    Model building; 1/32 and 1/48 aircraft (mostly), 1/35 armour and 1/72 and 1/350 warships. I also play club cricket for a local team where I've opened the batting for the last 15 years. I retired from wicket keeping with over 150 dismissals.

  1. I went looking for cheaper alternatives too, found a bloke on Ebay who is in the Ukraine or Russia selling track link sets for about 10 bucks plus the same post.
  2. I don't often buy brand new kits, but I liked this one.
  3. Yeh that is the one thing you have to be careful of if there is a fire or flood; all those critters will be looking for dry ground away from the water/fire too. Good news is once the water goes down, they will move off, they really don't want to be around you anymore than you want to be around them. I've lived next to and around open fields for many years (not so much these days as the area has been built up) and I've only seen a snake in the wild a couple of times. As a kid the freeway that goes at the back of my house was just a huge open field of long grass, friends and I use to go wa
  4. Yeh, they call us the land of fire and flood for a good reason. Ironically all the "climate experts" were telling us how rain would never come back to Australia and "global warming" would mean endless drought.....Tim Flannery, calling Tim Flannery...nope he's nowhere to be seen at the moment. In Victoria the state government was so scared by Flannery and his alarmism that they built a billion dollar desalination plant.....that has barely produced a drop of water and costs us tax payers 1 million dollars a day NOT to produce water, because it started raining again. *sigh......
  5. The sun is pretty quiet at the moment, thoughts that it might be going into a solar minimum, with little or no sun spot activity, this will mean cooler temperatures. It's been a very mild summer out in Australia and predictions for a wet Autumn.
  6. Oh no, the dreaded diamond duck! Yeh I figured it would be longer Wumm, oh well.
  7. 500 wickets is pretty good, I have 3 wickets in 280 games! We have a team mate who we plan on clapping his 100th career run
  8. Back into 5 days lockdown cos our government screwed up again. Cricket cancelled just when I was back in form (51*, 84, 29, 38 in my last 4 digs), can't go out, can't have visitors, can't drive more than 5kms from your house. Well I think I'm building models for 5 days.
  9. One of the best fitting kits I've ever built.
  10. I set out to again build more than 1 per month and did that. I also rescued 5 kits from the shelf of doom so progress was made there. In no particular order; 1/32 PCM Macchi 202 Hasegawa 1/48 A6M5 Zero with Rising Decals Dragon 1/48 Me 262A-1a/U3 with Cutting Edge decals Fujimi 1/72 Yokosuka D4Y3 Judy Hasegawa 1/350 USS Gambier Bay Trumpeter 1/32 Mig 17 with Cutting Edge decals. Tamiya 1/35 Pak 40 vingette Dragon 1/35 Hetzer Dragon 1/35 Jagdpanzer IV Hasegawa 1/48 Junkers 87D-8 Stuka
  11. Sorry stuffed up the image code, fixed now.
  12. This is the biggest diorama I've built. The centre piece is the older Dragon IS-2 which is a very nice model still. It has a roughed up surface texture and the track links are impressive, being able to be linked together without glue and bent/shaped around the wheels. White aircraft ID stripes were freehand hand painted with the tank number being the kit decal. List of other items used are; - German solders from the Dragon Desperate Defence gen 2 figure set - Dragon Soviet Motor Rifle Troops Berlin 1945 - Verlinden Ruined house sections and sidewalk - Firestorm Hobbies bri
  13. Lock downs are not recommended even by the WHO and many virologists do not recommend them to combat pandemics. This idea to lock down came from the Chinese.
