I won't bore you with the ugly details, so no photos this time. Suffice to say that the latest conversion attempt looks like a leprous, multiple-amputee paralympian Octosaur wearing granddad-like baggy trousers*.
I'm determined to get these acceptable from a distance (probably from the next room) and use them for something - draught animals perhaps with docked tails, which would otherwise get stuck in traces etc. (Sorry, just thinking out loud.)
In the meantime I've been in contact with Rod Campbell at Highlander Studios and he's been kind enough to do a bulk deal on his gashants. Salt of the Earth, that man! I imagine I'll still have plenty clipping and filing to get the Black Hat riders to fit, but it will save me going through industrial quantities of green stuff. And it's something to look forward to after my holidays.
Oh well, ever onwards and gashantwards!
