Today I am flirting with my first time using "yellow-tac" for spray painting models. Well - the tac went ON beautifully. Unfortunately I can't say the same for my "skunked" model master dark green which apparently decided it wasn't going to mix properly even after an eternity of shaking. So I have a sloppy looking mess and the tac got all melty...SO going to dust off and try on another model.
|Some of the places where I pulled the tac off got smudgy with leftover tac. But I like the smoother lines. In most cases, it looks better than when I use a brush.|
|You can see it still on the barrel|
|Not his best side...|
So all in all, I think I'm going to try this out another few times and see how it gets. If it gets good, I'll post more pictures. Also needs detailing and decals. More to follow on the T-72 refurb adventures.
Well with the exception of the NEXT Nor'easter which is headed up the Atlantic Coast, I'm greatly hoping this is the kick off of campaign season. I have alot of projects on the fire now and would love to see some of them pay off in a game, eventually.
Looking forward, I will be putting Black Powder through its paces by gaming Loison and Kellerman's attack against the British 50th Foot on the hill south of Vimeiro. I may have just enough battalions painted up for that attack.
Also - and who doesn't like "one brain cell" rules? I am going to try a similar battle with the "Junior General" rules which are battle rules made for school kids to teach them about history. Mr Fritz's rules are very straightforward and they look like a cracking good time. Check out his site at www.juniorgeneral.org and click on scenarios. Gettysburg looks like alot of fun, as does Quatre Bras.
And this is Sound Officers Call's 300th post! That's alot of brainpower for a guy like me!
