So I am going to do a do-over to last years painting challenge. Same parameters, same goal. The good news is that I am further along than where I was this time last year. Over the winter I did paint a bit more on these models. I was able to lay a lot of ground work on about half of the 80 models. Instead of being all dark blue, I now have a lot that are the base blue that I want to use, and red where they need to be. The bad news is that my surviving parent is the one that causes more stress in my life than anything else these days.
I am confident that this year we will have this project finished by labor day. Stay posted for pictures of my progress.
