  1. Any gamers

    What age are we talking about ? Teenage - it's a losing battle. Be prepared to be (incorrectly) reported to Childline, the police, the Pope, and everyone in between as said child tries to claim that you're infringing their human rights while you point out they're obviously being groomed... If not yet a teenager, then there's still time to put in some ground rules like only being allowed to use a computer when parent is present. If they're of school age, try asking the school for advice. It's an increasingly common problem, they will have seen it before. Just my £0.02 ...

  4. What to pick for this group build ? OA-10 Warthog ? Chinese WZ-10 helicoptor ? Something with a £10 price sticker on the box ? No, I'll go for an entry so obscure it doesn't even have a '10' anywhere on the box....

  6. What have you purchased / been gifted

    3/4 of a 4 disk DVD box set.... 🐕 beat me to the post and chewed the other one... everyone's a movie critic....
  7. Retire! Me!

    Lots of useful advice there for us young 'uns ( well, pre-Saga at any rate). If I could travel back in time 20 years the one bit of advice I'd give myself is "'don't put off living until retirement, you might not be as physically able to do all the things you want to when you're older"
  8. Pet hates.

    Oi ! Sky ! NO ! Putting adverts for other programmes OVER THE TOP OF the programme I'm currently watching is NOT ON. Use your own B advertising time to flog your wares instead of ruining what I'm trying to watch....

    I was going to remark on the amount of shelf space required for a 1:48 Vulcan, then saw what you put above it !!
  12. Well, I called the box set and 3 of the aircraft in it right ...... not bad for sheer wanton !! FGR2 takes prize for 'least unexpected announcement'.

    Putting a little bit on at a time seems to be doing the trick... particularly on curved surfaces. Lots done, far too many to go....
  14. Wifi
