15mm Painted SAS Scud Hunters from CP Models.......

....and a bit of commentary on making small metal models!

Not great painting or especially good pictures but some idea of the scale of these big boys...if that's your thing.

Me and Ray are on nights, I've found that fiddling and making 15mm models and vehicles and big hands don't work but super glue seals the cuts really quickly as it was really used for originally in Vietnam!

Brief commentary shortened...

Fecking hell...
Look at all this fecking flash...
Bloody mold lines.......
That hit the bone.......
I can't get my fingers apart........
I'm feeling faint........
Ray!, do you have any acetone....
Fecking hell........
Chilli cheese dip....mmmmmmmmmm!
How the feck do they expect me to get this in that hole...
I'm not a fecking engineer.....
Fecking hell......
For fecks sake I've dropped it on the floor...again!
Ray, stop fecking laughing...
I hate this fecking hobby......
That felt like a tendon.......
For the fecking love of Michael Flately....
That's fecking that I've had enough......
Fecking hobby......
I'll pick it out of the fecking wall later Ray!


15mm Peter Pig, The Scene and Khurasan Miniatures for scale....

  5. For fucks sake Francis, some of your readers may die from the shock of all this cussing. But those would just be the gobshites amongst them.

    And I don't know what you're complaining about because the SWMBO said "He's never had any problems getting into the hole before."

  6. So a pretty straight forward project then? Don't you just love how fast you can move when you drop your scalpel between yer legs!

    Then that second lightning movement when you realise you have missed yer baws and it is continuing downward onto yer toes!!!

    Nice work on the figures.

  7. Well they did come out pretty well, even if they caused you to question your very existence and nearly kill yourself with super glue.

  8. I know how hard it is to paint things that small! Well done, and you are well within your rights (under the circumstances) to drop a few interesting words!

  18. great work fran. you experience with 15mm makes me glad that I game with 20mm

  19. Great work as usual mate! 'Medical' Super Glue is still used worldwide, but it's slightly different in formula to what we get in the shops. It's good stuff until you mistake it for lip balm, hemorrhoid cream or use it to stick false eyelashes on (all true btw!)... all of which are described as "inadvertent self-administration of superglue" on triage notes.

  20. Great minis and the commentary sounds a bit just like me when putting models together!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Very nice, despite all the stress :D

  24. LMAO, They look great sir! Did the chilli dip not sting those cuts?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Even after those f..... commentaries, those minis still look good to me.

  26. I now have tears streaming down my face! I feel your pain, but the results look spot on Fran.

  27. What a brilliant post, Fran. It had me laoughing out loud. I totally agree that the last photo is of Asterix.

  28. Good work, never mind the feck!

  29. You invoked Michael fecking Flately, now the end will end is a great fecking line reel, oh God, oh God.

    They are great painted figures you have there Fran and I swear one of them is Sean Bean.

  30. It was well worth your trouble those came out great

    ReplyDelete
  31. A very nice group of models, Fran. Looking at them, I am thinking about those African Militia from "Musketeer Miniatures"...

    Best regards.

    ReplyDelete
  32. What Jim Hale said. Regular super-glue is ok in a pinch, but it's not quite the same formula as medical super-glue and is probably bit more toxic.

    Nice figs.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sorry to hear they were so much trouble. They came out well. I am very paranoid about slicing myself open while cleaning mold lines. Thus far (knock on wood) I've done okay.

    ReplyDelete
  34. this is what you guys do at work? lol that is awesome

    ReplyDelete
  35. They look good Fran, I'm sure they are worth every cut and abrasion. Let me get some lemon for you. I hear that works wonders on open wounds.
