All done... or not

I've been happily working on the looted Universal Carrier doing all the weathering over the last couple of days. All the time I had a nagging feeling in my head that there's something I've forgotten, but going through the model multiple times I found no unpainted spots. Well now I've got all the weathering effects done and I was just going to apply a final coat of matt varnish when it hit me. I had forgotten the bloody decals!!

I had planned on putting massive Balkan Crosses around the tiny tank as recognition for friendlies, but now they seem to be rolling out all camouflaged. Oh well a few steps back as I now have to apply decals, another coat of gloss varnish, do weathering over the decalled areas and then varnish everything again... Just as I was happy that I finished something in only a few days and then I have to go back and redo stuff. And it will take some time too as the enamel washes take 4-5 hours to dry before anything can be added on top...



Being annoyed at my mistake I decided to work on something completely different. I've had this 80s Citadel Chaos Toilet sitting on my desk for quite a while now waiting for some excuse to paint it up. I've skipped most of the themed challenges until now, but this was too good to skip as it should be a quick paint job and I reckon a chaotic man eating toilet suits the Comedy section quite nicely.

  1. The carrier is really good, fine camo!

  2. The camo looks superb, and that toilet would scare the crap right out of you! It's always annoying finding things you've missed. I often spot unpainted things when I'm varnishing :-)

    1. Yeah, the funny thing is, that no matter how many times you check you won't spot a thing. But the moment you've applied varnish it just somehow shines and catches your eye immediately...

  3. Decals aside, it still looks amazing!

    1. Thanks! At least there's some consolidation in not being the only one to mess things up every now and then :)

  5. Well, you sure proved you don´t need the decals to produce an impressive vehicle! Amazing camo - and a fine crew! :D
