Welcome to my new Blog

Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats, Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Looking closer

On looking closer at the picture posted earlier in the week of the tree in Debdale I noticed that there was something else there, funny how you don't always notice things first time round.

On closer inspection, there it is a little fly!

I've always taken photos of any modelling I do as it certainly shows up any defects you don't notice at first.

These are the stairs for front and rear of the Narra Boat complete with nosing for visibility in the dark interior.

Made a start on the kitchen area as well , plenty of plasticard used here

Fridge area

Full frontal

Stove area
 This project is an on going project so watch this space ! 

This shows what I mean about showing up discrepancies I think, still its got more work to be done on it.
If you think I'm teaching Granny to suck eggs there might be someone out there it helps so I'll be happy, 

Talking of Plasticard here is something my son RJR made earlier in Plasticard.

Smaller one is Ho

Painted and weathered

Look at all those windows to cut out !

I'm just a chip off the young block really


  1. Where would we be without Plasticard?

    The stove area and your John`s loco are excellent!

  2. I am very impressed with the kitchen.


    Ps I like the fish
