Your Diorama is looking great. Go for the competition, but remember to get your satisfaction from the pleasure it gives you. However hard the organisers try to make competitions fair, they are fickle things and some models are overlooked. We all get drawn to our areas of interest. I'm not very competitive, so tend not to enter, but its a way of showing your excellent model to a wider audience. I wish you success, but go with an open mind.

Excellent!! People get really surprised when you pull a diorama out of your pocket!

Hopefully you've caught the bug and will do more. There is a lot of potential at this tiny scale.

With that slogan on the side I'd be relieved that it was facing away from me as I passed by!!!

What's the frame on the front for?

How many vehicles and tanks do you have (roughly?) Do you have them stored in some sort of order? I see you reusing your baseboards, so they must go somewhere. You must have a huge collection! You have so many variations of many, many vehicles.

Great revetments and A frames. They'll be keeping their feet dry in this bit of trench. I'm enjoying watching this progress. What wood have you used? - Balsa? (I find it works well for me.)

You still amaze me at how quickly and precisely you paint!! Lovely work!

I'd hate to try to fire a musket on horseback! - I'd end up on the ground for sure!!

(Yorkshire and Lake District were great thanks - reasonable/good weather and the family all got on well together. I hope that your 2nd try at a holiday with your 'young lady' went well?)

Thread: Long live the model shop!
16/08/2017 22:27:33

I was in York last week and was delighted to find a thriving model shop - Monk Bar Model Shop. I spent a good while of pleasure looking round and bought some scenic supplies. I've not been in a shop like this for many, many years so it was a real pleasure to experience one again.They sell all types of models. The staff are pleasant, helpfull guys and I wish them success with their shop which opened in 1963. They have a website too, so you don't have to go there in person.

I too hope that your dad improves and that work calms for you to entertain us further. I've been away but for better reasons - holiday. Keep it coming when you can!

Thread: Pilots first flight and first love (BiplaneGB17)
16/08/2017 13:39:02

Coming on very nicely Richard.

I had a flight in one of these a few years back as my 50th birthday present. It flies from Redhill Airport (Surrey) at weekends over my house during the summer. It was wonderful to be up there, in the open flying over my house and I even got to take control for a few minutes! The guy thought I'd done it before, because I moved her very gently. I just knew they are very responsive. I'm sure he grabs his stick with both hands if he offers the chance of taking control!!

Jim, Mike and Karl,

Thanks for your encouragement. I've been in the Lake District (very beautiful and mostly sunshine for us!) with my wife, grown up children and their partners for a week and a half, so haven't looked in. I've got lots of catching up to do and my eye is twitching, just trying to do the day job. I'll get back to this when I have the energy!

Lovely dragoon! and I'm sure you'll treat us to another beautiful horse.

I've been away for a couple of weeks, so am catching up, and haven't found how many figures you've painted in that time!?

Your cave looks wonderful - I'm envious!

I've not been given permission from CinC for my own space at home yet, despite having 3 spare bedrooms. Nearly all my work is done at work (in lunchtimes!) I do have a cabinet in the lounge at home though. Thankfully before my children left home they supported me to have that and it sits next to a settee, so wifey can sit there with it behind her and not having to look at it. When I retire, I'll push for my own space!

You've made a fabulous job of your cave!

Kevin, Thanks.

We get many models back at work which need alteration, so I've done many a scary procedure over the years. You usually get away with it, but you hold your breath and pray!!

Scottie, Peter, Paul and Keith, Thank you.

I've been preparing my dugout for LEDs today - a bit scary! Prizing the bottom off and then Dremmeling an area of the floor which isn't seen to allow access to behind the side walls. Then drilling through the side walls for cables. The only damage was to the gas curtain, which will need a touch up of paint. Even the butterfly survived - He's on the grass above.

I won't make any progress for a while, as I'm on holiday again for a week and a half. So, Bye for now, Andy
