Been working on this a lot over the last few days. It's going to be painted with a different colour. You will see when it appears. Just had to fill and sand all of the seams because it's all in the preparation. If it's messed up at this point then it will look bad at every stage. A great model. Can't wait to move it along more.

A few weeks ago I went to WONDERFEST 2011 in Louisville, Kentucky. It was an amazing show and a modelmakers paradise. All manner of people from all over the world selling models that mostly were made to be sold there. I got a few bargains and some stuff I have wanted forever. One of the models was "RANGER 3" from Buck Rogers In The 25th Century. A lunar truck from the movie "MOON" with Sam Rockwell. A T.I.E Interceptor from Star Wars and a few other bits. Here's some shots of the stuff I bought.

We recently had to go to Los Angeles for a week. A bit of work and a bit of holiday. If you have never been, it's not like in the movies....it's worse....(joke). It's a great place to be, great standard of living, perfect weather all year round. No trouble and the people are very polite and friendly. My word of advice to anyone travelling there......AVOID the tacky tourist bullshit that goes with the place and see the real L.A. Drive the coast, go north towards San Francisco and see the real California.

My very dear friends Tad and Anna had a visit on Saturday. He has been promised a ride out on the bike for months. Well that day came and Southport for an ice cream was of course top of the list.
Here are Tad and Anna having a sit on the SUZUKI flagship ride GSX1300R, the fastest production motorcycle in the world.
