Sometimes, I just wonder why?
Groundworks started.
Why do I think I have bitten off more than I can chew?

I think's it's hilarious that the title of this topic is "The next generation of modelling" and all except the initial post is about the current generation - us!!!
We do have a next generation modeller in our midst however - Tom.

No the guns have been done its the vents I am on with - hohohohohoho
Just reading the latest issue of "Fantasy Figures International" magazine and one of the articles has got me thinking about  my next model - it will be based in Bempton and will include a little figure of a wizard - now all I need is a trip to Mighty Lancer to get the figure - YOHOHOHOHO

Will you be making the "Plotting Parlour" in Ye Olde White Heart pub down Silver Street next ?????????
Many a lunch I have  had in that room when I was at college, doing my marine examinations - the sausage sandwiches where excellent.
Now will I be a model on the city gate sticking 2 fingers up to the King - or are you keeping the model more accurate and demure  ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)
Always demure but never accurate.

The progress is quite slow, here we are to date.

History wise, The Siege of Hull was the first major action of the Civil War in 1642.
As Hull was a Royal Arsenal, King Charles 1 wanted to hold the city, but was denied entry.
More information here if you are interested

Well just to upset some of you - yes my first model was a P51 Mustang and I made most of the Airfix ships BUT most of my money went on books.
So now you can all tell me what a strange childhood I had and get in a few other jokes as well.
Maybe you should have read them as well? (Sorry, couldn't resist the dig).

I never had enough money to buy lots of models, we shared shoes, walked 5 miles to school, begged from the farmers.
You get the picture - sorry again, only joking.

I was brought up in Keighley and spent lots of my younger years painting Airfix 1/72(6) figures - American Civil war and so on.
I did buy and ruin the odd model.
