 No wait, that's what they called the General.

Not that gasbag Pete, the other one, that's less "gaseous"?

Just a quickie to let those who follow this thread why things have gone a bit quiet of late. Some may be aware that I have become seriously unwell with my mental health and as such have not done much modelling as a consequence. I did manage about an hour under supervision yesterday but it left me completely wiped out. I am trying to get back to something like normal but, if it happens at all, it is going to take some time.


I am not looking for sympathy or anything, it's just that I think that you guys that have been loyally following the thread deserve to know why I have been AWOL.

Andy Sweet and I are looking forward to the next coffee morning, whenever you feel up to it.


Take much care.

Just had a scan through the last few pages. I haven't been on Britmodeller that much recently, have I accidentally entered a strange parallel universe? 🫣  😂

You've unlocked this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Britmodeller Zone.

Your Martianness,


Your health is paramount.  Take your time.  We will always wait, however long, for an update and are rooting for you - mind you, if you take a very long time we might have taken root!   :wink:   But what the heck......get well.


Best wishes.

I wandered lonely as a nurglet. 

In a field of golden smurg.                   

Mimsey were the lamp posts   

And my trousers were aflame          

So disgusting to steal the immortal works of Myra T Breckinridge Junior Pete, shame on you


Martian Do Doo Dooo get weller soon - ish


Mentality keeps blundering into so many lives these days, can anyone tell round here?


And followed by phisicality takes over oft times it seems

(Pete can I suggest ditch the tee shirt mate, self aggrandising is so infra dig)

Yes, it's been a difficult time for him but we've banded together to offer whatever assistance and support we can from this end; after all, isn't that what this life business is all about? Weirdly or as Ripley would have it, "believe it or not," our humble abode has become known in recent years as, among many other things, a "house of healing" (other people's words, not mine), and I'm glad to say Martian feels the same way. He had so much fun recently that he's agreed to a return match in October to help aid his recovery, down a few Pan Galactics, annoy the neighbor's cat, do some scratching (modeling), and celebrate the Mems 60th birthday. He's even promised to cook us a special 'something'...the mind burgles. Baldrick looks understandably worried, the neighbor's cat has developed a stutter and the local sanitation department has been put on short notice.

Wondered what the smell was Pete, assumed you'd stepped in something and had a go at the Mem's Vindaloo...

Dearest Martian

sorry to hear the news but wishing you a speedy recovery. 
You won’t need told that all the “usual suspects” are rooting for you. Several for each tentacle 🐙 as it happens.

This just turned up in the four word story. Those of a nervous disposition should click on the link by remote control...




BTW @Martian you started this! 😆

Nothing like Raspberries in 3 part harmony.
