  1. "Old Made New" This is for those of you who need inspiration (as usual) to pull some of those ancient pieces from your collection and give them a new life. Post the following: A Before Shot of the mini. Whatever it had for a paint job before it went for a dip. (Optional) Post a mid-point shot. Right after coming out or perhaps another day in solitary. Or a mid cleaning process shot. Paint specs everywhere. An After Shot of the mini. The clean and ready for paint shot. I'll start this off. This is my original Tom Meier Blue Dragon (DG3). I bought this mini at a hobby shop here in Seneca Falls, NY after riding my bicycle from Waterloo to Seneca Falls (3.8 miles) when I was 12 to buy my first miniature. It was in a blister pack and came with DragonScale Wax that you could rub into it to make it blue. Which I originally did. Sorry no photo of that. Here is a photo of the original packaging I found online: The stamp on the bottom of the mini says Meier on it so I know it's not the re-release under Ral Partha and now Iron Wind Metals. On to the BEFORE shot: Now that's been sitting on a shelf somewhere wherever I've lived since it's last "repaint" somewhere back in the early 90s. The base was a piece of wood my grandfather gave me to use, that I sanded down and glued him to. I think I used plastic cement glue. Oh, and that's Testors paints. Which was pretty much all that was available around here back in the day. I did acquire a few Polly S paints but not that cyan blue or bright yellow. Now here's an IN BETWEEN shot ... freshly pulled from the Simple Green after two days: Pretty gruesome. I don't know how well Testors enamel paints come off in Simple Green but it did have the DragonScale Wax previously and might account for his ... uh ... "condition." Finally, the cleaned up AFTER shot: So there you have it. The journey of a dragon from my youth through to today. Stay tuned for his WIP and Enjoy. GET MOTIVATED!
