    The love bug (to cheer up my missus)
    Hi all roymattblack sent this model to cheer my missus up in her recuperation.

    First off let me say this may take quite a while as looking after Pam takes a lot of my time, but things should get easier as she recovers.
    This model does not have a sun roof as Herbie does so that's the first thing to tackle  (luckily I did the samba bus a while ago with the sun roof open, it was a little too wide and long and a little too flat but nothing that can't be fettled)

    Hi all can't really get into any serious modeling (no time) but decided to try another idea with the fountain made the paving slabs out of stiff paper and added pre shading, I think it's going to be OK, not sure how I'm going to handle the curb stones.

    Hi all I and Pam would just like to thank roymattblack for this.

    Very kind of you.
    I was looking at our hols pics and it dawned on me just how quickly things can change, this is Pam 48 hrs before 

    She won't let me take a pic now but she went from the vibrant funny person you see there to laying on her back unable to do anything with out a lot of pain in 48 hrs, live life in the now, you don't know what's round the corner.

    Thanks I'm just glad I'm fully house broken and can wash iron cook and clean house, we'd be in real trouble otherwise.

    Well I'm pee'd off with hospital gp agrees she should have stayed in, but that she seems stable enough now, what I'm really pee'd off with (my daughter in law is a Physio) we should have been given things like a bit you put on the loo to make it easier for Pam to get on and off the loo also the couch, they should have assessed our house for her to get around, for instance (a new experience for me) I had to shower Pam this morning, with a broken back an standing in the shower, she was being very brave but it hurt her a lot ( becky my daughter in law says we should have been given a chair which sits in the bath so she can sit down also a non slip matt)  I thought I had a great idea and would use one of the plastic chairs from the garden but it won't sit stably in the bath, I'm really quite cross. I'm now going to make a seat which fits over the top of the bath out of an old kitchen work top.

    Been at the hospital all day
    Hi all got back from hols yesterday and at 5 this morning my missus lept out of bed with cramp then decided she needed the loo, then I heard a crash lept out to find her unconscious on the floor of the toilet with blood pouring from her head, I phoned an ambulance and after about 5 mins she came round and was very confused, the paramedics arrived then 2 more then an ambulance they managed to get her down the stairs on a special stretcher, she's broken a vertebra in her back got crush injurys to her back and concussion, but, they still sent us home said it's a stable fracture, I've never seen her in so much pain, I have to say I was scared, don't know what I would do without her.

    Hi all, well Robin (on another forum) had a great idea to add a zebra crossing to give me a cut line so as i can join the two halves together, but I've checked and can find no ref pics at any time period with a zebra crossing at picadilly circus (and I can't add something to such an iconic British landmark that wasn't there) so,,, Ive got a cunning plan, I'm going to make all the buildings and scenery removable  (not sure how yet)  anyway made a start on the fountain, I was going to cheat and do it as it was in ww2 but of course the route master and mini and taxi for that matter were after ww2.

    I know, I know it looks like corrugated cardboard but with a bit of plaster of Paris I'm sure it will be fine (I hope)

    Hi all, this may or may not happen, it will be the biggest project I've ever taken on I've been playing with the layout, it will be huge (I may have to try and make it in 2 halves somehow to store and work on it) anyway I cut the footprint of all the the vehicles and have placed them roughly (obviously a piece of oblong paper doesn't really look anything like a car or bus but it gives me an idea of scale needed, as you can see I can't really make it any smaller but I will need a few more cars ( any suggestions on iconic British cars availiable in 1/24)

    This is something like I'm hoping to depict.
