Already my first project done. I found this model in my basement this morning. I’ve had it, what, 15+ years? How many times did it hit the table in that time? Not one that I recall! I got Woodbine Designs Not Aliens Colonial Marines at Historicon so I’m keeping this baby and putting it to work. When I found it, it was missing 3 wheels and the turret. Some digging and luck turned them all up. A bit of glue and she is good to go!
This is what I’m talking about. This baby you can still get here online. Who wouldn’t want 17 quid in their pocket all for the cost of 3 drops of superglue? I know I would and this is a pretty doable project – right up there with several of the others I have planned to finish. The key is – are the elements of this project that can combine with other projects? The more overlap you can find the better as it maximizes your work. A one off building only good for one project? Don’t waste your time. A building or model you can re-use in many projects – that is a winner!
This model could use some more paint. It looks cool, though, so it will be a popular piece to have on the table.
