You've got my attention Jarda.
Excelent attention to detail & its really nice to see a "weathered" truck. I'm guessing its a cross-over from your armour building techniques?
Keep up the wonderful work.
Zero at the moment, and its been that way since April.
I spend all my time developing my little farm, gardening & looking after my menagerie. I usualy start at about 7.00am'ish & finish up when it gets dark, thats about 10pm here in the South West UK.
I don't know how I ever found time to go to work, I'm loving retirement.
A bit later on in the summer when outside work slackens off a bit I hope to return to the bench.
I do most of my modelling during the winter months when I guess I'm at the bench for at least 4 hours a day. And if I'm skiving off from, or hiding from, work that my wife wants done indoors I can lurk all day in the shed at my bench.
What a shame.
Why is there an us & them mentality.
We all enjoy building models donâ€™t we?
And to debate the pros & cons of model building is a good & healthy thing.
But why the need to berate another forum because they have a different approach on their board?
A shared hobby is a hobby that benefits everyone, beginners like me & the experts among us too. To a greater or lesser degree we can all profit from both boards.
By limiting oneself to just one board forâ€¦â€¦(enter your own reason here)â€¦seams to me to be short-sighted & restrictive.
Ok so you are all thinking â€œthe dumb Britt just doesnâ€™t get itâ€ & youâ€™d be correct. I really donâ€™t understand the overly competitive nature that this board has against SA.
Iâ€™d agree SA is different, but does different equate to bad? And in the grand scheme of things does it really matter.
I remain an old guy bewildered & confused.
Stay safe everyone.
Iâ€™ve had a wonderful Christmas.
Our festivities started on Christmas Eve with Carols up at the Hall. This was followed by the annual estate workers super served by His Lordship & Her Ladyship in the grand dinning room at the Hall.
A very proud moment for my wife & I was having our eldest daughter directing the whole evening. She became Housekeeper to His Lordship this year so this was her first Christmas in charge. It brought a tear to my eye as she took the honoured place at the head of the refectory table & was served first by His Lordship.
Christmas Day was exceptional. All 7 of our daughters crammed into our little cottage, we had a traditional goose dinner with all the trimmings, what a feast.
We then had a short stroll into the village to the Pub where the Landlord opened up for a couple of hours, first drinks were â€œon the houseâ€ & much appreciated. Then back home to exchange presents & make merry & much merry was made well into the night I can assure you.
As for presents; well, for me the best presents are the ones money canâ€™t buy. And no amount of money can beat the contentment of having your precious family around you on Christmas Day.
