Pets and modelling, not a good mix….


Whilst sitting at the workbench last Sunday doing my best to finish off the Diopark Mercedes, I had been up and down attending to other chores as I waited for glue to dry when all of a sudden from the far reaches of space (the window sill I think) this fine fellow (see above) appeared rather awkwardly onto the cutting matt via the desk lamp making the light smack the desk sending the lamp de-fuser parts flying and knocking over an open bottle of Tamiya extra thin cement (I had the brush in my hand at the time gluing a door together) luckily the parts of the car were to the back of the bench so did not melt to the cutting matt, the left hand side of the matt is not in as good condition as it was sadly, I was trying to keep it in pristine condition… it looked so nice before now it looks like I actually  use it!!!!, people may get the wrong impression and think that modelling does actually occur in the workroom and the expectation will be that there will be something built painted weathered and actually finished….. oh! the mere though of such things.

By The Average Modeller

I am 48 years old and have been modelling since the autumn of 2002 when after a random nip into a local model shop on my way to work I purchased the old Tamiya Sd.kfz 223. I shared the build and paint job with my Step Dad where we made the fatal mistake of paining it before we finished the assembly and we ended up with a bit of a glue covered painted mess. When not involved in any modelling stuff I like to spend my time pottering around my garden, spending time with the other half and the children, listening to music, getting stressed at my football teams inabilities and procrastinating about just about everything else, oh! yes and work where I am Site Manager at a large primary school.
