after the problem with the speedline jet, and the fact that it is my birthday today, I wanted something to do that wasn't too taxing on the older brain cells than they were on Friday, lo...….

so I put the arms onto the figurines I have made, and then filled the gaps with milliput white...……..next will be painting them.

they look a little like small aliens at the moment.....they've been sprayed with filler primer to give a good key to the yellow I have chosen nearest to the dry immersion suits that the crew wear, and then I painted their faces with humbrol Maskol……….a rubberised paint on masking that dries pretty quickly and can then be peeled off when I need to paint their faces...…..don't want too many coats of paint on them to hide the detailing.

a less shaky hand with no arthritis will make a better job of painting them, and they do need touching up on the yellow with a needle point brush which I've just paid a tenner for at my local art shop, and the fleshy bits of hands and face need painting but they are getting there.

apart from the two sizes and colours depicting them as RNLI crew, which goes on the life jackets and helmets, which I am taking to a vinyl printers tomorrow the figures are finished and apart from my ropey shaky painting, and they haven't come out too badly. 




they'll look ok from 50' and 25 knots, lol...…….

the crew finished, and their first job was to take out an old classic lifeboat for a shakedown before a classic lifeboat rally.
