Whilst it is true to say I have some French blood (a short story for another day) I cannot claim to speak the language with any level of ability. At a push I can read a menu, fill up the car with petrol, get by in a supermarket and order any number of beers up to ten. Accordingly any error in translation in the title of this post is down to Google translate.
This is the second model That I have managed to complete having been laying around for far too long. In this instance the French mechanic was painted the best part of a year ago and that is as far as I got. The original plan had been to make a bigger garage type scene with the British Despatch Rider who appeared in last weeks post but in the end the idea just fizzled out as my mind moved on. There it sat until I went through my bitz box and found the dog.
The facial expression on the dog seemed to say “What, me?” and from there it was just a case of how best to represent it. A trashed workshop came to mind and thereafter it was the simple matter of making it happen. The figure is another 1/35th scale Soverign 2000 figure, the dog I have no idea about as it was a purchase from years and years ago. Most of the accessories are from Tamiya with a fair bit of scratch building.
Apologies for the poor images below. At some point I might try and retake them and lose the shadows.
