The Perils of using an Hair-Dryer!

After happily finding myself the beneficiary of an extra day of paid holiday I thought that I would do my bit for King and Country by drinking the new King’s health,…..several times……and possibly a bit more, just to make sure that I was being suitably festive.

Warlord’s new Sdkfz 250/9 kit is wonderfully detailed and has some relatively fine and delicate details. Unfortunately whilst enjoying some real fantastic real ale and drying the paint on the model with my trusty hair dryer, my relaxed over enthusiastic blasts of hot air (from the hair dryer) melted part of the plastic roof.

Who would imagine that Booze, hairdryers and thin pieces of plastic would not be an advisable modelling mix!

To remedy this minor miniature catastrophe I reached for my trusty clippers and a paper clip and got cutting and bending. I am happy with the on the spot improvised repair and disaster has been averted.

This model is available from Warlord Games: https://store.warlordgames.com/products/sd-kfz-250-alte-half-track-options-for-250-1-250-9-250-11-variants?_pos=1&_sid=06b2ace87&_ss=r&aff=42
