Operation Bodenplatte 
With only a week to go until I leave for France, I've decided not to start on the Rapid Fire! clean up and basing but to take the figures with me to sort out over there. I can't take any painting equipment with me but am able to take some tools, glue and figures to assemble, ready for painting in the New Year. This seems like a sensible way to go about things to me.
However, I have a week until we depart for Brittany so will try to squeeze in a little bit of painting in the mean time. I'm going to try to paint up a small selection of late war Luftwaffe fighters and fighter bombers for Operation Bodenplatte. They shouldn't take too long as there's no tricky camouflage to do and mottle pattern is relatively easy to replicate. I'll give it a go and see how far I get.
The painting is by Nicholas Trudgian...very cool!
