  1. Belated Merry Christmas to all BM members and visitors. Model-making has had to take 2nd seat for a while as a houseg move is on the cards, but we've no idea when, so I don't want to get stuck into a 'long job' and then have to pack it all away!

    But I AM on time to wish everyone a happy and far better year ahead!

    Rearguards,

    Badder

  2. Thought I'd change my avatar and confuse everyone for a while. lol. Artwork was a 'band mascot' called 'Hacker' designed and painted by me for a local heavy metal band back in the late 80's early 90's. He featured on all of their merchandise in many guises over the years. Here was a later appearance, as a 'Jack in the box' for a cassette album cover. Yes of course, he was Eddie's cousin.

  3. Only just noticed, but some days ago, my Ever Evolvin' Dio WIP surpassed 70,000 views. At least 50k of those were me I suspect lol.

  4. 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

  5. Wooooohooooo! 50,000 views for my Ever Evolvin' Dio WIP!

  6. IT'S OKAY, I'M STILL ALIVE, BUT MAYBE NOT KICKING. IF I TRIED KICKING A FOOTBALL NOW, I'D PROBABLY JUST FALL OVER AND MISS IT, AND IF I DID MANAGE TO KICK IT MY KNEES WOULD EXPLODE!

      Hi Clive, and thanks. I won't bore you with the details, but I have had a worsening of my health issues and am probably going to end up medically retired and possibly registered as long-term unfit for work. I'm finding it increasingly hard to walk and I'm afraid it meant that I had to keep postponing my visit to the Tank Museum. In the end I had to admit that I wasn't going to make it. I was very upset about that to be honest, but I did give the ticket to a mate of a mate and he said he made good use of it.

       

       

      I hope all is well you with you,

      Martin.

  7. Hi Enzo,

    Apologies, but I did my usual thing of making it into the gallery for the Tiger GB with just a few minutes to spare. I was going to vote as soon as the poll was open, but I see that it isn't and my entry isn't yet included in the poll. I guess the poll won't start until you activate it and by then my entry will be included in the poll?

    Is that the case? I ask only because I've stayed up well past my beddytime to enter and get the first vote in! hehe.

  8. This week I shall mostly be spelling things incorrectly, and seeing if anyone picks me up on it.

      Ah, but this isn't a post, it's a status. And I thought I'd save the misspelling for my WIPs and comments. Thanks though Adam.

      Rearguards,

      Well done!

  10. It seems I win a 'Gold trophy for most liked content' every October.

    Thanks for all the 'likes' guys.

  11. AT LAST!

    47 PAGES AND 706 PHOTOS REPLACED FOR MY 'EVER EVOLVING DIORAMA' WIP.

     

    IF IMGUR ENDS UP GOING THE WAY OF HOSTINGPICS I DUNNO IF I CAN GO THROUGH ALL THAT AGAIN. WHAT A PAIN!

  12. ONLY 9 PAGES OF THE EVER EVOLVIN' DIO PHOTOS TO REPLACE!

  13. A member for over 2yrs and I've only just figured out how to add a banner to my signature!

    1. Ozzy

      Ozzy

      Well done that man.

  14. 1/5th of the way through replacing Ever Evolving Diorama photos with new host. Boring, boring, boring, tedious, tedious, tedious.....

  15. My ancient Aztec packed up. Hours of dis-assembly, cleaning, soaking, re-assembly, more cleaning, dis-assembly and poking with a stick, I gave up and sat the thing in almost pure bleach for 20mins. Hey presto! It's working again! Thank you Messrs Domestos!

    1. PlaStix

      PlaStix

      Excellent news!!

  16. TIME FOR THE WIFE'S HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE AGAIN!

    Please don't tell my diabetes nurse!

    1. Ozzy

      Ozzy

      If there's any going spare, I will never say no to a slice of cheesecake.

    2. Badder

      Sorry Ozzy, I just ate the last bit with double cream! Nom nom nom.

    3. Ozzy

      Hopefully I'll have better luck next time. :jelly:

  17. Oooh I got another trophy. I will be attempting my first hard-edged 3 colour camo pattern on this one!

  18. 4hr wait to be seen at A&E, despite my symptoms being possibly very serious.

    Came straight home. If I die during the night I won't be happy.

    1. Ozzy

      Ozzy

      Neither will I, you're got to finish your diorama first.

      Hi mate,

      Was a bit of a worry to have a kip, wake up and find a great big red bruise on my face, bleeding beneath the skin about 2inches square. Looked like I had a huge strawberry birthmark. NHS helpline told me to get to A&E within the hour and that they'd be expecting me. Rushed there and got told 4hrs to be seen. Sod that, I went home. I figured if it was something like meningitis or scarlet fever I'd soon know about it and could phone 999. :think:

       

      Anyway, after 12hrs it seems to have faded a bit. I reckon it was a burst blood vessel. Got a cold at moment (I don't usually catch colds) so possibly the coughing, sneezing caused it to burst?

       

      So, looks like I'm not heading for the big diorama in the sky and I'll be continuing with this one!

       

      Cheers,

      Martin.

      I think I would be a little on the worried side to Martin, sounds like you had a dismal weekend.

  19. Dil or Basil? I can't decide which smells better. I mean worse. Or was I right with better?

  20. Went to my LHS store yesterday and absentmindedly walked straight past it. Where is it? I back tracked. No wonder.  Boarded up. Closed down. Owners 'retired' notice in the window. I first went there 40yrs ago, and it's had the same owners all that time. I've been popping in there very regularly now for nearly 2 years. Would have been nice to have had advanced warning.

  21. Wonders if Barrat's Homes could build 5 houses in the time it takes me to make one in 1/35th?

    1. Ozzy

      Ozzy

      I'm hoping Bovis can so I can move in.

  22. 25 quid for a tiny jar of Maluka Honey? You could buy a whole bee for that! 

    1. Ozzy

      Ozzy

      You could probably get more than one for that price.

       

  23. Well done Creative Models Ltd, AGAIN. Less than 24hrs between my ordering and receiving products.

  24. Now, where's that big bag of cotton wool gone?

  25. Ooooh I won a trophy!

    Thanks BM. Could I have it in 1/35th scale? With dirt. And rust. And chipping?:)

      I don`t know...for me is new too. In other fórum. That was, if there were trophies of that style, but here is the first time I see it, and if you do not post it, not that .. maybe it is because of the avalanche (deservedly undoubtedly) of likes I gave you yesterday ... .

      Cheers mate :santa:

      yeah, it was your 25 likes that did it Francis. :D Thanks!
