  1. Trying to like Italeri kits. Honest!

    Seams to me Rick,love them or hate them ... everyone has an italeri kit of one form or another,some good,some bad and some best left unspoken about!๐Ÿ˜ฑ I hate the things personally tried building two Spits and both failed miserably so I told myself what the heck it's all good practice...and promptly went it and picked up another italeri Spit!!! Maybe italeri kits are the drug of the modelling would and we are all addicted!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  2. He's at it again!!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ...I can't afford that much popcorn and need a more comfortable chair...
  3. The big split

    Thanks once again for all your kind words and advice...just a quick update things have settleded into general hatred and mud slinging but nothing that requires legal attention and access to my daughter is not in dispute..I see her whenever I can So onto the modelling front, as I'm sleeping on an airbed on my mother's living room floor any modelling I attempted had to be on something I could pack away as there simply is no room for anything permanent..so I started with a tray on my knee ,which was impractical to say the least..so I've sourced a fold away camping table which is height adjustable...perfect, more room and nice and stable although the surface was far too slippery,so now one half is covered with cutting mats attached with double sided carpet tape..not ideal(any other suggestions?) So room for tools..check, room to work...check,work surface....needs attention Ok obviously difficult to use my airbrush or even use aerosol spray primer so any suggestions or inspiration would be appreciated otherwise I'm back to the hairy sticks๐Ÿ˜ฑ Oh and the model under construction is the R.S Models Lighting P-322-l Cheers chaps

  6. What music are you playing ? Part IV

  7. Zoukei Mura..............I dont get it....

    Personally I have 2 ZM kits (skyraider and Mustang) when I returned to our hobby after a long lay off, the range of kits and manufacturers compared to when I was modelling as a youngster was enormous...I soon decided I wanted to get as many kits from as many different manufacturers in all different price ranges as I could and that's exactly what I have achieved,I now have a range from Revell to ZM so I can pick and choose any level of difficulty wether it be a quick an easy to a 12 month marathon๐Ÿ‘ having said that when I open the ZM box and see the instructions I chicken out and pack it away again..one day I'll pluck up the courage I promise
  8. The big split

    Thank you all so much for your support chaps it means a heck of alot...the modelling will continue, I'm going to look into getting a fold away camping table as a temporary workspace won't be much use for anything above 1/48 but anything is better than nothing!๐Ÿ‘
  9. The big split

    Thank you so much for all your kind words guys it all helps alot..we weren't married and the house is in her name so I have no claim on it even though I have been paying into it for the last 17 years my solicitors advice was take what you can and get out! I can definitely see light ahead...and I need a low fold away table more than a bigger tray!!๐Ÿ˜‚ It's good to be back!๐Ÿ‘
  10. The big split

  12. The big split

    Cheers mate the stash was the first thing I got out of there she was making noises about selling it all so I stored it all at my mum's I'm just starting to figure out how to carry on making kits on a limited basis...not easy to start all that dating malarkey again after 19 years!!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  13. The big split

    Well did you all miss me? ๐Ÿ˜‚ November last year will go down as a terrible chapter in the Crusty ones (formally Crustydude)life... SWMBO announced one morning that our 19 year old relationship was over...totally out of the blue I was to leave her house as soon as possible, I had nowhere to go so stayed in the spare room over Christmas and held out until February the 6th so I could be there for my daughters 6th Birthday then I moved into my mum's flat ...I left with a 12 year old ford focus,my bike(still being paid for),my clothes,DVDs and CDs and my Stash of models and modelling equipment not a lot to show for 19 years ...the day I left she moved her new partner in ..an ex boyfriend of hers who had got back in touch through Facebook turns she had been having an affair with him for 6 months before she threw me out..I'm getting myself sorted little by little it hurts like hell and I have no space to do any modelling either๐Ÿ˜ฑsorry for the rant but better out than in!!
