Well, I carefully clip the corners of ALL counters of my board games.

And then there is the microwave to the left and the refrigerator to the right of my computer desk. Oh, I also have my a** planted in a great gaming chair, that has it's own little fridge, in case reaching for the regular one is toooo much work.

Actually for me I am still a boardgamer at heart but do enjoy both. And buy both. Either way a great hobby. One enhances the other.

Well I haven't made a plastic kit for about 15-20 years but I saw that the Korean kit maker Academy do a 1:350th scale model of HMS Warspite. I've ordered this and just waiting for it to arrive. That should keep me occupied for a while

Luverly.

I've been considering beginning building plastic kits again. I suspect it is great for relaxing.

Like Warspite I have'nt done any military modelling for over 30 years, so I was tempted to get the Yamato.

But at £256 pounds for a 1/350th scale model, its a little out of my price range..

There is a 6' model of the Gustav railroad gun that is always on Ebay for a few thousand $s.

If I hit the lottery it's mine.

Ive never really got into modeling but it does look interesting.  Closest thing ive done to it, is the civilwar/roman minitures.

Wow...been storming all day here, rain and lighting.

The kit arrived on Thursday It's big! and ...it looks complicated... but worst of all, the paint instructions are rubbish

Fortunately there is a website that sells paint colours for WWII ships, planes etc. I told them what I needed and hey presto, they have given me the reference numbers I need.

Just got to wait for these to arrive so I can get cracking on the hull.

Well, I carefully clip the corners of ALL counters of my board games.



I used to do that to my Star Fleet Battles counters. I remember once me and my opponent had a summer long campaign and we actually named each and every ship. It was hundreds, counting the carriers, space control ships, dreadnaughts, cruisers, destroyers, Fed express ships, frigates.......
