  2. Ok. Erm. A lot happened. 34,000 km. Starvation. I went a bit bonkers; 129 continuous days alone. I ended up on the ABC National news as the second news story at peak time on a Saturday at 7pm on the 7/11. Any numerologists out there? it was the first time that I had seen my wife in 7 Months. Way before and during, @JOCKNEYliterally helped keep me alive as always has @AlexNand treated my very stressed and overwhelmed wife like the 15/16 Scottish Princess she is. I think that he may not be here; I was dreadfully torn as a friend that I care about a lot; a better friend, I assure you, a person like me could not imagine, had popped over onto another forum. I had and still have mental health issues. I am Compus Mentis. Not the hardwiring, the data. Some stuff needs filing away or to be deleted; taking up too much space on the hard drive. We must start talking about this fella me lads; the ladies are often better at it than us. I tried to hide my weaknesses and pride led to a big fall. Anyway, sadly I can’t promise anything apart from; give the forum masses of publicity as other media sources, on your island, well I don’t know yet. However, Mike may not wish for that, it could create too many hits and we don’t want server meltdown. Not blowing the trumpet here. I’m ashamed by the 2 and a half minute piece. I had been advised to make it about me, but I don’t like doing that; so I just really don’t like it. Now 22 Million people know me as the bloke that arrived in a wheelchair, sounds like a Pom and laid in his own for three weeks . Being recognised in public (and hospital) for this, is not fun. I was 129 continuous days in agony, haemorrhaging, liver playing an unfair game and starving in the end. Lost about 4 stones; 124 kg. I’m out a bit there because I’m still a bit out of it here, now back in Australia. Modelling wise; I’m in need of the help of you people to help get me going again. It’s thanks to @Mike that I am alive. That my stepkids have had a Stepdad and still do. That my wife was able to see the home of her ancestors. You should have seen her smile. You must know how good it feels when you just know that the love of your life is happy? Really happy? Model making, learning how to write again, use computers again, even commmunicate, take photos;,This forum honestly saved my life. The fact that some rifts have happened whilst I was sick; it was awkward as the bloke in the other place; a whole load there saved my life too. What an awful few years it has been for so many; and now Covid-19 has thrown everything, even my marriage, into touch. Alone, in the bath, looking for my old mates; see if I can learn from you again to get on my Own Two Feet and get model making; give back. I have missed my mates here. Very concerned that you’re all safe. TonyTiger66 I can email a link to @Mike of the video, phone going flat in the bath too hot today cold water . Love and peace and all that xx

  3. I've just made an introductory video for my new YouTube channel 'Badder's Good Diorama Tips'. Click on the link provided if you want to hear my thick west-country accent. Don't expect a 'studio-quality' vid, or even a hobby-room vid, this is pure mess lol. But hopefully it's entertaining. Comments welcomed. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5jioZlljQPHY05QzTQ2zMA

Well yesterday brought a surprise,I picked up Revell's 1/32 Spitfire MklX for a snip on e-bay at £20 posted,it arrived yesterday in a suspiciously large box which only contained the Technik version of the kit! I 've mailed the company explaining the fact they've sent me a kit they advertise at a £100 more and await a reply!

  7. WV908, I can cast you a set of lower wings as that is all you will need, since , I reprofiled them, they will fit the upper ones as before. The leading edge extension, I have not got round to, just yet, that will come at a later date when I work out how to design it. At the moment, have no materials, as suppliers are running slow, I have been waiting for months now, so I will probably not see anything until winter, I have been told. Alan

  8. Hello Joseph, I sent you an email but may be you didn't receive it. I was just checking to see how things are with you. Nothing much happening at the moment, there is still a shortage of materials and suppliers are only just starting up production, so there is a long delay in the pipeline. Apart from that, it's a little quiet. Alan

  12. Hello, I changed my ANZAC group build subject to No. 457 Sqn. RAAF A58-465 ZP*H. I'm going to continue on with the same post, I've changed the title and content. I'm hoping this subject will be better suited for the build. Thank You Moe
