Hello Gent's
 Just a up-date SD14 is in the loft at the moment as I cant work on her and gives me more room in my outdoor model room. I have heard nothing since the last time I told you all what was happening. am down to walking no more then 25 yd's now till this afternoon what i got a phone call from Scunthorpe hospital ask if I would come in a week tomorrow and have my op so hopefully they will find out what's really wrong and may put it right there and then as am on the op table as  am so out of breath and fingers are now white when my hands are tanned cant even grip a knife and fork now at times owning to the numbness  so hopefully I'll have some better news next week sometime think I may have to rest up for a few weeks6/8 I hope no longer might be longer before I can wash up or use the Hoover as I've told the Wife {-) also told her cold cans of beer help. well hope to up-date you all with some good news late next week.
                        Regards Howard.

Hello Gents.
      First thank you all for the best wishes I understand Tm has let you know am home again, Well in the end things have not worked out as I hoped  I had hoped I get away with a few stents no chance much worse then that got a few badly damaged arteries which are to long and cant be stented so results sent straight up to the Cardiac team to see what to do next thinking now its at least by-passes so hoping I'll get to know next week at least the Ango  has showed what's wrong so modelling still on hold will just have to enjoy watching you lot build for now.
              Regards Howard

What bad luck, though hopefully the NHS will get you back to some kind of working order in the future - take care

Hello morning Gents,
Am sorry to say I have had to put the SD14 on the back burner for now, My hands will still not work as they should, trying to cut card and 1mm slots at the moment is a non-starter just cant feel the scissors hands are numb and tingling can still big needles in and not feel it as you know I was in hospital about seven weeks ago but still hadn't had any results yet just what I told while on the op table driving me nuts not being able to model.
So have ben trying to so what I could do one is a Life raft 1'24 scale in Plastic like the one you can see on the Tyne models North/Ironsider The Red & white one  will put up a up thread once done and painted.
 Another is a build stand one size fits all just a bit more to do made from cutting mats and 1000,s of holes to drill but have found i can hold the drill in short bursts am hoping it the only one I will ever need to build any more boats in time and then just display stand for each one well that's what I hope, I hope to post photo's soon. it's about finding out what I can do at the Moment
          Regards Howard.

Well, Howard, I am sure we all share your disappointment that SD14 has taken a pause, but mostly we wish you well and that your physical problems can be resolved in some way.  Keep doing what you can (use it or lose it!) and we look forward to the day you can cut card again.

 :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Good luck with the stents, I have one.

Made an sd14 from a mag plan some years ago, but not to the size or level of detail as the one in the picture.

It's made from recycled materials such as a plywood door and hardboard side of old fruit boxes.

There is a market stall on the square in town that has fruit boxes with useable material, will begin some next time I see them.

Don't worry about the SD14 - your health and well being are more important, you may not be able to model (boats not fashion) but derive some pleasure from watching and dreaming of how you would build something, and when all the maintenance is complete by the NHS, then start to model and then we can all enjoy the fruits of your labour. Keep safe and look after yourself.

Thank you Guys for the reply's,
Rich I already have a stent been in 11 years its was checked and found to be ok they cant fix what I have with more stents that's what I was hoping for I want to get back some feeling in my hands so I can get on with so model making just doing my head in, Plus am down to no more then 50yds walking just very little oxygen getting to my hand and legs at the moment there's only so much sh-t tv you can watch, am just one of thousands at the mo in the same boat. Am going to try and finish the superstructure in little burst over the next few months as there's no card to cut I think you dont know how much you enjoy modelling till you cant do it.

                Regards Howard.

Hi Howard much sympathy for your demise.  I am experiencing a small prob myself. I woke up about 6 weeks ago with left hand little finger and one side of the adjacent finger numb.  It was like it for a week and went to the docs well not quite we had a phone call!  I was told it would go away and take Ibubrofen and this is like  a red rag to a bull to me.  I phoned my usual osteopath and I saw him and he gave me a going over down my left arm and a little bit of feeling has returned but will have to have another go.
I can see your dilema it is gripping and doing accurate cuts etc, it is frustrating.  I am fortunate that that is all that is wrong with me so I cannot complain.
All the best
Roy
