Got some time last evening to start unpacking the hobby space, and pulled a few miniatures out to be worked on, as well as a “disturbed” diorama. This Diorama was really easy to fix up, as the the jeep and shaving solider popped off the plaster made cobblestone street.
More good news! When the in-laws stopped by for a visit this morning, my Father-in-Law had purchased a plastic model kit and started to build it. He ran out of steam, and really didn’t want to paint it, so he brought it to me to complete or practice with or, as he said, “just throw it out.” I’m still looking over the instructions to see what options I have left and color schemes, but this little 1/72 scale De Havilland Mosquito, Mk. II is now mine to play with!
Of course this means having to pick-up some RAF “Naval” colors, but twit my arm at buying hobby stuff! First there is final assembly, as well as sub-assembly painting “in-place” and hopefully I can get that canopy off to get at the cockpit. Anyway it will be an excuse to play with new camouflage color combinations!
Now, to the bad news. I’m pretty sure I’ve discovered why my camera phone is taking such crappy photos. It appears on one if it’s many drops I’ve managed to crack the clear lens cover on the back-facing camera! Looks like I may have to trade-up sooner than expected, but then it is an iPhone 7, been paid off for almost two years, but I think that will have to wait until after a new mortgage payment or two!
Second bad bit of news. I unboxed Bullseye from Marvel Crisis Protocol and started assembly. After getting his upper toros and legs together, I noticed I don’t have his head. I’ve search through the logical places, but to no avail. Going out to Atomic Mass Game’s website, it appears they no longer have a replacement part service, I sent an email request anyway – at worse they say sorry, at best I get a new head in the mail! I’m not sure how he would play, but I love the comic book villain and was looking forward to warming up my painting with a simple paint scheme. Still gotta continue to search, but I doubt I’ll re-purchase the box set, as I’m not sure both the wife an I will have Daredevil (the other character in the two box set).
