Blenheim, latest to emerge from the Partizan 'plane purchase pile is this Beaufort. Never having owned or built a Beaufort I had to do a bit of research to establish the maker of this kit. I think it is the Frog (or Novo) Mk1.

As regular readers will know, I have never laid any claim to any great talent on the painting front. Though I can churn out toys in reasonable numbers. But as Stalin said "quantity has a quality all of it's own." And he should know.
Here then, following a flood of requests from at least three readers, is part one of my duffer's guide to painting 54mm plastic toy soldiers. This post deals with preparing the figures for paint, which represents at least half the work.
May figures will have extremities which need straightening. The bayonets of these CTS North Koreans are typical examples.

The six French gunners are nicely painted metal figures and set me back £20. I have simply added my usual mdf bases and a coat of varnish. They are posed here with a couple of Armies in Plastic guns.
