Years ago I used to do 14 hour shifts on a Sunday...Midnight Saturday night until 2.00pm on the Sunday afternoon. The money wasn't bad, but you had no social life!! :( ...but at least it paid the mortgage off, so not all bad.

Re: sdkfz 7/2 from 4D

looks good and nice models but it is not a 7 but an 8 same as the other one they make, the wheel holes are the wrong shape for a 7 not that any one else has noticed :lol: I used my "7" as an "8" as they scaled exactly right for 1/76 so undersized for 1/72 [/quote] Will, are thes...

Modelling inspiration

I'm always on the look out for 'modelling inspiration', and I came upon this colourised photograph.

I have a wire cutter that's similar.
How much do these retail for?

Google 'Side cutters' ...see what comes up
