    What to do when it's a blizzard? I bought two model kits and jumped in. I haven't assembled any since I was in school, and that was... a very long time ago. There are so many faults with these I wouldn't know where to start, but I feel criticism will help me do a better job next time.

    Shown here are a GAZ-AAA truck and Komintern artillery tractor, both pressed into German service. The truck is a Zvezda kit & they omit things... like locating pins. So I held parts of the cab together until the glue started to work. Since I haven't an air brush, weathering is incomplete. I also used a stencil for the German markings. I believe they are meant for air brush & not manual brush. Back to regular decals next kit.

    Next will be a Russian BA-10 armored car. SW

    Weather has still been cold & rainy so I did another. While very far from good, I learned a bit about weathering with this one. This is Tamiya's flak wagon kit, but I didn't like the quad 20 mount at all so I just finished the halftrack proper & hope to use it in a diorama.

    The main thing I learned here? When it looks good, quit messing with it! ;) SW
