|Ship, newly undercoated with grey spray and a little paint|
It's not much really, all three ships have been undercoated and had some paint added to them in varying amounts and styles.
Having to paint with the models on my lap and my failing appreciation of colours (not just the poor light or my lack of painting skills) has met with some unusual (to say the least) colour combos - must try not to paint in the evenings!
I've tried many colours, washes, highlights etc. but am still experimenting!
|Deck of the above, showing hatch.|
|The back end (technical term "blunt end")|
|Hatch on the front sloping (?) bit.|
|Crows nest - a figure now sits in comfortably (20mm square base)|
|Another view of the deck (bored yet?)|
It's the most 'finished of all three and I'm fairly happy with the overall paint effect - so far, there's still a lot more paint to slap on.
I'd forgotten just how much painting (and time) that these models take to complete.

|You can't see the join if you turn the lights low and squint|
|Another boring crow's nest|
|Obligatory really boring picture|
|The current state of my gaming table.|
If I wasn't so useless with DIY things, I'd have done them myself, but illnesses, uselessness (I recently levelled up) etc. all work me - and I should be up ladders etc nor be near to power tools!.
|The two new shelves (about seven foot up)|
|"Jablite", eight bits, 4 x1.5 ft - enough to cover 4ft x 12ft for under £15|

I hope you've found something of interest and as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
