I kicked off this project sometime ago and it has languished for over a year. Although I did put on the Battle of Plattville at Triples in May using my 40mm Prince August figures.
The recent passing of Donald Featherstone is something that I want to mark by celebrating his contribution to this great hobby.
I met Don twice. The first time was circa 1970 when my father took me to Dons house. I remember going but nothing about the conversation we had. The second time was about a decade ago at Historicon.
I have decided that that my stalled Plattvile project needs to re started and that it would be my celebration to Don.
I have now finished my second unit of metal Spencer Smith figures. They are Gloss varnished and un based.
I have also started gathering extra bits and pieces. Firstly I have managed to get 260 original plastic Spencer Smith figures. This cost a bit but are just right for my project. The first unit is on the painting table.
I have also got two packs of Merit plastic trees to use for Platts wood. And the search for a rubber Triang church is underway.
