    Guilty as charged General Sah, trying desperately to forget the 'Somme bath incident' terrible business all round! Thank you for your kind words my friend, taking it all one day at a time at the moment but I'm getting there slowly, these are times when true friends stand out and I can honestly say without friends strength and support this would all be a lot more difficult

    I need help

    Don't beat yourself up mate, to my way of thinking trying to match some of the builds on here is like trying to knock down a brick wall with your head.. I'm happy enough with my modelling skills and how they have developed over the last few years. Take a few steps back get a cheap kit(or one of the binned ones) and use it to practise on..small improvements will shine through believe me,try different paint,try thinning them down try anything and everything... there's no harm done if things dont work out as planned just try something different

    Mr T muscles his way to 20...and I have to ask... how do you know? Beardie (again) gets a 1(a) subsection purely because we haven't created a posh section yet!! TheBaron gets 1(b) because I don't have the foggiest what he's on about but it sounds marvellous!!

    Beardie latest contribution hits number 12 IanHx pops in a sly 13 Gorby raises health concerns at 14 Scratchbuilder undermines modelling making in general but redeams himself later in the post so sits at 15 And a double whammy by BIG X grabs 16 and 17

    MirrorOk I'm starting a thread on the golden rules of model making,you know the things you tell yourself you should or should not do on the NEXT kit you make coz you have either created a masterpiece or had a nightmare So When constructing a kit with what appears to be identical mirror image parts i.e undercarriage internals or twin engine booms DO NOT cut the parts from the sprues assuming everything fits.. consult the instructions and part numbers and do one side at a time and definitely do not glue parts together whilst thinking that doesn't appear to fit correctly but hey ho it will do!!
