    Nothing at the moment Vince. I had one of the sets years ago with two Vought Corsairs in a vignette. I may do something similar. The tractor is missing from one set, but I got them for a reasonable price.

  10. Getting the colours on DSC_0005 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr The sculpting is quite nice on these, much better than the earlier sets. DSC_0002 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr DSC_0003 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr
  11. The set painted. Grenadiers Voltigeurs Fusiliers, officer, drummer and Horse Artillery trumpeter The next set to enter the process is the 01749 Imperial Guard. There is a thin film of flash around each of the figures. DSC_0004 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr So they received the soldering iron treatment. DSC_0005 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr I have 8 figures left over from my previous set (with the bases cut off), so I may as well paint them at the same time.

    GRUMPY MODELLERS

    People who use line-breaks in the middle of sentences. It really disturbs the flow of reading. The mind thinks the sentence has ended and a pause must be inserted, when nothing could be further from reality. Is it done like this because the poster is using a mobile phone and thinks no-one will be able to read their message if it extends beyond their chosen page width? AAAAARRRRRGHHHHHHH! And posts written with sentences on individual lines. Like a shopping list. Again, the brain thinks that the conversation has stopped at each line end. But the missive continues, broken by the line breaks. How many books are laid out like this? Or maybe the poster has never read a book. It's like reading staccato!
