Challenge Day 74 - Tow Trucks In Space

I had submitted this over a week ago along with the horde of pirates buccaneers, but with Curt suffering a backlog of entries during his Valentine's weekend getaway it didn't get posted until Monday.

So here it is at last - a Lady Christina class recovery and repair ship from Ground Zero Games. I decided to do something fun with this and painted it in the livery colours of the Automobile Association, one of the UK's main roadside recovery organisations.






To give an idea of the size of this ship, here are two pics showing it alongside a 15mm UNSC Light Infantry rifleman from GZG.





I haven't managed to do any painting since Monday night as I've been getting home from work knackered again. This doesn't bode well for finishing my Steiner figure in time for the "favourite character" bonus round, not for getting enough figures painted to achieve my new 2400 point target. Oh well, that's life I suppose.

  12. Just caught up with you again and your output is once again inspiring. I think the space ships are a great way to break up the monotony.
