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!

Afternoon John,

What a fantastic space you have created, how envious am I......VERY! Well while you sit in your purpose made den, spare a thought for poor old mr Benson, and his dining table work areacrying.

With your new extravagant, luxurious den ...we expect to see a minimum of one build a month now you knowwink 2

All joking aside, it looks great...enjoy ittea Could you tell me where you got the magnetic tool holding strips that you have on your wall please....would come in handy for organising the shed tools.

A`noon Mr.Race!

Well,i`ve just had a very enjoyable 15 minutes or so,(and believe me,FIFTEEN minutes down in these parts,is FAR longer than in the rest of the planetface 20!!),zooming in and out of each picturenerd.

What can i say John?........ face 22......."What`s with the Robin kit,you`ve tried to hide under the table?smile o". Yeah,a good price,fair enough..... but that just won`t do for a wingy thing build mate,cute as it may be!!

On the other side of things...... That`s one SUPERB workshop you`ve created there,certainly one to be proud ofsmile d,and the amount of equipment you have only suggests one thing........


Knowing you,and your lovely wife Christine as i do,i can only say...... You BOTH deserve your respective areas for your hobbies,it`s a real pleasure to see things work out for QUALITY peopleface 23,

Right then.......Get on with that kit man face 20,


Andy,Rachel,and of course.........MORTdog

Mornin mate

So another day dawns on JR's Dez Rez. The groundwork was done, the chippying was completed, stud work and noggins put up, the walls were plastered, the electrics first and second fix were finished, paintwork painted, red carpet rolled out and dignitaries invited for the grand opening! (I take it my invite was lost in the postsad).

Well it was well woth waiting for you lucky so and solaugh. You do realise we will all have to move in with you so that we can use your facilities.Top bunk for me pleaseface 20

Mr Smith has obviously been round the gaff with a fine tooth comb so need to comment on the finer details. However a small word of advice - when you have finished a bottle of Vodka or Whiskey you can take them to your local bottle bank. This wlll free up more room on your book case mateteeth 2fist

Now down to the serious work of modelling. Have you started yet? Have you completed a model yet? Do you remember how to model? Do you know how to use small tools again? Only time will tellface 20

It's been a joy to watch your cave come together and it could'nt have happened to a nicer chap. Well deserved mate. Have a great day.

PS if you have some extra time and want to do another cave,,just pop on over the pond to the midwest of the USA and I'll be sure to have the supplies ready for you to build out a spot in my house. face 20
