1/72 scale Shackleton to build.
8 screws are better than 2 blow jobs. ;)
Did you know there are two Shackletons at Paphos Airport in Cyprus.

Oh, yes you did, I have mentioned it before.

I need to get out of here. :aaaaa:

Oh, this thread has reminded me I have a pretty large scale model of a 63 split window Corvette in the attic waiting attention.:D

If only I had some glue.

And paint.

And a spray gun.

At least I have the consolation of putting a new rotary washing line up.

:crybaby2:

I'm on standby for work today, so far not required for the day shift.
Will hear later if required for the night.

If not I won't be needed until on standby next Monday, followed by working two 12 hr day shifts next Thursday and Friday.

Been busy doing gardening and outdoor stuff while the weather holds.

Wondering if ordering ballast and sand etc counts as essential items, I'd like to relay the patio and a path while I've got the time.

Could do with some potting compost too, nothing left in the supermarkets and the garden centres are closed.

With so many people off, home projects would help keep people in and occupied.

Downside is that exposes the delivery drivers to risk.

Up side is it keeps them earning. I'm sure many of them are on zero hours contracts.

Same here. Really need some sand and cement for a little job.
Unfortunately I do have a abg of sand and a bag of cement in the garage that means I have no excuse not to put the tube in the ground for a new rotary dryer.

The 'buyer' didn't see any need to see if they could get one with a similar size tube to the old one, could they...:rolleyes:

Escaped briefly to get my prescription from the pharmacy i Sainsburys,
All shelves stacked, all customers apart from one old lady were being very sensible ( old lady just barged her way past people, walked up beside others etc etc )
I even treated Woman and picked up a paper for her !

For years I have called her Woman and calls me Oye

Today, I decided to take the fuel tank off the Norton, removed the ignition coils and polished them, cleaned all the terminals and greased them, then added some extra earth leads between battery, engine and coils.

I had to do something creative, and adding earth leads is both creative and useful when you’ve got an isolated engine
