What astounded me was that even though I'd cleaned up what little flash there was and based and undercoated the figures, there was still one that had an arm missing !
All of this despite the time I'd spent on them and the photographs seen by my followers (including a close-up ), no-one had seen the poor chap with but a single arm and if indeed anyone had spotted it, they didn't mention it.
The photograph below (for the doubters) was cropped from the image of four of the Merchants from last week's post.:
|Can anyone spot the missing limb now ?|
|One of many such bits.|
With the delay in requisitioning and replacing an arm well in hand the whole cast were ready to have some paint and here's the results:
|"When I were a lad..."|
|"Buy something already"|
|"Lovely jug or vase sir ?"|
|"Also available in pink"|
|"Giz yer dosh"|
|"I hate shopping"|
|"Ready wrapped children, get yer ready..."|
|"At least I've got one nice looking jug"|
|"I wish I'd brought the trolley"|
|"I wish I'd got the pink"|
|"Damn I forgot my handbag"|
|All the chaps|
|And all the Ladies|
|The whole ensemble|
What little time I had left this week, for hobby related things was spent working on the Souk, which is almost completely painted up and with just a small of work still to do - some internal detailing to add (if time permits) and a little more painting to do. All being well the Souk should be ready for being the subject of next week's post.
That's it then for this week, thanks for taking the time to visit. Hopefully you've found something of interest and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
