A few days behind, but now all three colours are applied, and this week I'll work on attaching the greenhouse bits, and source out 1 or 2 torpedoes, and she should be done ! I'm thinking of theold style Stars with the red dots. Just like the look. We'll see. Have to find those as well lol

P-61 pretty much done. I need to add a few decals and some weathering. Pics this week.

In the meantime I'm finishing off an EC-121 in RCN markings. I'm doing it in the USN scheme of white over grey with dayglo orange. 144th scale.

Thanks guys ! Been a busy summer for me. Spent most of it in Colorado, as well as working in Nebraska. I was supposed to attend a school, so travelled light with 'fancy' dress, and my company laptop instead of my own.  I ended up working for 3 weeks straight, with no plastic to fondle and little entertainment other than beer. :thumbsup:

You don't know the half of it Chris,  when we were looking for a nice little acreage (5 acres or so), we found just what we wanted near a town of Three Hills (it's 25 km away), we didn't take into account religion when we decided to buy the property (we found out later that the area is all bible orientated). But this town was a totally dry town, you couldn't buy a drink anywhere and anyone wanting to move to the town were screened by the counsel as to what your interests were.  But since we've been here (about 11 years now), the attituded has changed some, you can buy a drink with your meal at the restaurant now -----   and there is a couple of liquor stores now too  :o

I have experienced places like that both in the US and Canada mate and indeed the first time I went to Wales on a football tour back in the 60's we couldn't get a drink on a Sunday. Had to cross the border into another county in order to get one. Scotland may well have been the same back then ?

In my part of South London back then the Monday to Saturday pub hours were 10-30 to 2-30 and then 5-30 to 10-30. Cross the road to Lambeth and it was 11-00 to 3-00 and 6-00 to 11-00. You can imagine the rush across the road at 10-30  ;) Of course if you were drinking with a "meal" it was different again  :banghead: It was amazing what some pubs tried to classify as a meal  ;D

Totally different now of course.

Do they ? I've never, ever thought about mail order beer. I've had wine delivered in my on-line grocery order before, but mail order beer ? Just sounds a bit odd to me. Showing my age I suppose ?
