Angry Triangle board I have been working on, couldn't resist the extra interior detail in the bridge!

The Colouring-in Room / Re: Another Space Dwarf conversion thread...

Thanks to SDKFZ (an excellent tank builder on another forum) and his excellent Hanomag scratchbuild for a Chimera... I have started converting a 1/35th Tamiya Hanomag half track. So far I have glued the top and bottom of the hull together and then cut down the centreline of the kit. I then cut out a segment about 2cm from each side. The idea is to shorten and widen the kit. So far so good. All the cutting has been done and I have cleaned things up. I have also put in a lot of battens so that I can join everything together (they still need trimming but they need to dry at the moment). The next job is to put in a 1cm spacer down the middle and then assemble the hull. Here is my little workspace while my house is in disarray:



Note... the port is sitting minding it's own business... :)

Catch up time! Couple of afternoons put aside to tick off all the recent releases for X-wing and give them a quick tickle over with the hairy stick!

Made up a couple of LCM's for a beach landing scenario I want to play, they are 1/76 scale so not historically accurate as they can carry two tanks but this makes them much more game friendly and should allow the allies to at least get off the beach and not litter the beach with burning Sherman wrecks! It also saved me buying four kits as I am a tight northerner :)





Interestingly they can also transport up to 3 Tie Fighters :P

That's generally my attitude too but having recently received two of Antenociti's expertly and immaculately cast Azure Dragons dropships the Cheyenne does fall short in comparison. Still, built and fixed now and as soon as I can rid myself of this coughing virus I'll drag the primer out!

He's 8 months old today... and bigger than our 'middle' cat already. I reckon he's got a bit of Maine Coon in him because he shouldn't be this big. My sister's little tiny cat produced Sam... and there are Maine Coons in the same house so it is possible that there was a bit of mixed breeding going on :o .

He's just as you say... big, floofy and cute (but tends to play rough so I have to be careful when I put my hands near him when he's in a fighty mood :) ).

Guess I just have lower standards! It's a good rule I find that expect little from most things and you are often not disappointed :P

I find differences in international shipping crazy. From the UK I can get something shipped for maybe 8 pounds, tracking maybe an extra 4 or something? Not really a big deal. However shipping from here may cheaply cost $13 from something fairly small which is a pretty good price but adding on tracking costs an extra $60! What, is it being guarded by laser wielding monkeys?
