  1. We did same not far away in Purbeck. A cracking day. Also quite spooky that on return I did a massive tidy of my hobby room (man cave coming later after garage conversion), and it had the net effect of bringing back some of my lost mojo of late. Love the micromaster stuff, and those hatches look the biz. Terry
  2. Impressive 3D work Ralph. I'm currently working my way through some Blender tutorials, and latterly Fusion. Fusion is definitely my favoured software. but even though I have worked in IT most of my life, these software tools are a whole different world to what I have been used to. That said things are starting to make sense. Most impressed with what you have done. Terry
  3. I'm liking the bronze green a lot. One of mine is a pre-war in bronze green. Your shade looks spot on. Terry
  4. Phew! I got in on page 1, must be doing something right. Excellent choice of subject John, and I promise I won't go on about preferring the Cold War scheme! Seriously though, that commemorative scheme really will look superb on a modern warship in this scale. Judging by your last build, we are in for quite a treat. Terry
  5. Missed this one from the start Beefy, but have just had a catch up from the beginning. Lovely subject, and your usual exquisite work. Very glad to hear Mrs Beefy is OK. Seem to have lost my modelling mojo lately, since before Xmas, but I'm sure it will return, especially when I look at threads like this one! Terry
  6. My periodic overdue catch up Giorgio. What can i say but wow. Superb work, and I do love the attention you are giving that Jumo! A bit of a masterclass going on here. Terry
  7. So that's why I found my Day Skipper Course so challenging. I thought it was about the evening drinking! Fantastic work here Kev (as usual of course). It's like watching a miniature expert shipwright at work.............. with the occasional input, from a submariner. of course Terry
  8. Mrs Martian must indeed be praised on her photography skills of course, which have enabled us to view your deft and somewhat awesome modelling skills (yet again). You certainly seem to be "back in the groove" as far as modelling skills my friend. And that is very heartening! Terry
  9. I recently discovered a very tiny piece of etched brass (a three rung section of 1/700 ladder) inside the open cockpit of my 1/72 Sedbergh which sits on the top shelf of the display shelves in my hobby room. I had lost it early last year when working on a small 1/700 ship. My Carpet Monster is clearly very devious! Terry
  10. The sound of Avon's ............. certainly not silent!
  11. Great to see a real space rocket thread from you Martian, I do recall we talked a lot about such things when we last spoke on the phone. It's good to see some good old fashioned modelling from you again, and look at this thread, page 3 already. What newspaper was it that used page 3 for the more interesting news......? Terry
  12. Oh I wouldn't say that. Most of us have only driven along the A487, and I wouldn't mind betting you have done it in some style, just a bit higher....... And then there are those two Hawks I seem to recall ............ do I, or was that a dream I had? Terry
  13. Steady on CC, if Tony were to misread that for 1/48 Myasishchev M-4 Bison, you could be looking at a serious cost there! Terry
  14. So it's kind of like cosmic ray superglue, yes? Seriously Tony, I am so very impressed with this. Terry
  15. Patience grasshopper....... Great milestone Crisp. Terry
  16. Ah, I see. Hadn't figured it might be a ships crest! Thanks for the explanation. A very smart looking class of ships I must say. My other question is slightly different to Edward's ...... how much did you miss the flying when you took command of the ship? Terry
  17. The round-down underside view looks very impressive. The badge on the wall intrigues me. The closest I can see it might be would be for 857 squadron, but those I can see show a fist holding a dagger shape, and that looks more like a cutlass? Terry
  18. Yes thanks, I did wonder about that, and on closer inspection I can see it is Triumph, with all that gubbins on the deck to the rear of the island. Terry
  19. Great shot indeed. I get about 8 Frigates/Destroyers, an Aircraft Carrier and a couple of support vessels. I've ploughed many times across those Medway bridges as a boy, visiting my oldest sister and her Naval hubby. Terry
  20. An all embracing WOW from me! Proper job. Terry
  21. I agree with Beefy, superb work here. Love the attention to detail. Terry
  22. Just found this amazing build Ian. Beautiful work so far. Will follow along now! Terry
  23. Pleased to see in that first picture above, the beginnings of ARK .......! I don't think I saw that before this point? Terry
