Certainly sir, we have a wide selection of bombs available for your delectation and delight.  What can I interest you in today?

...Love the "chaotic" markings too, but then I would, wouldn't I?  ;)

I have no idea what you mean.  :rolleyes:

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

We have the boy this weekend so i'm on Uncle duties.  Unfortunately try as I might I can't get him to take an interest in building any form of model.
That means no real modelling time until Sunday pm.
However, I did mange to sneak out and take this pic.

I've got a couple of rolled tarps to detail up and glue on and it'll be finished.

Everything in the background is tilted one way or another. Reminds me of the bad guys lair on the the old Batman TV show.
Awesome work, is that from a wargame or Star Wars or some bashing work?

It's well camouflaged with the workbench background at least.

The Handley Page Henfield is finished.

Words have been flowing from my fingers again and i'll take some beauty pics tomorrow when I work out how to fit something this large onto my 1/25 car sized picture setup.

Thank you gents.

Apart from setting up Gypsum Flats (a large offcut of Gyproc plasterboard on a pair of saw horses) and taking pictures of the Henfield today I got some paint on the XFV-1, procrastinated over rigging the He-51 and started blending the Turbo into the Stuka.
Then a storm hit, the shed gutters overflowed, water made it's way under the door seals and through the shed (it's set up for that - up to 2 inches is OK) and I dropped a freshly painted dragster chassis into a puddle  :roll eyes:

Just fiddling with small stuff today...
...and then I dropped the XFV-1 snapping off one tail and loosing the castor.
D'oh!
Tails glued back on and i've made a new castor.

Day improved somewhat with today's tomato harvest.
