    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    From Halifax show yesterday.... No kits as nowt really floated my boat and according to Mrs fatfingers i've already got enough! Mig Commonwealth tanks paint set. Mig Solution Box for US vehicles. Want to improve my weathering skills and this should help. The guide book with it is rather informative. RB Tools grab handle former. Really nice piece of kit as been wanting one for ages. RB Tools magnetic holder for painting tanks. Nicely engineered tool. Set of the little twisty caps for Mr Levelling Thinner etc. Regards Steve

    2019 Halifax Show

    Really enjoyed it. Got parked up where i usually do when i visit Halibag. Was a bit of a tight squeeze when queing up to pay but no real problem and was in quick. The venue reminded me of the old Hudders leisure centre. Well done and thanks to all who organised the show Regards Steve

    New Airfix 1/35 armour?

    Certainly hope so. I do believe that Dragon have announced a 1/35th Saracen at one of the toy fairs recently. Regards Steve

    Trip to Halifax today yielded no plastic but two books from Halifax Modellers World... Histoire & Collections German Soldiers Of World War Two and Andrea Press Deutsche Soldaten. Both very nice refrences for German Army uniforms and equipment. Regards, Steve

    What's your day-job?

    How do chaps. Had a variety of jobs since I left school back in '88. Been a Junior sales assistant in menswear (really was like Are You Being Served) a care assistant, a barman and Pub Manager. Also did a few years working in night clubs as the day time ops manager. Worst job i had was as stock manager for a well known high street catalogue store. That particular job sent me off basket weaving for a few months. Have now worked in Social Care for the last 15 years. Started out as a senior carer then became a manager in various council care homes. Really enjoyed it but the aggro of trying to manage ever decreasing budgets became too much and i switched jobs just over 2 years ago. Now work as a Social Work Assistant. which is basically a Social Worker but without a degree. Job is very enjoyable, rather frustrating and can be quite stressful all at the same time. It helps that i work a great bunch of folks and have a good and supportive manager. No more weekends, bank holidays or shift work - the pay cut was worth it! Dream job? Always wanted to join the Police when I was younger but dodgy eyesight put paid to that Regards, Steve
