  1. Not warp factor two
  2. I guess it won't be long before we have to rummage around in the loft for the Christmas decorations. Better get the Flower down while I'm at it.... IanJ
  3. Is it still called a Blep when a dog does it? Our Border Collie pup does it all the time... IanJ
  4. Look! New word invented! (Just Googled "dogjazzle" and nothing came up...)
  5. Terrorising the local population
  6. all voting for Christmas
  7. Not started yet - Just wondering if a little head start would be acceptable? IanJ
  8. I did mention that I had the kit and suggested that someone choosing to build it might be a bit mad to do so, but if someone can tell me what would constitute a 25% start beforehand I could go for it. And no, I have no idea where it's going once built... IanJ
  9. Happy it got through too. Simple choice for me, Revell Firefly Vc (Ex Matchbox), one Airfix M4 Sherman/LCT combo (Possibly corrected so the turret is the right size at least) and two Airfix Lee/Grants (Building one of each) all in 1/76th scale. IanJ
  10. @nick - Thanks for sharing those photo's, The Warhorse is a spectacular piece of work. Is it me, or did the slips on some of the judged comp entries actually say "Commeded"?.... IanJ
  11. Did the Saturday with my dad and my mate Ed, we thoroughly enjoyed it - Obviously not as big as previous shows but appreciated the extra space, didn't see many major bargains but came away with a stack of OOB Airfix and Revell 1/76th military vehicles so at least saved on eBay prices and postage. Lost dad for half an hour when he went "Upriver*" - tried looking for him as he wasn't answering his phone but he eventually turned up. Saw @Martian motoring around the competition area (to be honest, if you didn't notice him your mind had obviously decided that it was "Somebody else's problem" and airbrushed the view from your sight) but didn't have a chance to say hello for 2 reasons... 1) Dad was missing and 2) I remembered that I was probably going to be blurglecruncheoned if our paths crossed. Thanks to IPMS for getting things organised. IanJ * - Going "Upriver" in this case was not as bad as his all time record. He waited for 3 days after landing at his destination to let me know that he'd got there, "there" being Hong Kong....
  12. I was then reminded of this version of the above joke.... A guy went into a French seafood restaurant and asked to see the dishes of the day. The waiter wheeled over a trolley with a large tank full of various species, and the man examined the dishes. "I'll have the little green squid with the hairy lip, please" said the man. "An excellent choice, they have a delicate, mild flavour." replied the waiter and called out "Gervais!" A little French chef appeared with a large knife, the waiter instructed the chef to kill the little green squid with the hairy lip. Gervais was just about to slice at the poor squid when he noticed a tear running down its face. Gervais is touched, and admitted that he hadn't the heart to kill the squid. "Not to worry" says the waiter, and called out "Hans!!" at which an enormous German bloke came out of the kitchen. "Sir", said the waiter, "This is Hans, the dishwasher. Hans kill that little green squid with the hairy lip!" The dishwasher wielded a huge rolling pin and was just about to bludgeon the little green squid with the hairy lip when it cringed back and gave a little cry. "I am sorry sir, I just cannot kill the squid" Hans admitted, his lower lip trembling. "Well sir," said the waiter, "it just shows...... That Hans that do dishes, can be soft as Gervais, with mild green, hairy lip squid!"
  13. Once upon a time there lived a German named Hans. Each day, before work, he'd go fishing. Every fish he caught he would smack it on a rock to make sure it was dead. Then he went to work as a health visitor to local schools. His job was to cure teenagers with acne using milk. Hence the song... # Now hans who kills fishes can heal spots on a face with some white cream dairy liquid !!#
  14. It smells of victory
  15. Adding to the general rubbishness of the Bismarck docudisappointment was a piece of archive film, ostensibly of the Home Fleet but in reality showing the two most distinctive aircraft carriers of that era. That's right - The Lexington and Saratoga.... IanJ

    Seems to be a pattern here- Spurs (UK Premier League Soccerball team to our colonial friends) are taking a few "whuppings" here too IanJ
  17. Pricing must be based on what the chancers are wanting on eBay - Sorry, but adding glue, two little pots of paint, a brush and calling it "My First Diorama" do not add up to £12 of "Added Value" IanJ
  18. Huts, old railway huts* (*Medium length joke involving General Custer, native Americans, railway architecture and chocolate)

    If I understand this correctly - Your antennae will be in a buggy whilst you walk alongside? IanJ - Perhaps taking things too literally.
  21. treat with asteroid cream.
