To (mis)quote the late, so very great, Eric Morecambe, what you've actually done is use all the correct colours, but not necessarily in the right places.  :-))

I didn't realise you went in for body painting John.  ok2 Never mind, it'll probably wash off.

Pretty miserable down here too. Trying to make a box for the nearing completion fishery cruiser but the garage is really too cold to work in comfortably.

Bluebird (wrong colour): Anything left outside is likely to turn blue right now.  Wait till it warms up and the colour should return to its natural hue.   

I am seriously thinking of buying some electric motorcycle inner gloves for sailing sessions.  On Thursday I left the lake a little early, just when they started evacuating the brass monkeys.

Sorry Guys

Down south in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia it is only 25 degrees with about 500 wooden boats in for a wooden boat festival.

I'm in the same boat. Spent yesterday cutting and fabricating a weathertight door in plasticard. Then used that to make a silicone mould.Then cast one this morning only to realise I had scaled it at 1/48th and not 1/72nd so a day lost. Then today I spent an hour drawing up a computer fan grille for another project, cut it out on the laser only to then realise I had taken the measurement on the fan horizontal and vertical, and when I had drawn in up in Coreldraw I had made the measurement on the diagonals :(( result was the grille when cut was 20 mills bigger in all directions than needed. So a waste of time having to redraw it and a waste of a sheet of acrylic. >>:-(

Yup, I get my fix here twice a day ... it helps get over the times when I can't get in the shop. Most of you folks are better builders than I am anyway.

Roy,

You are getting it easy. O0 O0 O0

Don't come further North as it's a little bit warmer.

Hopefully we will get the forecast thunderstorm this afternoon, whilst not pleasant should cool the place down a bit. :-)) :-)) :-))

Look up "Australian Wooden Boat Festival 2017"
Our ABC news has:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-10/sails-unfurl-at-wooden-boat-festival/8259480
There are several other sites.
Mayhem comes before news and Facebuck in the morning.   I much prefer to start the day in a good mood.

I love the smell of napalm Mayhem in the morning.
I too start my day by making a coffee, then over to the computer for my morning dose of Mayhem. It is, I admit, a bit of a ritual. Both the coffee and Mayhem help set me up for the day. :-))
