I've spent rather a bit of time down our local hospital for various reasons over the last couple of weeks, whence not much modelling done, and it wasn't until I was chatting with a nurse this morning that I realised the NHS is 70 on Sunday. I always thought it was 1948, but it was 1950, so it was 2 when I was born  ;D

Obviously recently we've all realised how lucky we are to have it, and yes it could function better, but then could every institution, but it is one of the UK's great achievements. So can you all raise a glass of whatever to its 70th Birthday.  :cheers:

Oh and on the modelling front I'm hoping to get something done this weekend. We will see.

That will teach me to trust my own memory  ;D The NHS is 72 years old on Sunday, still I was in the hearing clinic, so I probably miss-heard something.  ;) Been thinking about it all night. Doesn't change my sentiments though  :thumbsup:

I had to make a stencil for the pastry chef to spray the plates for the desert at an NHS anniversary function two years back.  Can't remember what the potatoes or meat on the main were but the veg was Creamed Savoy with roasted Broccolli.  One of the few times I'd ever agree with HW Bush...

"An inaccurate parcel of dog turds!"

That would have been the 70th Lee, I obviously miss-heard something in the hearing clinic yesterday.

Well the Mohawk is finished  :thumbsup: I've struggled a bit with it for various reasons. Not the kit's fault, purely me. Just have to get used to the fact I have bad days  :-\ and slightly better days  <_<. Can't build to the standard I was 2 years ago let alone 5 and I was never more than an average modeller. Still I do still enjoy the hobby which is the important thing  :thumbsup:
