What I have found since starting to do model making is that stage 3 emphysema And parkinsons disease Make sanding little bits real easy but painting and construction is a whole new ball game   :-)

I thought Iíd revive this thread after my little accident I had today!


New motto I shall live by... never trust Christmas gifts from the RAF!


Three years ago I was deployed to Akrotiri as part of Op Shader and since I was there during Christmas I was given a Christmas gift box which has been tradition since WW1. As per those original gift boxes it was full of useful gifts which also included a plastic mug. Iíve used this mug ever since that day for work brews. However today that ceased when I was making my usual mug of lunch time coffee and I raised the mug to the wall mounted hot water boiler and I heard a Ďpopí. I initially thought it was the boiler heating and cooling but it was rapidly followed by a burning sensation down my left hand which I promptly dropped in to the sink. The mug had split open and emptied its contents over my fingers! It was really painful and it now looks worse than it really is but now Christmas gifts are conspiring against me! {-)

Will you epoxy the mug closed and then wire it tight with RAF wire before continuing to use it?

Well didnít expect it to be me as the last post on here again!
As many remember of my little accident on Mayhem at Wicksteed 2022 (falling in to the lake!) Iíve just had another blood test for an unrelated issue but was revealed when being treated for the lake falling incident. I will not mention ever again any issue with me giving blood whilst giving blood again! My body decided that it would recreate the same problem with veins closing up when a needle goes anywhere near them. So much so that I almost passed out in the nurses room almost 17 years after it last happened. Just recovering now with an overly sweet coffee but wow that was unpleasant and unexpected!
So remember, your body is always listening and will accurately recreate those embarrassing moments for all to see {-) :-))

I really feel for you Nick, in hospital they tried ..... 11 times in a row without success, I had to stop them in the end.
Next day, a phlebotomist come round, jab, pull, blood, first try!

Nurse said try drinking a glass of water beforehand....

Wow, they tried turning you into a proper pin cushion didnít they!
The medical centre than rubbed salt in to the wound so to say by saying I was due my ten yearly vaccine jabs for the big three, hopefully I can say I donít need it because apparently they put it all in one jab with the tetanus vaccine which if you remember I had to have last year after my lake falling incident :D

Hello, re the phlebotomist mention!
When I was in Oz and also in hospital I had a blood test, a very large lady (a phlebotomist) came to take some blood.

Bearing in mind I was in Australia, after she had taken the blood.
I had a quiet thought that she might have a nickname.

'Digger' came to mind.

For my yearly visit to the local plague pit, I told them  that if the loverly Lisa wasn't available to take blood (TRAINED Phlebotomist), I  wouldn't attend, had the dart players in the past. Sadly she succumbed to the big C at a tragically young age. She only had to look at me and I bled. In Hospital, a young Indian lady went through the procedure in about 15 seconds, never felt a thing, but let's face it, some are sadistic feminists.    O0
