Since moving house last year, I have not even been able to unpack any modelling gear due to a loft conversion, decorating, pulling that thing out, putting a new bit in there, sanding this and that, ad nauseum :(( :((

I might hold a 'retrospective exhibition' of some of my stuff just to clear out the cobwebs in here and make me get my arse in gear to sort the man-cave/ops room...it's been too long! :p :salute

As I was soaping myself down in the shower last night I actually wondered if Charlie was expecting again. Weird what pops into the head at the most inappropriate times isn't it!
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

My Nephew had to make a 1/72 spit for his boy scout group. I helped (built it all). It came out really $h1t but still looked better than one of Charlie's abominations.

Sorry Charlie, I have not had much modelling time since before Christmas - I need to try and pick it up again, possibly in the spring. I am a little flabbergasted though as my Christmas present from the wife was the new 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito that she found as a bargain somewhere. Not sure if I am going to try and build it, I am too scared, I dont feel good enough or worthy to build it at the moment, lol :))
