Hi All,

Still alive and kicking - just not finding much time to mogel at the moment.

For me, there's a host of stuff part on my bench, well at the sides of it at least:

- MiniArt 1/35 MB1500A - top coated, figures need to be started


- Revell 1/72 Fairey Swordfish (for the bi-plane GB - yeh, right that never happened) - started (devoid of cockpit detail, so trying to improve that shortcoming)


- Revell 1/48 Tornado - most painting done, just need to finish it!!


- Trumpeter 1/35 Zil - built, just need to start painting (thinking post military service!!)

- Tamiya 1/35 Quad and 25pdr - built, painting started, figures need to be progressed


- Dragon 1/35 Sd.Kfz 250/9 - base coated you know what's next

- Airfix 1/72 sea King (old tooling) - started, but that has languished

I think that's it, sadly..........

BUT I am going to try to find time over coming weekends to either "start something else" OR "work on at least one of the above" blushthinking

Sorry Graeme....I couldn’t find it in amongst the rest of the his pit he passes off for a bedroomface 20 if it ever resurfaces I’ll snap a picthumbs up got some nice stuff on the go, the Miniart MB1500A looks good, how was the kit quality? Gotta finish that and post up some pics....pleasebeer

I try not to have more than two builds on the go...if one stalls I can flit across to the other. Currently building the HB Vk1601 but waiting for a A/m tow cable so pulled this small scale out


Apart from being small, it’s been a good build. Some sinkage and a couple of ejection marks but next to no flash.

Skeletons out, Graeme,

Lately I've been building planes though that's not my number one passion...they're dios and have a few on the go if I get off planes...

Part of David & Goliath




...and the Tiger that goes with it...


Then there's the Middle East dio...

...and the Marines are still fighting on Pelelliu...


This one is still finding a dio to go in...


This well is threatening to dry up if I don't hurry up...


This ugly tank is waiting to turn into a swan...


This cutie needs clothing and a home on a base...


This needs an old folks home...


...and so do the others in moth ball...

All these have been obstructed by this...which needs a change of clothing to the right fabrique...


And I have to find my strings for this and a dose of laxative...


ok...1, 2, 3...Hummmm


And a civilian that cannot be shown here teeth 2


I can pick any to continue as long as there are no other tempting kits staring at me from the stash.face it's eenee meenee minee mo. It's a matter of time and mojo I presume...just have to stick at it.

Si, I seem to remember I had a bedroom like that many years ago...face 20

Good Afternoon Fellow Rehab Members,

It's good to see some more folks admitting they have a problem and have joined this self help group. Ed, that isn't too bad and I think with a few months of work, you could be done. Now Richard needs serious rehab!!! That is a heck of a lot there Sir...Si and John are looking good and not too infected.

As for me, I did make a step forward and actually completed the Biplane GB project. One down, and 20 to go!!! It does feel good though and I think this group is working...Thanks Graeme!


Fellow members, please remember our unofficial motto, 'Don't look in the stash, Don't look in the stash', and repeat till the urge to start something new passes......Enjoy.
