Hi folks, just a quick one to let you know I’m still around and doing some modelling apart from finishing the decoupages. I have finished the wife’s present and am just waiting for the frame. I received a note that I have been blogging for seven years which is quite a surprise, how time flies, so a big thank you to you all for following me. Your positive comments and helpful tips have kept this old fellow struggling along with modern technology. I do admire the way you all just bang out a post at the drop of a hat while I drag out the well-worn instructions that young Fi did for me, then the buggers wanted to change the format, nearly chucked it in then!!
While I’m on it, one of my early followers whom you all know as IRO, young Luke, has been a great aid to me especially recently when sanding and varnishing in the shed. I’ve been plugged in listening to his hilarious and informative Podcast he does with his cobber Big Wazz called The Fly on the Wall. It is pretty rough but it’s worth having a listen to if you are into Podcasts and not easily shocked!
Well in the past I have pretty well been able to stick with one project and see it through to completion, but of late I have gone off the rails and have a couple of projects going on whilst spending recklessly (as you can see in the last photo!). All in all I have gotten myself in a bind!! Anyway I have a smaller WWI project using the little tanks I have managed to make and paint as shown. It’s not your usual WWI diorama but something a little different. I wouldn’t even try to do any Western front ones as there are so many brilliant ones done by more talented folk than I.
Well thanks again all you talented folk for your support and I will try to drag out the instructions and post something soon.
