I like the little steering wheel on the boiler, just the right size for racing, and a detail amateurs neglect. -- Russ

Is it possible you forgot to mention the bevy of beautiful girls in thong bikinis, each eager to cater to your every whim, who visit each night? -- Russ

Sleep Les "not a lot" but thinking of other things ! But on the other hand what do I actually "finish" What with all my scale hopping  and changing things never seem to get any done

Shot of the scrap boxes all off cuts even some measuring 1/8th in  first draw strip and round /tube bits
next draw down Channel and angle - I use this selection now more than ever !

I have been told even Harry Potter sneaks in at night to make use of all the bits !! Perhaps that's why I don't sleep a lot waiting to catch the odd bod visiters !!!

Back to the power house project - but first a bit of demolishing - Just thought the beams looked a bit over scale so now replaced with much lighter versions 
Photo one the heavy look

Barney, do you actually sleep? The number of models you build is incredible and your "bits and pieces" stock of parts must be huge. I'm just still plodding along with the sternwheeler workboat after two years or more building it.

Thanks a lot!
BTW... It seems that I have found my new vocation. A new project is already on its way  ;)
