Hi John

Looks very useful and all those 5* reviewers thought the same. The 3.5x may be a step too far but I reckon the 2x or the 2.5x will be used the most. Is that black thing in the second picture a head band? If it is and replaces the ear piece arms it should be more comfortable for wearing for a long time and then it can't slip forward if you are bent over.

Those certainly look like a good investment mate, any extra help looking at these little things we choose to do can only be a good thing cool thumbs up. Knowing your passion for a bit of Russian Green, thought you might enjoy seeing this You Tube video. " Plasmo models, Diorama Berlin Street in 1/72nd scale " . if you check it out, also look through his other stuff, this young fella is a top modeler.

So that's why your Stugs look so beaten up - you couldnt see what you were doing!laugh

I brought my optimiser a year ago and it opened up a whole new world to me. Glad they have made a difference

Permission to carry onwink

Steve you are not wrongteeth 2

Yes sorry i'm back , not finished yetsad

Although I do have the table mtd optivisor with a 1.75 lens Its just not enough for really fine work , like figures. Using the new glasses type is good, but the problem is the lens presses into my eye patch and results that after an hr I ve had enough.

Jim was right in his presumption that the 3.5 lens might be a step to far. Great but, oh its over the top, much better is the x 2 and the x 2.5 Just about right. I've removed the side and fitted the strap, easy to do and a decent strap, not too thin.

I made a new wet palette so that the Vallejo would not dry out over night or while using . I first painted the black webbing on the figures, thinking I could clean up with a 000 Series 7 after I had done most of the uniform colour, well it's worked in a fashion, unfortunately in one respect I have the figures sent by Peter , I say unfortunately because I just think I've done a neatish job and then look at the Masters. Deep gloom , but on the good side It's giving me the chance to look closely how Peter achieves such a perfect finish and is making me try. Here so you can all fall about face 20face 20surprise in laughter I give you 4 drunks.

WARNING those of a nervous deposition, highly strung or other wise should refrain from enlarging the following photos .



Just as well the photos are c****p as well .

I shall continue tomorrow afternoon.

Comments or advice to take up some other hobby more than welcome teeth 2

Thanks as always for lookinh in .
