47Hello and other matters
- Oct 14, 2000Hello, Comrade Nitpikin of the Festiniog has joined the Group!!
Adrian Gray is notorious for his use of green ink to highlight
corrections to Committee minutes - having narrowly escaped the
secretary's job some time ago he now makes life 'interesting' for
poor Ian Virgo. Fortunately IV reassures us that he should not be
confused with someone who gives a s***!!!
I was interested to read the bits about the W&L kit, I think David
has properly summed up the problems with the chassis - nothing is
insurmountable - but it helps if you start from flat etch rather than
an erected chassis.
If I can ever get back to modelling - reading and replying to
messages on the Festiniog egroup takes too much time and this will
only add to the fun - I will put this at the top of my list of
projects, if only because, having started all the furore I really owe
it to myself to prove that I haven't made a prat of myself!!
The model in the AGM competitions was said to run, and I believe its
owner, but it has to be said that the chassis LOOKED
b****y 'orrible. Robin's proposed surgeery to relocate the
hornblocks is precisely the route I have opted to take.
Anyway, more on that in its proper place - Narrow Lines. I know
which side my bread is buttered on Graham!!
More another day,
