Dear fellow painters!,

@susofrick It has been a long time since i was active on the hobby but i'm Always watching al the amazing work presented by the fellow members. But sometimes i just lack the inspiration to do something myself. Usually when autumn comes and the weather is getting worse is for me the moment to pick it up again!

Back to this topic, the best football player ever once said : every disadvantage has an advantage (i hope i translate is right in dutch it says: ieder nadeel heeft zijn voordeel.... As perhaps some of you might know i have crohn's disease. and the last couple of days is forced me to stay in house. But it also gave me the time to finish these ffl-figures, So up to the galery they go !!

Don't like those painted up ffl guys...I love 'em. One of my favorite sets when they first came out in the 80s. You have done a really nice job with them.

I hope you make a speedy recovery out of this down phase. But if you are stuck around the house for any more time, perhaps you could paint up the new Strelets ffl set and then we can see them side by side.

I like them as well and it is really nice to see some work from you here again. I have just watched "march or die" once more, so I have the Strelets Figs in my mind as well.

Dear friend,

I am glad to see works from you again.
