    One for the animal lovers here. Spring has sprung on my Smallholding. 2 Perfectly built models. Just born.
    I know this post isnt model related, but I'd like to share this special moment with my friends here.
    Hank the Saanen goat gave birth to twins about an hour ago. All are doing well.

    A change of pace for me tonight.
    I dragged out this old Aerodyne & tanker out that I started ssssooooo long ago I can't remember.
    This is a rebuild & to be honest the hard yard are done. Just the cab to finish & some bits & bobs to do on the tanker.

    So this is the bench as I left it tonight.

    Love the work you did on this one. Very very nice.
    What's the kit you worked from?

    I'm pleased you like the Plymouth Rob.
    The kit is an AMT offering. I think its quite an old tooling, it certainly gives that imperssion any way, but it builds up nicely. I don't consider myself a particularly competent builder & I didn't have any major problems.

    Here's a piccy of the kit box at the start of the build.

    WOW !
    Thanks guys, I'm completely overwhelmed by your responses.

    I have a `58 Impala to finish then I think I'll dip back into the stash for something old & rounded to build again.


    Regards to you & your's.

    `41 Plymouth.
    I've just put the finishing touches to this model.
    It may be difficult to see but I've added some subtle pastel weathering to the lower portion of the body in an attempt to blend the weathered wheels into the body.
    I hope you like my Plymouth as much as I do.





    Thank you for your time.

    Happy new year everyone.
