  1. HobbyBoss 1/72 Hind

    That is really nicely done, just the perfect amount of paint weathering etc.
  2. 1/32 Mosquito Tamiya wip

    Incredible !
  3. Airfix 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk 1

    Love the Hurricane - the true workhorse of the Battle of Britain.
  4. actually it probably will be the last time, not because of the sharks (it was in a sea sanctuary at Manly, so no chance of being bitten by that well-fed baby), but it just didn't really do it for me. A bit like snow skiiing I guess - done it, not my thing.
  5. I was in the home stretch with this, just need to add a few bits of grass to the tarmac cracks & maybe a mechanic figure, but a busted shoulder has put it on hold.....and now I've decided my next project will be improving the cosmetics of my tired old 1:1 scale Hilux, so it may be on hold for a while now.
  6. A-7E Corsair II - Hasegawa 1/48

    Damn that is neat work.
  7. I went scuba diving for the first time the other day.
  8. 1/32 Hasegawa P-40K Warhawk

  9. My 2017 Production

    Great post. Love the mustang!
  10. Oh goodie, a Matchbox kit, my favourite. Great start on all the extra detailing. I made this one OOB with my nephew over a week on Xmas hols once:
  11. Yeah Mike - I think I'm in denial at being the wrong side of 50!
  12. Actually, the ER Drs/nurses were just going to send me home in a sling and said it will heal on it's own in 6wks. But from the Xray, I could see it was displaced, and would never heal quite right, so insisted on seeing the orthopedic surgeon (who is a friend of ours - the benefits of living in the country), and he said "80-90% chance it would heal in a sling, but if it were my shoulder I'd get it plated). As I do a lot of swimming & gyming for fitness, I wanted to maximise the chances of being able to swim pain-free again! Yes, the OS also said nice clean break with no bits of bone floating about. Compared to other cyclists plated collar bones, he seems to have gone heavy on the screws (11 of them - most have 6-8) but hopefully that will stabilise it more. And here is the video of the crash from my rear-facing Fly6 camera....on the easiest bloody part of the track - pathetic!
  13. When your other hobbies get you hurt. Crashed the mountain bike on Sunday, surgery Tuesday, supposed to be fly-fishing in NZ in 2 weeks....but it's not my rod arm I broke, so still hopeful of doing a little, though much less & tamer than planned (easy lake shores only).
