David Greaves – “Long Day in the Saddle”

During this LOCKDOWN we are in, I have been stuck in England,.. and I live in China, so it’s been a real challenge in painting anything since I don’t have an airbrush here,.. so I have had to use rattle cans, primer, base coat and matte varnish. All the other painting has been done with brushes and sponges, getting the effects that I wanted did take some experimentation but I’m pretty happy with the results.

The bike and sidecar is the Italeri 1/9th scale BMW, the figure is from an English company Reedees Miniatures. The BMW is not a great kit, there’s a huge amount of cleaning up to do and gaps that need careful filling but once done it’s good, with plenty of detail.
The figure on the other hand is superb, it’s not easy to find anything in 1/9th scale but this guy makes a small but excellent range of figures and accessories.

The scenery is of course scratch built, just enough to set the scene for the story I’m telling. I’m calling this one ‘Long Day In The Saddle’.


All the best wishes.
