyond price.
HAT have produced their Seven Years War plastics and I definitely won't be going anywhere near that particular conflict. Honest guv.
