Weak W(h)ine, no Cheese

Been a tough Couple of weeks.  Two major car repairs have radically altered the holiday  plans and now my US forces for Vietnam received a devastating setback.

I went down stairs a couple of days ago to work on some 15mm moderns, and found a box of 20mm Vietnam vehicles and helicopters sticking out edge-on from behind a set of shelves.

I guess that I should be happy that only the M113s and UH-1s took a beating, the others are okay, other than a few scratches.  But the M60 MGs on the M113s are trash, I'm going to have to scratch-build a master and cast replacements.  Never even got them onto the table.

Oh well, where's my glue...


  1. Ooops, but there again here's a chance to improve them, trying to look on the bright side of life and all.

  2. well, from miniature painter to another... condolences, but Ashely is right. Well, loooong time ago I had clear coated some 1/72 tanks outside and I was coming back when I tripped over, me, tray with the tanks... disaster on the entire line...

  3. Yeah, good way to look at it. Most of them needed more work anyway, especially the M113s.
