In The Wars Again!

Well it's been an eventful few days to say the least! on Saturday morning I had some extreme pains in my stomach so the wife took me to hospital where I was diagnosed with Appendicitis. Subsequently I went under the knife on Monday and had it removed, thankfully via keyhole surgery. To say I had a painful weekend in hospital is an understatement I can assure you. However I am now home recovering and hopefully will get some modelling done once it's comfortable to sit at the bench. It was a bit of a panic as we are off on holiday in two weeks time but I have been assured I should be well enough to enjoy it!

God Save The Queen!

Well it's been a fantastic weekend of celebrations for the Queen's diamond jubilee here in the UK even though the good old British weather has played it's usual hand in the proceedings, yes it rained again! Here in Devizes we have had various street parties and a big music concert on the green yesterday. I popped down for a while and could also hear the music back in the den on returning home.

On the modelling front I am afraid that I seem to have lost interest in the chopper and the tank I am building at the moment. Possibly due to other factors which have got in the way lately so they will be going into the pile of doom until I get the enthusiasm to finish them off! Oh well that's the joys of modelling In suppose, I do find that sometimes if I am not 100% into the build it quickly turns into a chore so for me that's the time to stop.

So for now whilst I rummage through the stash for a suitable model to re ignite my interest I will leave you with a picture of a model I'd rather like to drool over!
