Hey Roy,

Well done on a well deserved joint GOLD Medal at the IMSS show last weekend! The F-350 looked superb in the flesh, and drew a whole lot of attention!!! The An Cosantoir category was well represented, great to see so many Irish subjects. Well done to Alan too on his fantastic Allouette rescue scene. Karl Hoy did well too. Great to see Paddy, Pat, Karl, Alan and yourself all in one room. Well done mate

What's all the fuss about here? OK, he finished converting an F-350 to an Irish SF vehichle and did a fantastic job, but what's that worth when he can't finish his pizza?!



Now Roy, you show me a clean plate and I'll join in on the celebrations.




@Alan, mecanix, Pat: Nice to meet you all! Chatting with you and all the other guys I met at the IMSS were a big part of making my trip such a great experience.
@Roy: Thank you for your hospitality Thursday and Friday evening!
@Glen and family: Thank you for everything!

Hi Guys Sorry for the late reply
I was away for almost a week and only got back late yesterday!

Thanks to everyone for all the kind words and support.
Glen, Paddy, Al, Erik cheers for all the craic over the weekend.
I had a great weekend and really enjoyed the show!
It was great to meet some of you at last and to catch up with the rest of ya who I had'nt seen in ages too.

I was dead chuffed with Joint Gold, some tough models in the category and was delighted to win Joint gold with Alan (Squad 55) with his Amazing Alouette III Dio.

Erik your a gas man
Hopefully I might get to C4 this year, I'll bang heads with Glen and see what happens!

Anyway before I bore everyone else to tears with this post I'll park it up.
I hope to be be back with some more unsual subjects.
I've a Pahard M3 and a Landrover Piglet build blog to finish so we'll see what happens over the next few weeks )
..maybe I'll see some of you guys there

I'll choose not respond to your ignorant comment my friend, I'll only open a can of worms! ..Na on seconds thoughts I will

Looking at your contribution to the armorama website via your profile & your other less than pleasant comments that you post on threads quite frequently, I have no doubt you are somewhat of an armchair bully, I'm sure like most civilised societies your home has a front door? Try going out through it sometime!
Meet people, even mingle, it will do wonders for your insecurity and whatever self confidence issues you no doubtably have. Sitting in your own filth behind your PC for hours on end getting off abusing people may make you feel alive but I'm sure if you got a half decent hobby you were good at I'm sure you could turn that little life of yours around

Take care



Here here! Well said. I've met guys from the Irish Defence Force a couple of times. Always good banter cause we are 'The Brits'... Ps superb stuff on this model. Where do you find all the extra bits for it?

A Bloody Disgrace it was!
A perfectly good pizza gone to waste!
Even brought the non too happy Chef out from the kitchen

Lol, all joking aside, was great to see you Erik, was a
pleasure having you over. Now I just gotta talk Roy, Al
and my wife into making the C4 visit happen

P.S. There's a little package on it's way to you mate.
Something you can never have too many of, just make
sure you build it

????? Why would he do that? It is clearly an F-350 - I'm not sure which Ford trucks you are looking at but this in no way resembles any F-150 that I've ever seen.

And if you are still in doubt, perhaps you should look at the photo of the real truck on page 7 of this discussion - it clearly shows the F-350 emblem.
