Hi All,

I got an almost ready to run Riva style boat, and very quick wireless laser mouse a tinplate Vespa model scooter a Miami Vice DVD  and a CD-ROM Robot Wars Game. I don't do computer games, but I think I will have a go at learning this one.

Kids got me a container and a pallet of oil drums for Aziz

Rumour has it the in-laws are providing the crew for Highlander.

All I gotta do now, is finish Aziz......stuff the blog, I reckon a week should see it ready for the wet stuff

Tim Morgan's Scale Model Warships. Its a good read but doesnt contain as much info on 'how to do' things. The first couple of chapters are taken up with development of warships, particularly RN ones. All very interesting but its not what I wanted the book for!

There's pics of many warships but precious little in how to actually build or overcome difficult areas. All in all a tad disappointing. Still, I've got upto 350 to spend on my next project which could be HMS Antelope or Ardent, both of which were lost in the Falklands and might be a nice way for my own little memorial to those who lost their lives.

Christmas house rule? - don't buy Grumpy anything that smells or can be worn - works for me.
Basic rundown of my pressies this year: A new Nitro truck (Tamiya TNX), an indoor mini helicopter(Picooz), Revells HMS Victory (the set in the big box with the paints etc) couple of books by Cussler, Clarkson dvd and loads of vouchers for the local model shop, led head torch ( look like a prat - but at least I can see!)

Mind you, If  I spent on myself what I spent on her and the 'kids' - I could have had at least triple, but that's against the spirit of Christmas...isn't it?
Glad it's over, now the family bit's over I can get back in the garage.

Happy New Year to you all !

1. Rat with no tail (cordless mouse).
2. 'Maggie M.'!
3. Bandsaw/scrollsaw/belt+disc sander (now all I have to do is put that stuff together?).
4. Free beer from one of the bartenders and a hug! (No, her name's Kim.)
5. Underwear/socks.
6. An assurance from the bank that I have all this next year to pay for the above (except the hug).

... lots of things for my new household, unfortunately nothing for modeling....  :P
(Why do they think I  need a juicer if  there are much more interesting things for modeling- and they are much more important!!  ::)  )

... and no smellies (I smell enuff on my own- don`t need a foreign smell on me)

Colin- that`s why I have a mixer.... ;D 15000 rpm for mixing up a colour is fair enough.
The juicer just can be taken for the case that I can`t open that @%*# paint can....  ::)

Nothing for modelling but I did buy myself a well illustrated book on unusual boats.

As I dip into it I will blatantly infringe copyright and show you all some interesting stuff. However, the text will be in French.

A rotary dremel type thing with loads of accessories, and an RTR hovercraft. The dremel I can handle, the hovercraft will take some patience!  ;D
