Happy New Year !!!
Taking the opportunity of the last post I would like to present here another Artillery set painted last year. ( No base this time). The classic Airfix set of "WW1 Royal Horse Artillery" .
This set first released in 1968 and continue to the next decades. But the continuous production wears out the molds so the 80's and 90's sets are a bit scrappy regarding the mold lines and the material.. I had a real difficult time trying to clean these up... But finally did... :)
I have found an older set and purchased it and the difference is 100% obvious. The material is also better and stronger than this rubbery plastic. Also have to say that all the new releases of these Airfix sets are having the same problems. I have painted British WW1 and French WW1 with excactly the same problems.
......here are the remains of a day's job...hahaha
A good wash to clean all their sins.... sinking in the bottom of a .. tupper...
...and finally the painting stage. Here are some of my references.
and the final result...I love these horses!! They turned out really good :)
