Programme on BBC 4 about the Somme - it gives a slightly different perspective, now up to number 3.
Maybe its on i player if you are interested.
I hope to get some modelling done soon.

That's why you are the treasurer!!

You've always have lots of things to count, even if it is Peas and Broad Beans.
Hope to see some modelling happening at the end of the gathering season.

More engine detail.
This is the 1/35 Meng Mk V tank (Male).
The engine detail is really excellent.

More work on the interior detail, I'm just wondering if any of it will be visible.
I may have to contrive something to make it so.
There is even some etched brass, so eat your heart out Haddock!

It does seem a shame to cover up all that lovely detail, maybe MSea has some bright ideas.

Lots more interior detail to hide.
Some serious clamping then to get the two sides together.

Painting and then onto building the sponsons.
The detail is really great.
I hope that you can see on the photo that there is even rifling down the gun barrels.
