It's been a long time since I have updated my BLOG. I was busy the last year with the Knights of Columbus and didn't have much time to paint. That's over and now I'm back to painting. During that year I also discovered a social network called Gather. One of the things you can do there is set up groups to discuss specific topics.

I have added more detail, metallic trimmings and a bone white that looks very bright given all the dark grey. Although I like the structures the detail is a bear to paint.
