Quietly confident

Well, things seem to be going well at the moment - but there is always time for a stupid mistake!

I am trying a new idea this time. Instead of embedding all of the photos into the blog, I have created a Lightroom slideshow on our home web site. I have done the slide show as a Flash presentation but because I know that iPhone and iPad users can't see Flash, I have also do the show as an HTML presentation so we should have all bases covered.

Today's Slideshows are here

Airfix Series 2 Bofors Gun and Tractor
This went to the competition last week and got a couple of points!
Here is the finished item

This was a very enjoyable build and I am quite happy with the final result. It has made me think about doing more small scale armour.

Revell Shelby GT500

This is coming along really well. As you will see from the photos, I have finished the chassis. I have given the body its white primer and top coat. I will be giving it two coats of Johnson's Klear today so that I can put the decals on. Still lots of scope for messing up the bodywork but fingers crossed.

Walthers HO - 1/87th - Scale Wooden Caboose
This is for my model railroad but it is here because it is a plastic kit which needed building, as you can see. I have finished the body and done the weathering. All that is left to do is to fit the trucks and couplers and then it will be ready to go. I always make one mistake - I have missed of the decals so I need to add them and then re-do the weathering over them - stupid!

Not a bad run lately. Don't forget to use the links at the top to see the full slide show.
