    GRUMPY MODELLERS

    And, BTW, It's been an expensive week. Sunday night, the washing machine died. The replacement arrived Tuesday in exchange for about 200 quid. I got home this afternoon to be told that the tumble drier was making odd noises. The rear bearing broke so the drum was off kilter. Unfixable. The replacement will arrive Saturday. Another 175 quid. Both had lasted at least seven years, but we could have done with a cheaper January.

    Listening to the Solstice

    As you do. Gizza job, I can do that. Welcome to the 'what?' club. I've been there for years. I blame all those noisy aeroplanes/power sets and stuff. If it's just voices it's not so bad, but music, I would miss music.
  3. Well that was worth the wait. Welcome back to the fold.

    Tsk. A chap signs onto a forum in all innocence and has his character maligned in malodorous fashion by all and sundry. Shouldn't be allowed. I shall write to the Editor of the Beano.

    Spot of the Day Part 2

    I thought it would have been good if the British Mini had been updated with the Innocenti body. Instead we got the Mini Clubman, which really fooled no one. Although it gave better access to the engine when it needed fixing! Okay, yes it was better looking but really was a cheap update for BL. I vaguely remember seeing better looking designs for the update at the time. And there was a lot of car magazine correspondence regarding using the Innocenti shell. I think though there were questions regarding it's safety? It was long time ago.

    I'm not sure. As a gold member I should get more than others. But occasionally I seem to run out for some unknown reason. Maybe it's my own fault for spending so much time on here enjoying myself! And I've just tried again and it worked. Most odd.

    1/24 Samba "Sleepah" ZZZzzzzz mph

    I have a spare 1/24th Merlin from an Airfix Spitfire.... It would just about fill the back of a Samba. Plus, where would the fuel tanks go? I'm also willing to pass on my R8 for a decent bid. Like I said, when I'll get the time I have no idea. Or there is this on Amazon warehouse for less than 9 quid! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Revell-07100-Mercedes-SLS-Model/dp/B003E47HO6/ref=sr_1_71?m=A2OAJ7377F756P&s=warehouse-deals&ie=UTF8&qid=1547667151&sr=8-71&keywords=model+kits+plastic

    Savoia Marchetti SM.79 Lebanese Style

    He'll get nowhere with that sort of behaviour. (Apparently I've used up all my 'likes' for today.) What is a bloke to do? There's an Italeri SM79 on Amazon warehouse for about 13 quid. Search model kits plastic

    Very good butchers with all of the above in Boston on the Quayside/High street. (I'm delivering booze in Boston tomorrow morning too) (Oh well....) Another good one in Donington, South of Boston. (Apparently I've used up all my 'likes' for today. )
