We continue to be safe and well at Awdry Towers; I am truly grateful to be home. That said the idea that enforced isolation brings with it an excess of free time has been proven to be a fallacy here on the Sunshine Coast. No sooner I am returned from my residential duties at school, then I am press ganged into cheffing duties at home! Add to this the daily route march that the Saintly Mrs. Awdry has devised* and I find that those quiet moments, to slip away to daub paint on metal and plastic, have become few and far between!
*All 10,000 steps in one go I might add!
This, then, is just briefest of posts to kickstart my month and to document the latest progress; two Opel Blitz trucks, again from 'Rubicon Models'. As I have come to expect from the company there are plenty of construction options, but I went for the most basic and even then managed to break off some extraneous detail in their relocation from school to home.
'AK Interactive' enamel. The last technique was new to me and I was a bit heavy handed with the first truck, but learning from my mistakes used a wash of thinners to help manipulate the medium more successfully on the second.
