On the bench #8

Updates Well, Christmas came and went and until a few hours ago I thought I was in the clear for the white miserable stuff but no such luck as the snow is currently falling outside and we’re having a cold spree again… sigh.

A small miracle did happen last week when I managed to track down the Meng set of WWI...

Will Pattison (rubegoldberg) – Featured Modeller

Here is yet another of my favourite modellers – Will Pattison, a.k.a rubegoldberg – and he is in a way the most important and encouraging modeller of them all to me… Myself and Will share the same story, although his motorcycle wipeout is far more manly and fashionable than my trip down the stairs in a pair of wellies (rain boots), but the outcome was the same and we both were injured and were affected for life....

On the bench #7

Winter (or not?), dodgy paint and Christmas… Well, a lack of posting recently is a sure indication Christmas just went by and not trouble free I can add. PostMord already caved in during September and add Black Friday and Christmas on top of that and the total failure was complete! It looks like no less than five packages are lost. One the seller tried to resend to arrive before Christmas again but it still failed to arrive and...
