While contemplating whether to bring the battleship to Doncaster, disaster struck, in the form of me moving it.
DOH

Oh well, i better rebuild it at some point .
Moral of the story - Don't move models :-) .

It scared the cat, as he was laying next to where it fell :-) .
Looking at damage control, it looks as if all the rigging is still glued to the parts, but its the parts that have come off :-). Hopefully it is fixable.
I am more off about the base then the ship as i was rather proud of that sea effect.
Oh well, guess what my next project is .
Lucky i guess I'm just one of these people who except these things as part of life. No point getting annoyed as it was my own clumsy fault :-) .
It will be back .

Just a thought why don't we all bring a couple of WIP pieces on sunday and have a section of the display dedicated for that. Will make a change to seeing finished piece. Give the public an idea of what goes into produces our wonderful pieces of art.

Hmm,,an interesting idea Ross.
Ive considered this and decided I have 2 choices.
1.Spend the day looking at great finished kits,chatting with friends old and new,and drooling over all the goodies on sale.
Or,,2.Sit wrestling,struggling,and swearing while trying to rig a 1/72 Sopwith Camel under the watchfull eyes of my comrades in arms and enduring the "advice" they have to offer.
Now then,,,choice 1 or choice 2,,,,,let me think about that for a while :-) :-)

It's a good idea Ross, I had my mosquito there last year and it got broken on the way home, which is why it didn't get finished when it should have. I tend to take stuff to do impromptu demonstrations and I'll have a couple of WIP kits, but I don't, usually, find any time for modelling at shows. I think Nige should though, to help pull in the crowds

Sorry to disapoint y'all but the Camel isnt going to be near the rigging stage by Sunday.It might be a bit closer but Andy is insisting we go down the pub when he gets to mine on Saturday evening.Oh well,,C'est la vie
One thing I will be on the lookout for is a rescribing kit,,any suggestions on a good one Mal,as all I seem to be able to find are those "pointed pen" style ones.Are they any good for our purposes?
Sunday is going to be a great day!

Mal - If there is enough room i;ll bring my paint book and do a demo on figure painting. I'll bring along the Zouave I posted and do a bit more on that.

Great idea Ross, i for one would be interested learning how to paint figures. Most of my attempts look like Coco the clown :-) .

I have found that the best item for re-scribing is the "Olfa P cutter". I'll bring my re-scribing kit along and show you mine

There'll be room Ross, I would like to see how you paint figures as, like I say, I'm looking to get back to doing some

Well we will miss you Sunday Phil. Have a great time and buy plenty of kits to annoy the Missus with as she is such a spoilsport that she won't let you come out to play Sunday :-) .
