We do not normally get snow in the South East of England but today it is snowing hard. It will make the the exercise walk today interesting but it might make social distancing easier with less folk about. Many of my neighbours have had their first jab. I'm waiting for my letter with bated breathe. Just 31 days until we move to the new house. Fingers crossed there are no more delays. Have a great and safe day.

Happy Tuesday! We have accepted an offer on the house, a loss of £10K on the previous agreement, but no matter. We hope to move 22 Feb into a house double the size for a little under the same price once legal fees etc are taken into account. The area we move to is less populated than the Windsor/Maidenhead area where we currently reside. We move to a bigger county with a much lower population resulting in 80% less people per square mile. Covid has really bought it home that I want to live the rest of my life in a safer environment. Stay safe everyone!

Good morning from you should not leave your home without a reasonable excuse and only once a day UK. This is to remain until the end of March. On our daily walk yesterday it was 16 to 1. We had to cross the road 16 times to avoid other folk who thought they were more entitled than ourselves. The one was a lady of our vintage who deferred to us on the basis that we had arrived at the pincepoint before her. Writing this wil probably get me in trouble with the thought police. 2021, it feels more like 1984. The vaccines are being rolled out and I should be in wave 4, so hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel. I really pleased I have a hobby. Model on everyone and have a safe day.

A curved ball was thrown today. We were gearing up for the "move" next Friday but today I heard my buyer has the dreaded COVID. The family are quarantined at home but it will be sure to delay the process. Back to modelling today..................Have a safe one everybody.

Good morning everyone. PM Boris Johnson's father Stanley has decided he is French and will be applying for a French passport. Brexit is done and we are once again a free nation. The UK is Germany's biggest importer of cars at 20%, so I knew it was never in doubt. However I did buy a new BMW in June to help the process along. LOL. Last night a neighbour with more money than sense treated us to a 20 minute fireworks display at midnight. The hobby is a wonderful thing and has kept me sane in the scary world of 2020. Moving house is a difficult process at the best of times but during lockdown in a pandemic.............well not the best of planning. I wish everyone a wonderful, safe and peaceful New Year from snowy Britain.

A very good morning from Merrie England. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I have been "locked out" of the forum for several days but I have now managed to log on. It is frosty today with overnight temperatures of -6C. I will try and update one of my builds later today.
Have a great day!

Kit Building / Finals - IAH Seabiscuits
« on: November 21, 2020, 11:48:44 AM »
I was able to find some ground cover from my visit to the second home this week. So I added some to the diorama for the final pictures. I am looking forward to adding the diorama to the Cundy Harbour buildings that I have already completed. It should make a nice scene.

Sorry I have been missing in action for a few days whilst searching for a new home. Turns out we will not be down-sizing after all. Mrs C has fallen in love with a house some 140 miles to our west in Taunton, Somerset. Because we currently live in an expensive area, the new house is actually cheaper. However, we go from 1824 square feet to 3573 sq ft. Of that I have negoiated 698 sq ft over two rooms for layouts. I am looking forward to building a couple of empires. Currently there is a log jam with the legal work due mainly to peoples working from home due to Covid. So our move will probably be in the New Year. Meanwhile I can start dreaming and planning..........Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello from a wet England. Fridays the 13th have always been lucky for me. I was third time lucky when I married my lovely wife Jenny. Yesterday we finally got an acceptable offer on the house. So in the New Year we will be moving from Royal Berkshire to rural Somerset!Have a great weekend everyone!

Good morning from a sunny UK. Apparently there were reports in the US media of Brits celebrating the US election result with fireworks displays. Untrue, just for the record we always celebrate the week of 05 November with fireworks to celebrate the foiling of the Gunpowder plot in 1605. When Guy Fawkes and his band tried to blow up the King and the Houses of Parliament. Just saying............have a great day.

A foggy start here today in the UK. The first day of a four week lockdown. Everything is closed down apart from supermarkets and pharmacies. No visits to other homes are allowed. You should only leave your home for exercise. All cafes, restaurants and bars are closed and international travel is banned. Unfortunately all my landscaping materials are at the other house. My dioramas are going to be a little barren but I can still model some kits. Have a great day everyone.
Mike
