  1. Hello everyone, It was tricky, but I made it. Back in the U.K.. Attended the infected blood hearings in October. Persuaded SingaporeAir not to charge me £600 to bring a wheelchair over. Managed to pick up the by now ancient Volvo 940 Estate, get it through the MOT, taxed, tested. Insurance was a monumental faff. One that matched the rather Nordic long story telling name of the company I used. Now settled in a nice spot in Dunoon. A little bird told me that @Scimitar may live here too. I’m not sure if there are any other Scot or adopted Scot Britmo

  2. Thank you for the kind messages back in August. You’re a great bunch and BM is superb. Thank you Mike. Absolutely the best community on the Internet. Two months have flown by. Another short stay in hospital. Then my wife and stepdaughter did amazing work packing books for study, inspiration, to help my own writing, masses of medication. Clearance letters for vast quantities of very valuable clotting medication arrived just 3 days prior to departure. a380’s on the two Long hauls. Perhaps the civil aviation modellers and staff here can tell me why the older A380 was f

  4. and many more. I have missed you all a lot. Just been too ‘crook’ as they say in that land now far away, to be of any use at all. I’m trying to catch up with Jerzy-Wojtchek but feel he may have changed his moniker. Hello @Mike and those that make this great place work. I will now have a little look at all the great builds that I have missed. Its lovely to be back in the U.K.. Just wonderful to be in Scotland too. Just miss the wife. We do get very, very attached to them as we get older don’t we? All the best and I would have mentioned everyone that I have missed, but m

  13. Today was a painful day..... I had to stand at the till try to calm an angry customer down, while the beautiful sound of a griffon engine roared over the store. It’s was the Mk XIX doing its fly over of the Hereford hospital..... the urge to just leg it outside like a 5 year old was, almost, completely overwhelming.... only my need to keep my job stopped me. I then worked out it would have flown right over my house (confirmed later by the girlfriend ‘yeah something really noisy went right over us’)..... today will go down as a bad day.

  19. The longer that I stay away, the harder it is for me to come back. I blame that Seafire kit. It put me off all modelling completely (again). Still, I was warned in advance by wiser heads, so I only have myself to blame.

  26. Feeling pretty good this morning as I've just had an uninterrupted night's sleep for the first time in a very long time. Phase 1 physio on my shoulder done and my right arm is starting to function as designed. Today I shall mostly be sorting out all the part-builds I have to get a few 'easy wins' selected. Then the real rehabilitation will start......

  28. If you pay attention to the lyrics of Metal Machine, you'll notice these are references to many songs but the ones from Iron Maiden hits comme first. Plastic first, Metal second... or is it the opposite? Don't ask me to choose.

  29. If anyone is interested in navy subjects, anything that’s been part of or under command of a navy please pop a long to the GB chat and have a look at ‘in the navy GB’ I would be very happy if it got into the the vote. (this is not canvassing for votes just trying to see if there’s enough interest to get it to the voting stage )

  30. Hello friends It has been some time. I hope that you are all well, or at the very least getting along fairly tolerably well. I have missed you all. I think maybe most of my followers/friends here know that my recent almost annual attempts to get back into modelling, into regular posts, have not worked. Short spell of normality: silence. The Internet is a place where one’s data and words are harvested and used in the strangest and most mystical ways, therefore I was previously reluctant to explain a lot. However, now a person involved in wh

  31. Hi all, had some fun yesterday, when they pinched my satchel from the vehicle in the sleepy little village of Chiredzi, where I have been shopping every few weeks for thirty years... The times they are a'changing, as that has been unheard of before. Beside a lot of money, passport, driving licence, bank cards, etc, the b..tards pinched my cell phone... So I am a serious problem for taking photos of builds' progress... I will have to keep building my kits quietly until such time I can borrow the fancy camera of SWMBO. As I got her charity's money pinched, that may take

  32. A postal workers strike, most likely lasting at least two weeks, began today and truly messes things up for Finnish modellers. I have a lot of stuff on its way but don´t know when I´ll get in this case...
