1/72 WWII Figures
I stated in a previous blog post that I would try to post an update at least once a week. I have been able to stick to that promise fairly well as I have been starting and finishing different projects. However, this past week I was not able to fit in anytime for the hobby. So I fell into the trap that I am sure hinders most blogs, not having any new material on hand to post about.
However, as I was looking over my painting table and small storage area my eyes fell upon my 1/72 WWII plastic figures produce by Italeri. I realized that these were some of the very first miniatures I had ever paint and based. When I first began to have an interest in this hobby someone recommend I get some 1/72 figures from one of my favorite time periods and paint them up to see what I thought. I took their advice and purchased a set of American and German infantry and painted up some poses from each box. I enjoyed the process and end result and so this was my "gateway drug" into the hobby. Since I finished these figures before I even thought about starting a blog I figured I would post a picture of them so you can see my very first foray into the hobby. Hopefully this next week will bring some more time to progress on my current projects.
