Brilliant David. I'd have neither the patience not the dexterity. You must have plenty of both

Blimy David C, you must have the patience of a saint. They're really good. Do you hang them up on your ceiling?

Hi David
Have you thought of painting shed ceiling as sky and clouds? I think it would set them off a treat. Just a thought

Nice work there David. I make models too. Here's a link to them as I can't seem to figure out how to put pics up

I rediscovered the joys of modelling about 5 years ago. They're my escape from reality. When I'm making a model I'm not thinking about anything else. It keeps.me sane.

Hi ,i used to make them when i was a kid ,stopped in 1975 and took it up again in 2011 ,agreed it takes you mind off being a carer .
Hoping to get some respite for my brother so i can go to IPMS Telford in November .
The modelling site where you post looks ok ,i use Britmodellers to post photos and get advice about modelling matters .
