I promised yesterday that I'd post pics of the two buildings I've finished painting, so here they are:
I have made good progress on the third building, but it will take another couple of evenings to finish. My big quandary at the moment is deciding on the colour to use for the door and window frames. I'm tempted to use different colours for the two properties in the building, maybe green for one and yellow or red for the other.
I've finished painting the cops. Now I've just got to wait for the weather to be less yucky so that I can hit them with the matt varnish spray.
As for the "Oh Dear....", well, wanting lots of cars for my Gangster project (for the wise guys themselves and as scenery/cover for games) I faced a choice of shelling out loadsamoney for kits from Blue Moon and such like which might never get made up and painted or I could spend abitlessloadsamoney buying some through Amazon or I could spend alotlessloadsamoney by signing up for E(vil)bay. I managed to find a seller with a vast range of Matchbox "Models of Yesteryear" available as "Buy It Now". So I did. About 24 assorted cars, vans and trucks (including a fire engine!) should be hitting my doorstep in a few days' time.
