Tours over and Im finally in the process of moving into the new "Casa Lampie".
I cant wait to start building again,hopefully towards the end of the week!
A whole room that I can use for modelling and a shiny new broadband connection too!
Cant wait.Its been torture watching everyone posting progress and finished photos of models while Ive been away.Just hope I can remember how to build things!

Thanks guys!
I have a whole room to treat as a blank canvas for turning into a model room/den ,,I'll be able to store all my reference material in there and I intend to hang all my aircraft prints in there as well,,should be grand!
Mal,,Im now living in Heanor Derbyshire,just down the road from Phil and maybe 30-40 minutes from your neck of the woods.

Cool, the 3 of us will have to get together for a few jars sometime soon
I'm also lucky, in that I have a room dedicated to my modelling and PC, (actually it's the biggest room in the house ) the only downside is that SWMBO wont let me have my spray booth in there.

This sounds too good to be true There is a slight problem as far as I'm concerned as I will not drink and drive. This means that I would have to have somewhere to stay over night, so does this wonderful pub have rooms and if you're a regular do you get discounts?

No rooms at the pub guys,,but I reckon we could think about a get together for a Bulldog Bash.There seems to be quite a few of us local.
Craig,,,,Ilkeston eh?,,,just down the road,,only a couple of road blocks and minefields to negotiate then,,:)
Not sure if thats to keep Ilkeston people in or to keep everyone else out,,
Phil,,Almonkey is just down the road as well.
I feel a beer coming on guys!

Nigel,

There's nowt wrong with Ilson, That a low yield nuclear strike wouldn't sort :-)

The comment about bagdag comes from Gulf War one, A squaddie was being interviewed prior to deployment;

Interviewer: ' Arn't you bothered about going to a war zone?'
Squaddie: ' It's safer than drinking in Ilkeston market place on a Saturday Night'

A Bulldog bash has to be on the cards Nick 61 lives in Long Eaton

i'vr been working in long eaton the last two days, love those speed cameras
way to go on the room nige! when we moved in hee we had to store most of a flat pack kitchen in the room i would eventually use as my "den" when the kitchen was about halfway built (by me and my dad) i cleared a little space in the middle of it all and built a stuka kit on the floor (pre carpet) and told my other half the kitchen was incredibly tricky to install!
p.s. whats that in front of the airfix kit that the two lights seem to be shineing on, nige?

Where do you mean Phil?,,on the cutting mat or somewhere else?

its the red coloured thing, on the edge of the mat right in front of the airfix box. at first glance i thought it looked like a jet provost fusalage.
you must be saving up those airfix flying hours too, judging by all those airfix kits

Err,,its a screwdriver Phil :-)
Only thing under construction at the moment is the old Airfix Bird Dog for the Vietnam Campaign.As soon as that gets to the primer stage I'll be starting another Tamiya P47.
All the airfix boxes on the left of the desk are built kits and until I get some proper storage they are being used to store decals,old instruction leaflets etc etc.

First Ebay delivery to the new house today!,,The Revell 1:32 Tiger Moth. Cant wait to get stuck into that!!

Dead right Nige, sort out the priorities first, kitchen, lounge and bedroom can wait

Is the screwdriver a "Phillips" or a flat point?

Absolutely!
I have a review of the Dragon P38 "Droop Snoot" to do first and then I'll be doing an inbox of the Tiger Moth.If the sun decides to shine sometime this week I'll be able to get some decent sprue photos.
