Didn't need a better camera after all, the models are still brilliant.

All is quite on the Western Front!
I have just started more WDLR topics.
One coming along nicely in 1/76 but watching paint dry is not my favourite occupation I am afraid.

This is a work in progress, not much stuck down yet, the howitzer is from Strelets and I built it last year.
The truck is by WD Models and is half painted, the loco was scratch built as was the bogie wagon, this is also half painted and needs transfers and weathering.
I then got side tracked, I need to get on with this, but painting is not my favourite task.

It's getting hard to tell which is model and which photo.

It's all done by mirrors.
No left hand involved either.

Sit down and SHUT UP, no favouritism here - if I'm being nice to you, be worried!

Just about to apply the transfers to the bogie wagon, they are of the rub down variety from WD Models, they are quite tricky to get in just the right place, you only get one shot really.
Wish me luck.

Well transfers applied, here is the result, don't look too closely though.
Same type on the LGOC truck.
Too many trees in the background for a WW1 scene really.
