Your parcel should have left Australia by now Chris.
I hope I put in enough food for them.  I wouldn't want them to arrive hungry.  They get aggressive when they are hungry...

I had better ask my mate to go and find me some second hand fish tanks for them to reside in, as I am currently unable to wield any tools around for now at least.The will like living here, among the cellar spiders and milipedes.

Well, I found a very familiar parcel in my letterbox today.  It was the box of spiders!  Judging by the lack of any Royal Mail stamps, stickers or other markings I can only presume it never left Australia (or at least never entered the UK) and that some numbskull has misunderstood what "sender" means and returned it to me.
I can only apologise Chris.  I have opened the box, explained to them what happened and fed them a freshly killed backpacker to get their strength back up for a second go at making the trip.
I'll put the box back in the post tomorrow.

Plane looks great Tophe.  :thumbsup:

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks!
I wish you will have joy with the spiders as I had with this tiny 1/144th model...
Do you think I should paint it? (it would be sky blue with a black canopy)

This looks like a great idea! I've linked to this in my 'Viggenize it!' thread: http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/board,100.0.html

Thanks! With such company it looks a little less crazy ;D
I am going to paint it all right.

EDIT: first drops of paint on the very little thing:

You may have been surprised by the lack of asymmetry on this model of mine, but in fact, there is a little asymmetry: my skills are so bad that the fin is not glued at 90 degrees from the wing, but obliquely, slightly asymmetric...

Never photograph a lady's buttocks!


Why ever not?  :o

Why ever not?  :o

It all depends on the size / belligerence / macho stance of her "significant other".

And the focal length of the lens used to do the photography.......  ;) ;) ;)
