The problem with detailing-work is that it's so S..L..O..W..!
I mean, you spend hours and hours doing tiny little intricate things, sit back and... it's like you've done practically nothing!

This week, I've been thinking about necks and legs. And chains.
So, pretty much a normal week for me...
I've had a clear image in my mind throughout this project as to what I wanted the 'neck' area should look like. This was seriously fiddly work and many expletives were uttered! Thank God I found my pliers!
I'm happy with the results - but yet another weekend has gone (Monday is my Sunday) and there is still so much to do!

Anyway, judge for yourselves...

So: with the bridge in place and ONE leg rivetted, my count is now up to 2,146!
Also this week, I have been working on my first commission from an overseas wargaming colleague: A Wild West Undertakers, based on the premises of Creepy Pete Haldezos, Main St., Leadwood...

I'm also working on concept sketches for a new BIG Victorian Science-Fiction set-piece, which I expect to take a year... More on that soon...
Anyway, that's all for now. I have a lot of stuff to get on with! A chap just can't spend all his time blogging away!
All the Best!
