...well, this was till I unpacked them and found the Greyhound which was part of the deal and found him just awful. It was missing some smaller parts as well as the ring mounted cal. 50 HMG and the gun breech for the 37mm gun. And as if this wasn't enough I had payed almost twice it's retail price for an absolutely poorly painted block of resin.
To be honest there's no blame to the seller as I just should have had a closer look at the picture of the car he used for advertising the model. Or I should have asked for more and especially detail shots of the thing especially considering the price I was about to pay. Well, something new learned I suppose. So I decided to cover up as much of the damage as possibly by using some spare equipment parts I had flying around including a .50 HMG I just recently had rediscovered in my lead mountain and give it a complete repaint. It's still missing the breech and some other parts but honestly it's good enough for gaming I think
And as I was at it already I decided to finally paint the two Deuce '2 and a half tons' trucks I had flying around for some years now. Initially I had planned to use them as lend & lease trucks for my soviets but as they arrived I was absolutely put off by the models and forgot about them.
The main problem wasn't them beeing nice models but having some rather nasty casting issues. But as I already had a not really perfect M8 at hand I decided to turn on my trusty Dremel and remove as much as possible of the problematic spots.
You can still see the spots where I used the Dremel as I didn't bother to try to mask it with Green Stuff or the like but again these are just expensive toys for gaming some silly games :-)
All in all I'm rather pleased by the results especially considering how they looked before...
... I liked it so much indeed that I decided to buy me some more stuff for my US boys ;-)
So thanks for watching and hope you enjoyed!
