I'm getting ready to jump in, (hopefully) in a big way but I haven't been able to break even long enough to start a solid thread yet. Hoping in a few days...

Wishing you a speedy recovery!!

My stash and WIPs have been packed ready for the move after Christmas so unlikely I will participate in this one either.

Where you headed to, mate? ???

I'm assuming not Adelaide. ::)

Couple of clicks down the road, we are trying rural for 12 months renting a 5 acre block with a decent house and most importantly a big shed decked out with two bedrooms for my step daughter, her boyfriend and there menagerie.  The idea is we give it twelve months and see what happens with my wife job and whether I can find anything suitable now our former employer pulled the plug on the contract I was working, if that pans out we stay and maybe buy rural, if not we give Sydney a go (would prefer Adelaide as I am still in demand there with all the new shipbuilding projects)

I'll keep everything crossed for Adelaide! ;)

For you & your career but, on a more selfish note, it would be great to get some face-to-face with a fellow whiffer, occasionally. :)

Maybe I should let you know the next time I am in Adelaide...

Just found my old partially built 1/700 Skywaves HMAS Perth DDG and what looks like most of the RN and USN modern weapons sets, Even better my roll top bureau is in my new massive bedroom, along with my expensive ergonomic office chair.  Just need to find the boxes with my tools, paints and other hobby stuff and I may get something done after all.  Just need to get to the point that I have been seen to have done enough with the transport and unpacking of boxes to have earned sufficient me time to do it.

We are seeing some great CPR and awesome effort here folks for those kits with VSA (vital styrene absent) !!!

Lets keep the defibrillator fully charged, apply the paddles and shock those dead builds back to life!

CLEAR???
GLUE 'EM!!

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

That is great news Paul. I can call your new employer if you want and ask them for some company time so you to get at least build done. ;)

No chance, they have an encumbrance on my soul for the next six months, in fact I believe they are considering reintroducing conscription to get this contact completed.  Should be fun though, working on real floaty things again.

Okay. Somewhat similar practice to the RN Press Gangs?  ;D
