And with that, I am now officially on holiday until the 3rd of August. The workshop is locked, the computer off and my office, shut away. No more modelling, writing or filming for the next week or so!
Now I’m sure that many of you are more than happy to with this break in my nonsense, but even so, I’d like to thank everyone for their help this year and also to those of you that have taken an interest in what I have built, written and filmed. It’s very much appreciated!
So that’s me on holiday – I’m off for a pint! See you when I get back! 😎
I’ve created a little beginner’s video on the use of liquid glue. This is in reaction to a few questions that I’ve seen recently, questions that I think many of us would have asked when we were starting out.
I hope that you like it! 🙂

“Opinions vary wildly on this kit. Many feel it to be utter rubbish, others really liking it and many (the silent majority) no doubt falling smack bang in the middle. Me, I like it. I felt that they were no more difficult to overcome than many other kits I’ve built over the years”

“If you spend time studying a sheet of instructions and you can see that parts suggested to be added early on, look likely to break off as the build progresses, you are already well on your way to finding those simple to navigate paths that well all crave”
Here’s part three of my look at the Kitty Hawk Su-17, this part completing the major assembly of this impressive model kit.
Applying decals is easy – you just have to know the rules of the game.
“What this experiment has shown me is that yes, both systems work, but one is considerably more time-consuming and risky than the other”
We continue with our retro build of the Hasegawa A-4M…
“Perhaps the most important aspect in the painting of any model is the preparation of the model and how you go about priming the surface ready for its final layers of paint”
