A somewhat non-constant painting plan

First stage

Painting the Star Destroyer started just like all her previous paintjobs: with random areas of various colours. Just like with the Kamov, this one got some polka dots for good measure.

She liked the idea of painting the display stand black, according to my suggestion. This way the base wouldn't steal the viewer's attention from the ship itself.

Second stage: Darth Maul -look

For some reason she decided, in the middle of the painting process, that it looked wrong and was totally ruined. It was always supposed to look like Darth Maul. Where did this come from? No clue and I really couldn't guess. And no, I didn't get sense-making replies to my confused questions.

So far for the Maul paintjob she's done the top surfaces black, the bottom was still as it was, just primed. The Muses haven't been too active, so we'll see when this project gets some wind behind it again, and how that is going to work out.


A lively work queue

My friend Tape had obtained a good pile of kits from an estate or two and offered the overflow for my own sick projects. I promised to offer a good home to a couple of tanks, a Tamiya's Panther (Ausf. G, early) and a Revell Jagdpanzer IV (Ausf. F, early). He suggested a couple for my Project Assistant and she received a Zvezda's IS-2 (1:72) and an Airfix Panther (H0 (wtf?)). The Zvezda kit was "a no glue required" show so I could let her build it all by herself. Supposedly.

My firstborn's models

My models

And when would I get to start with any of them? No clue, absolutely no clue whatsoever.

About the summer schedule of the 'Mumblings

Yeah... I was writing this before my summer vacation and I hadn't gotten a single second of modeling time in ages, and I didn't think I was going to do that by the time the vacation started. While on vacation I was obviously not going to work on anything and most likely the first week(s) would be a "nah, there's no time now" kind of a thing. Or so they've been over the last five years.

So, it could be that the Project Mumblings will take their first "now there won't be a post every single week" since the early months. Amazing, in a way. But I guess I'll get back to some sort of speed at some point, as soon as the general life settles into its own routes :)
