John, will Mr Jones be done by Sept this year? I'll be crossing the pond then (current plan is 4 days on the Island. London to Manchester & points in between before crossing ditch & 5 days in France, Belgium, & Frankfort) and would like to see his work. The chapel looked well done. PaulE

Hi John

This has come a long way and painting means the end is in sight thumbs up You will enjoy it all the more for having done it all yourself.

Greetings from the other world of 1/1. but firstly a few words to my "crew "

Paul...... He's nor turned up sad, so had to a white version.laugh

Keith...... Thanks , I've been informed by the clerk of works that there are several small bits that need a touch up.I don't bother to look as I know the clerk will spot them.

Jim...... Yes that's right, looking fwd to the final move back in soon.

Right just to clear up some rumors put about by a couple of unsavory characters from the Western approaches that I was idling my time away sleeping, teethsmile dface 20 for your edification I give you .img_1059.jpg

Ply with a white dragged finish display and book case units. Still have to be fitted and have a pine liping in the fronts,The shelves are on a multi hole system, this way I can lift the rear of the shelf up , the liping on the side holds the shelve on and a front lip the model.

Across the other side is ..............................................................................


a plate rack I made for Management, now going to house my small collection of advertising tins. The rewire is done.Loads of sockets and new led lighting. Back in the workshop is the paint unit along with a materials for dios etc. They will be sanded tomorrow, painted and finished with an acrylic sealer, then assembled. Light at the end of the tunnel.

Might just get that plane doneteeth 2

Thanks for looking in, abuse most welcome, anything else is a bonus.nerd

Mr Race

A bookcase! I didnt know you could read. Are there no end to your talents?laugh Should you not be concentrating on building a bench? You could always build the plane on the floor. fist As for the paint unit, once sanded dont forget to add an oil filter, do a pin wash to make the nails stand out, do some rust streaks, a layer of dust along the top, some oil and stain marks and seal with a matt varnishyes. Happy constructing

Hi John

All looking very nice indeed and I'll bet you can hardly wait for the day when you are sat at your bench, in a clean, tidy organised room with a nice cup of tea, a plate of choccie biccies and a box of plastic in front of you.

Steve's post gave me a good laugh thumbs up

Hey John,

Looking real good buddy. One can see the hard work you've done and the time invested, to me, was very well spent. A real looker I must say and the shelving should hold enough Moggelling projects.....It does look like the supperware containers on the top shelf do look in danger of falling off. Might want to turn them sideways.......

Don't worry about Steve....He's just been sniffing too much of the TET again! Seems to happen mostly on Sundays when he runs out of beer and has to work on Monday....Poor Fella....We all know damn well you can read too!!!.......

Abuse Eh?!!....... INCOMING fist,

.....Where to startface 22?!!.....

OK then,THAT DISPLAY CASE ....... awe c`mon John,you`d have to live `til you`re about 150 to fill that with completed models matesmile o, although that DOES depend if you`re easily distracted from an,"Almost finished" one,to a,"What shall i start next"...... and the WIP list increases.....AGAIN embarrassedface 20!!

Next...... THE BOOK CASE .....Well,despite your undoubted knowledge,you`ve fallen for a basic modelling error,if i may say so....... NO point at all mate...... it don`t matter HOW MANY BOOKS you have...... your first thought will be...."Google it","Interweb it",or post on Milmod".....THEN,if nothing is revealed,the penny dropsidea,and,"Oh,I could see if one of my Many,MANY books has somethingnerd?!!.....It happens to us ALL Sir!!face 20face 20face 20

On the positive side,OH MY GOD,I`m SOOOO JEALOUS OF THAT WORKSPACE surprise,looks fantastic,well done that manthumbs up......... Just a shame it ain`t in Devon Eh?!!


Andy,Rach,and of course........ Mort dog

P.S. Allen,it`d be Cider,not Beer mate,and believe me,we NEVER run out of that in this part of the worldface 20thumbs up
