MM - the man whose wife wiped all his F*&KING modelling posts and photobook pics off the net ....

Ouch! :-X

You have a disagreement or was it carelessness (as in " she didn't know what she was doing" / "she didn't know what she was doing & didn't care")?

Please tell me you have at least advanced this beauty, if not finished it. It is a real stunner. (SEAC markings is it?)
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

After almost 2 years of no work, it's back on the work bench.  Should be finished in a few weeks.

That is looking very promising Carl.  Acres and acres of stores pylons to go with that new wing.
