Cheers to surviving, Wardukw! If you want, I can send you a care package of kits, got too many, mostly 1/72 kites, and a touch of Sci-Fi that I'd willingly send you at no cost, just would need shipping covered, as soon as I'd figure out what it would cost. PM me with anything you're looking for and if it's in my stash of "extras" it's yours.

Allo Nighthunter mate..yeah only to happy to oblige lol
Mate that's a great offer ...thanks a heap for that..as for what I need (this will help) I have no idea until I need it  :o
I build on the spur of the moment sort of thing if that makes any sense at all ..so as for that wicked offer ..anything and everything ...not alot of help I know.
Ok for example..here in NZ one of my fav model shops is called Stocker models..they buy alot of collections of plastic kits and built models and railway stuff..sometimes ill come home with a lovely pile of bits and have no plans at all.
Lately I scored 2 HO scales steel bridges and some 72nd bits and if I can sort out this problem I'm having uploading pics on here you guys will see the results of those bridges.
So what ever you don't want mate I'm very grateful for..simple as that  ;D :thumbsup:
Sort out the postage mate and we'll get it sorted 😁

Righto guys..update on the pic problem.
According to Flickr theres no way to copy a pic from their site on to this one with a android device..all i can do is post links to the pics.
Its annoying the hell out of me so thats that.
With photobucket being wanks with the way they hold your pics hostage if you dont pay its not worth the risk of paying for  a service only to find out that dont work either.
If you guys dont mind links ill do that but one way or another i will have pics on here.
Just wish i understood this net stuff like i can with a car  :lol:

Well heres a wee update for you blokes..ive thought of a way to get pics on here because android is pretty much useless.
Im gonna buy a lap top computer with a remote wi.fi hook up.
Then i can just go to the library and use there free wifi and away we go..no more problems and now we are entering level 2 of our delta variant of covid19 problem our freedom of movement has returned.
We went into lock down 3 weeks ago and ya all will love this..my less than 1 yr old dremel died..the day before the lock down..bloody brilliant timing  :o.
Now the idea has happened its time to start saving up to buy it.  ;D

Win10 is an UPgrade?  :-\ :-\ :-\

I'm sitting here on the only functioning PC .... Actually, the only PC in the house, at the moment. :o

The study computer has started to play up & wasn't firing up every time (I thought PSU but the IT guys say, probably, the (10 years) old Gen.2(+) mother board).

So, SWMBO & I went out & spent money we don't have on a computer in the $3000 range. As my IT skills are extremely limited reading up on data migration left me Dazed & Confused.

Therefore, the old study PC & the new PC are at the IT guys', physically moving the 2 x 1TB HDD's from the old PC to the new PC (which only has 1 x 1TB HDD) & migrating data from the old SSD to the new (double the size) SSD.

Hopefully it all goes well, as it's the PC SWMBO uses for working from home & she's stressing ... I'm stressing because its a gaming/graphic design quality machine & I want to see how it goes compared to the old beast (which was rather good, really).

Oh dont worry abour the HDs being a issue..they will work with the new pc without a hitch..thie new comp with rock the graphics side of things..graphics cards have gone leaps and bounds with power and speed..hell you can buy 12gig graphics cards now.
I built my own computer probably 10 or more years ago now and it survived the boom but it did need new GC as something killed the 1 gig that was in it..now it runs a 2 gig ..when i built it i got the best quad core cpu you could get..its old tech now but the 32gig of ram still works perfectly even tho i did buy a new 550 watt power supply 3 weks ago..must have just worn the old 500 out.
As with most things at some point i will need to build a new comp as now DDR4 ram is becoming increasingly more standard DDR3 ram will have a hard time finding a MB to take it and quad core CPUs are like dinosaurs .
HDs are becoming a problem for me at the mo..my 2 TB external HD is nearly full..its got 1.4TB of movies on it plus about 100 thousand pics ..ive got 4 drives.. 2 1TB HDs and 2 2TD HDs and im running out of space   :lol:
So for Xmas itz HD pressie time ..4TB will be the smallest i look at.
