A Fistful of Lead 
I've caught the cold that's been going round at work, so haven't been feeling great. I've cracked on with the livery stable model, nonetheless, and have been busy sticking coffee stirrers to the outer walls, the hay loft floor and the lean to extension, ready for an undercoat of Halfords ultra matt camouflage brown or red primer, although I haven't decided which yet. This is a laborious process but saves a lot of money, with the basic Warbases barn kit less than half the price of the nearest alternative. I still need to plank the end walls, texture the internal base and clad the roof in card, so there's at least an hour more of work to be done, assuming the Lemsip kicks in at some point.
