Yes, trees. I've had a pack of 25 Noch trees sitting around for ages and finally decided to do something with them. Today I have done the first step - sticking them onto 32mm washers with superglue. Tomorrow, I'll be dunking them in 25% PVA to seal the flock onto the bristles then leaving them to dry for 24 hours or so (hanging upside-down over a plastic container to catch the excess PVA as it drips). During the week I'll be adding some gunk to the bases to hide the washers and the roots and adding some texture to the trunks, then painting the ground and trunks.
When they are done, I'll be donating them to the club as the stock seems to be very depleted.
As it's Saturday, I'm sure you will realise that purchases of cars were made. I was good today - just the two:
Yup, Hotwheels "Monster Jam" monster trucks. Whilst perusing the interweb thingy, I came across some unofficial rules for using these in Car Wars and thought "why not?".
"Hold it, hold it - not so fast missus. I think I can see some other vehicles in the top pics. You didn't buy just the two cars did you?"
OK, it's a fair cop guv. I would like you to take into account 11 other offences...
Mostly for the Wastelands project, but I'm starting to think that I could use the buggy types for off-road arena games in Car Wars.
And then there's this one. I'm not sure whether this will go to the Wastelands or regular CW project box.
And I solemnly promise that I won't buy any more cars. Well, maybe some more monster trucks.
