 OK ladies & gentlemen,   we're only going to get ONE shot at 2012,   so....


1. What are you determined to accomplish?

2. What model boat projects are you going to finish?



 Kind Regards,
 Martin   :-)

Many things I'm determined to do this year:

1: Finally give my bike it's 15,000 mile service (services due every 5,000, it's now on 18,900...)

2: replace the bent prop shaft, incorrect prop, and incorrect rudder on the corvette

3: BUY MORE BATTERIES! So I can use more than 1 boat at a time.

4: Finish both ducks for the race.

5: Build the big pop pop boat.

6: And hopefully start on my Revell Type VII-C conversion.

Oh and 7: I hope to build a concept stealth destroyer

There I think that's it, should keep me busy for a year, or 2.

I hope to finish my Armidale and start and finish my USS Arizona.

Joking aside, I really hope I get to see 2013 and possibly further.

Sorry Dicky, according to the apocalypse brigade the Mayan calendar ends on 21/12/2012.
So were all DOOMED.

Still if the Mayan calendar ends on 21/12/2012 they can always buy another one on 22/12/2012. :}

There were times this year when I didn't think I would be here today. So far so good.

EVERY afternoon?  Including weekdays?

As for the Mayan calendar - I got a calendar from my milkman- it definitely goes right through to the end of December.

Reading this thread has made my mind up! After 2 years absence from the lake due to family ilnesses, I'm going to ruddy well rejoin the local club and actually make it to some of the weekend steering competitions. I have trophies for 2nd and 3rd and I want a 1st!
