  1. Spirit Levels!!!

    Cheers Alex, although I'm thinking more along the lines of that one but with bluetooth or something which can be read inside the tractor on a smartphone or tablet.
  2. Spirit Levels!!!

    He needs the vertical in two axis unfortunately otherwise you're right.
  3. Spirit Levels!!!

    Hey folks, just a quick one (said the vicar etc...) Has anybody ever used or heard of a spirit level, preferably for fence posts, which could be attached to the post (obviously) but be read inside the cab of a tractor for example? Seems a simple thing but has anybody ever actually used one before?

    Great cutting work!
  5. Are TV ads reaching new lows?

    ....."removes the appearance of wrinkles...." Does a razor remove the appearance of a beard?
  6. HMS Queen Elizabeth Sea Trials

    I see traffic on the bridge. Wasn't there meant to be road closures as she sailed underneath? you know, for security reasons?
  7. Are TV ads reaching new lows?

    As mentioned, one of those slowed down classic songs, this time an instrumental of "Mad World" by Tears for Fears. We're in a hospital ward. Everything is in slow motion. Nurses are changing beds, and there's a new mother being handed her new baby, yet THERE'S A BLACK HORSE RUNNING AMOK THROUGH IT ALL!!!! AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!! Next scene, a "fashionable" gay fella proposing to another fella and yes, the horse is still running past in slow motion!!!! Funeral, school, nope, it doesn't matter where, there's that horse. Then the advert has the cheek to go on and say, the first thing spoken on the ad, "This is real life." I would like to think horses running through hospitals was not real life thankyouverymuch!
  8. Are TV ads reaching new lows?

    Just because your bus can't get past a spilt cart of oranges, would you, as a young, pretty, Audrey Hepburn lookalike, that can't stop blinking, get off the bus and accept a lift from a strange bloke?? What's that teaching our young females!! AND, never mind that, she even STEALS the bus driver's hat!!!! Johnny Depp, with two black eyes, has a brain fart and drives (recklessly) into the desert, past one of those big American hairy cow things, digs a hole and puts his jewellery into it. Now, for anybody who hasn't seen this ad, can you even begin to guess what it's for??? I still don't know myself!!! And what's it with female sanitary products and X-treme sports???? Can you not just wear them and do normal stuff??? (I don't know, I'm a bloke) You're washing yourself in the middle of some tropical paradise, would you pull out a bottle of chemicals (shampoo) and wash your hair, thus polluting such an untouched, beautiful part of nature??? Have you even thought this through??? AND, never mind that, she's screaming in pleasure whilst doing it!! Either said chemicals are burning her head, or the shampoo bottle is a particular shape.... There, I've brought on one of my heads again.

    As somebody mentioned, Trivago. Notice how the woman mostly stands with one knee bent? Is one of her legs longer than the other?? Any perfume or aftershave ad, a Hollywood blockbuster in 30 secs with absolutely no meaning or comprehension whatsoever. Girls riding motorbikes with flames, some bloke doing a moody press conference inside a room made of 4 big sheets of cardboard, etc.... M&Ms. Bloke comes home to find his wife in bed with an M&M sweet. Isn't sweets meant to be for kids? So kid's are being introduced to adultery? What?? Happy egg company. "I've got a good idea for an ad, everybody about to eat an egg, or put the box on the table, has to dance around awkwardly......" Wee boy want's to make a spaceship out of the Fairy liquid bottle, (notice it's not a rocket ship anymore as the bottle is rubbish-shaped now), but the Fairy will take ages to use up. Tell you what kid, it's only a flippin empty bottle, I'm sure if you hoke through the bins you'll find another odd-shapped item to make a flippin spaceship out of!!!!! That dishwasher tablet ad where the wee boy dressed as Sherlock Holmes finds some dirt on the glass dish. When it comes out clean afterwards his ma shows him it and he says "bo-ring" Have you ever wanted to punch the wee fella in the face so much??? I'll show you bo-ring kid, why don't you effin do the dishes instead of f@rting around getting BORED!!! Mr Muscle. When it was a UK made ad, he was a wee weedy bloke, but then the Germans or whoever took over and they seem to like big animated butch blokes. Same happened with the Aquafresh toothpaste man and Captain Birdseye, til someone wised up on the latter and we got the salty sea Captain back. Is Mr Muscle and Aquafresh man the same person??? How many toothpaste ads have to get the line in "my dentist recommended"???? ALL OF THEM!!!!! Just because a dentist isn't allowed to advertise one paste above another, it's suddenly happening in the third person!!!! Has no toothpaste manufacturer any different ideas??? A Nissan Juke driving along the pages of a giant book.... WTF were the writers on!!!!! Why would I want to buy a Juke cos of that???? I have to lie down for a bit......
  10. Stunning, and an enjoyable WiP to follow. Just wait til Airfix release the 1/24 scale Wasp, still won't be half as detailed as this...
  11. I know! And my popcorn's all stale now.
  12. 1/72 Bristol Sycamore

    Wonderful masterclass on how to sphereoidize your knob ends Nigel!! I'll be trying that meself next time.
  13. P-8 Doesn`t meet RAF Specifications!!

    Mrs Hovis won't eat anything with palm oil in it, they make Orang-utans homeless in the collection of it apparently....
