    Horsefly bites?

    It certainly is...

    Thinking of changing paint, need some advice please.

    Very odd. I use Tamiya acrylic and don't have this problem. I don't rub the plastic down with alcohol and sometimes I don't even prime and I haven't experienced the problems you have mentioned. You haven't said if you seal the paint with varnish. If you don't, it may help and you could stick with Tamiya. Also, make sure the paint is well stirred before using it.

    It’s too hot!

    That's because you abandoned the country of your birth and now you are burning in the fires of hell. Karma doesn't mess around you know.

    Grump Britain replacement

    Grumpy again? Is there an alternative?

    It’s too hot!

    It was quite pleasant on the Orkney Islands earlier in the week – we even got some lovely drizzle. Mrs. Gorby's usual 'rain cloud' super-power failed her this time, so our stops at Moffat, Pitlochry, Stirling and even John o' Groats were dry and too hot. Not what you expect when you book a holiday in Scotland – I want my money back! I vote for Iceland next year. 29 degrees at the moment and I'm sitting in front of a fan wearing very little (sorry to foist that image onto you).

    What have you purchased / been given

    Toooooo sweet! (I mean the Glayva, not me).

    What have you purchased / been given

    After my two week world tour of Scotland, I've returned with a liquid stash. I foresee pleasure in my future (although I probably won't remember much of it).

    Airfix 'Bronze' Spitfire

    That sounds like you're accepting responsibility, but delegating the blame. Did your mum ever say, “And if they told you to jump off a cliff would you?” To which the obvious reply is “If you keep going on, don't temp me”. It's fun making comments and someone making it…. Lead Hindenburg? Lard Tiger tank?

    Airfix 'Bronze' Spitfire

    I go on holiday for a couple of weeks and come back to see that you've taken my ramblings about bronze Spitfires seriously. Are you mad man! Mind you it looks better than those church bells you melted down. (You might need to quadruple the length of the runway though).

    Hot weather, why not give ourselves a present

    That's Mrs Gorby's influence that is. I'll PM you the address to send the cheque.

    Best boot sale or other bargain model?

    I'd rather give £3 to charity rather than £1 to the Daily Hate Mail. Well done.

    Show us your modelling space / stash

    That place looks fantastic @Pete in Lincs , although personally I'd put the gargoyle (shown on the last photo) in the garden to scare the neighbors cats. Your 'angry toddler' avatar does look like a young you.

    Sorry to hear that Pete. Take it easy.
