Painting in the Cold
Using primer on a cold day to primer some coast defense artillery.
They turned out pretty well after I repaired the broken wheel crank handles and the damaged personnel railings.
HaT WWI French 75mm gun, prepared for assembly, with a sheet styrene base.
Icicles on the door overhang into the basement. It was really cold. I keep the models and paint inside while I place the models on the tray to paint them. I shake up the can of paint and hurry everything outside. I paint quickly and then take the items back inside right away. This way the cold does not cause any noticeable problems for the painting.
