Wibble, looking at that detail that you manage makes many of us want to take up style ironing while standing on one leg blind folded !

Wobble, who struggles with attempting to fit a rear light and stupid gab handles .:confused:

Well that's it - I have decided to bin it.....

Decided to have a bit of time off the turret and start on the hull bins... They come from Eduard and are in the usual format of etch brass with lots of folding to do...

So once bent into shape, the etch details are added, the ones above are the smaller front and rear bins.... Here are the long centre bins....

Don't worry Wobble,
Sometime I think threading a needle behind your back is easier..

My goodness Much Olderthanme,

I take it you got your new specs and those bins look fantastic. Nice and cleanly folded Mike. I've run out of complimentary sayings, so I guess we have to go the other way. Cool barrel and a nice SBS on it. Now let's talk about your dribbling part of your lunch on the mantlet and turret side. There gives such things as bibs Buddy and they're cheap too. Keeps the model free from such drool marks. It's all good otherwise...

I wish I could attend the show, but it's too far away and I can't pedal my butt on the bike fast enough to make the ferry in Pas de Calais. With that said, I wish you the best for the comps and please look after John, if he goes. His Mojo appears to be really high lately and I wouldn't want to see him spend all his lawn mowing monies on kits, like we did when we were kids...TIA Mike, and most of all, have a good time!!!...

Good morning Youngerthanme,
Yes, got the new specs, tried them out the other day, driving along and thought let's give them a try... Nearly ran some old boy off the road, could hardly see a thing, then realised it was my reading specs and not the new ones....
I know, it does look like gravy or I missed the pan....
True it is a shame you cannot attend, it would be good to get together and compare pension books, ogle the old ladies on the park bench displaying their passion killers for all to see and poke our zimmer frame legs into the spokes of the young hooligans on their scooters....
Yes I will keep an eye on John, I have borrowed a set of those kiddy reins so that he can wear them and I can control his sudden urges, a wiff of smoke can send him into uncontrolable gleefull trembling... Lawn mowing money - really, I heard he got it from those old ladies in the park to go away and take his mower with him....
Take care and I will try to keep up the standard at the comps..

Prost
Olderthanyou..
