Still plugging away down here in CO. Went to Hobby Lobby and a local Hobby store. Bought the Testors paint set, some glue and a knife, as well as the little Trumpeter F-23. Nice little kit but the canopy is a real let down, like Dragon's Harriers.

At Hobby Hut I bought the Airfix RAF refuelling set. Fun little build. Lots of cleanup to keep me occupied.

Also bough the Bandai 144th scale A-Wing twin pack.

Wine and cheese party in room 412 ! We are tasting some Apothic Inferno, with some Longmire Ale to cleanse the pallet. Peppered salami, several selections of Duke’s smoked meat, along with old white cheddar, Port Salut, Havarti Dill, Comte, Muenster Enchilado, some Farmers Garlic pickles, Texas Okra pickles, Pepperoncini and olives, and three different pork rinds incl. Kimchi Korean BBQ. Cheers !


That'll do as an appetiser.  What's for mains?

Hi guys !

Been busy at home. Sort of. I hadn't had a nap in 7 weeks, but now that I'm at home with my dogs I can't resist lol. We're still house hunting as well. I found this old Chev pattern truck in one of the back yards....almost put in an offer for the house just to get the truck lol



Spent a few days working from home. Kinda nice ! Almost got the 102 and 106 ready for paint.

Going to have the wing off and the engine out so lots of research and work...

Cheers !

I've never thought of putting a pin vice into the chuck of a power tool. Might come in useful at some stage, cheers mate  :thumbsup:

The cab on that truck doesn't look to bad.

Best of luck with the house hunting, it can be very stressful.

Cheers Chris. No stress here really. Market is good and we're in no rush. I think I've already told the story here of what happened to start this. We were buying a small plot, 5 acres. Right in the city, rolling hills, big shop, another garage, a well as a cabin. Sold our place for asking the day it went to market. Then the appraisal hit. The place was actually 4.8 acres, so none of the out buildings could be considered if the land size was under 5. There goes the bank approval and we weren't willing to not put the 20% down payment and foregoe the CMHC BS cash grab insurance, so we lost it.

Any road, we're in no hurry. Just looking. And as an aside, our place was 400k then, and is now valued around 475. Sure it's all relevant to the market we'd be buying into, but not so much when we're looking for a small farm.

 :thumbsup:

There has to be rules I suppose ? If only to keep the lawyers fed  :angel: Not heard of a similar one over here though. Doesn't mean there isn't one mind you.
