We're on the second full work-week after my vacation and I still haven't gotten a hold of myself. The fact that I haven't got much done about any of my projects tells the woeful tale quite clearly. Maybe a part of the blame lies on the workday rhythm I've had for these two weeks: I have much less of that random time available. The next two weeks should be better from that point of view.
I had already painted the wooden pieces, so they didn't require that sort of attention. As the oars were going to be glued on to the bottom of the inflatable boat, they shouldn't be all painted with the same exact paints. For the similarity reasons I washed the bottom pieces with Citadel's Devlan Mud so that they'd be like the planks of the sub itself. The oars I washed with the same company's Badab Black.
While I was reading my rss feeds, I suddendly realized that the stand's plaque would maybe need some painting, too. Thanks to the FSM forums and all the handy things they talk about! I decided to paint the sunken letters with the aforementioned black liquid. Of course the first iteration did not provide me with a perfect result, there's going to be at least another painting round.
That said, I'm not going to paint the Bronco logo, as it's not important enough for me to suffer a whole long evening with a stiff neck -caused headache.
