How the hell did I miss this? Looks awesome! Really nice work. You'll have to pick up a few of the Ian McQue "Sky Mark" Buoys we have coming next month to go with it.  Wink

  You're forgiven . We can put it down to you being too busy creating your next masterpiece .

   There has been some progress since the last photos were taken but at the moment it is on hold waiting for the big push to finish the last 10 percent . I , like , Reusser don't seem to have it in our makeup to actually finish anything .

 I also , like everyone else , have been waiting patiently for the Sky Marks to appear . Didn't you say something about " two for the price of one " ?

Ahem....Excuse me;  I have finished 4 things in these past 4-months. And will have two more finished by January....and when I mean finished, that doesn't mean dragging an old shelf queen out of the closet and prettying it up, because if that were the case I would have 5 things counted as finished.  Kiss Tongue Grin


BTW....how much does this island of yours weight? Grin

Ahem...1/24 scale model, two 1/35 mini scenes/dios, 1/135 model, ...and the 1/20 shelf queen.  By December will have finished one more 1/35 mini scene, and a seperate 1/35 vehicle.  Tongue Grin. (No can show though....for eventual tree-ware)......Gordon can vouch for the two mini-scenes...as I know he has completed 3 if not 4 in the last couple of weeks.  So I think you are now lagging behind.....better get busy with those bricks. Grin

16kg!?......are you daft man!?

  Mmmm , you have been a busy Boy . So it looks like you are taking your desire to win lots of awards at Pasadena very seriously ! I look forward to hearing the podcast of your acceptance speeches with interest . 

  Who on Earth models in 1/135th scale , other than you ?

 Maybe Gordon will bring his works with him tomorrow when we meet up at Barney's . Talking of whom , has been rather quiet recently , maybe he has been digging some his rejects out of the dustbin and finishing them off .

    You do make me feel very inadequate I shall have to redouble my efforts .

 Yes , it is rather heavy , but with all that plaster on it , that is not surprising ,

Cool. Yeah, there will be a two-fer deal. We're doing releases with different colored LEDs to choose from so the two-fer will be one red pair and one green pair of blinking LEDs. Red/Green denote different sides of a channel.

Old nautical saying:  Red, Right, Return!

Does anyone know what POSH stands for?  And, no I don't mean the Spice Girl.

It's originally a maritime terminology (as a lot of "sayings" are) based on the affluent and their cabin allocation, they could afford the better and more desirable cabins: and so the designation "Port Out, Starboard Home" (POSH) slipped into the local vocabulary, and then general usage as a term for the more refined members (or aspirational thereof) of society.
