Vouture nouvelle pour Le General

Now that I have pretty much completed the Forbodian Army, I clearly need another Funny Little Wars army. When I get round to building it, this will be the French-style 'Army Horizon Blue' from the well known West European country of Fromagia.  So far all I have managed to complete is a staff car for the general (Le Grande Fromage...)  This car, a 1907 Renault, is an old (really old) Revell kit and I think it looks rather imposing.  I decided to finish it in a pale grey - roughly the same as most French kit of the period.  As can be seen, I was unable to resist painting the 'bling' fittings in an appropriate brass colour.
I need hardly add that since completing this model I have been distracted by an entirely different FLW project...
The completed Renault - the 1cm grid on my cutting mat give a good idea of it's size.
The beast under construction.  For such an old kit it went together easily enough.
The General's driver - 'Crazy Claude'

Very Nice. Looks perfect for the job. It would also look good painted in Drakonian midnight blue. Perhaps Crown Prince Orloff will take a sight seeing tour your capital in this car. He is looking forward to visiting the Palace de Camembert and seeing the Awful tower.

I think we'd better have an army before bothering with any commemorative architecture!

I don't think Crazy Claude would be as happy with a Clio!
