The Painter's Progress....Part 3

In a surge of enthusiasm I managed to assemble eight out of sixteen pre dreadnought battleships destined for the fleets of Fezia and Rusland so am confident that the brushwork will begin in earnest (actually it will begin in my loft if I were to split hairs....) by the weekend. The two items I am painting for the sheer delight of it are also moving along quite nicely so I expect them to be ready before then all being well.

Meanwhile, this evening's entertainment beckons as once again at the club we will be taking to the air in the skies over France in 1940 - with the French providing the opponents for the Luftwaffe for a change.

In the interim though (and this is partially why this post is a short one), I have a second interview for a permanent job this afternoon, so much collective crossing of extremities from each and everyone of you would be much appreciated!

David, I am delighted to hear that you are painting things for the sheer joy of it. I shall also say a prayer for you regarding the new potential job - at least that way you cab say you have one.

I wish you the best of luck with your interview, sir.

I will most certainly cross my fingers for you on the interview.

And do get started on those figures you are doing for pure pleasure as I'm certain it will lead to more such excursions.

Hi Conrad,

Six months and counting has been the length of my current unemployment and the list of domestic chores has been completed so I need to get back into work as soon as I can.

Thankyou for your prayers.

It is funny though, forty years a wargamer and it is only now I have decided that I enjoy painting...;-)

All the best,

DC
