Never seen that Elbow Grease - any good ?

Not tried it yet but I will let you know the results.

While shopping on my girlfriends mother's behalf today I found this...



And I thought you could only buy it in tins!  :rolleyes: ;D

Mrs_PR19 uses that on all sorts of stuff before putting them in the washing machine. Works a treat on the collars of my white shirts.  :thumbsup:

Well I'm used to people saying.... "use some elbow grease lad".... or words to that effect so seeing the bottle I just had to buy it.

Modelling wise not much going on. A few bits being done on the Firefly but when you have the Hungarian Grand Prix followed by the end of the last stage of Le Tour on the same afternoon then I am not going to get much done until a bit later in the day. I had also got a new mobile phone yesterday, or rather a mini computer that makes phone calls  :rolleyes: it's a Windows 10 phone so now all my computer devices run the "same" software although I can't get Firefox or one of its kin onto the new phone which would improve my ability to keep up with what goes on here. It's a Microsoft Lumia 650 for those that are interested and so far things are going well with it.

Since I started work at the beginning of the month I have not done much modelling, today I found out that I will be starting night shift on Monday  :-\ and not doing what I originally was being trained to work on but as I was not managing to reach the required targets, however as I am good at soldering I have been moved to another section to help out and the skills I have picked up so far can always be put to use if needed. Its only four nights a week so it sounds not too bed just have to wait and see how its goes.

Absolutely nothing done so far this week. Working nights certainly leaves next to no time for normal things to get done let alone anything modelling wise  :-\

Earlier this week, Wednesday to be precise, I was heading to work and had just joined the M9 south bound at Stirling when I was overtaken by a van towing a trailer at some speed.

I saw the logo on the side of the van as it sped past me hardly managing to see that let alone the words that accompanied the logo which I thought was familiar. A short while later with the van disappearing into the distance I remembered where I had seen the logo. It was the AllyCat symbol! Some what surprised at seeing them where I did but there had been a show in Dundee at the weekend so they must have been there and decided to take a bit of a holiday while there.

I hope he slows down a bit, it'd be sad if the business was clobbered because he'd been banned from driving for speeding AND towing a trailer above the specific limit!

Just wondering if that makes him a faster modeller than Dizzyfugu?

Actually managed to get a little work done tonight, just a little. Five minutes with a sanding stick and a similar amount cutting and sticking strips of plastic card together but its something, more during the day I hope  :-\

Something positive happened this evening. I found my scaled ruler!

Months ago I put it down on the "computer table" and lost the b!00dy thing  :banghead: and after a long search which included moving lots of things in and around the area that I have found it in I had not seen sight nor sound of it. I am sure that most, if not all, of you have also been through similar experiences.

Now if only there was some way to find the money I spent on the Lottery without winning........
