Kick Starter


Hello again! Is it Sunday already?! Welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been mostly about work... lots of it. That means that I haven't had a huge amount of time for very much else. It also means that when I did have time, I wasn't really in the mood for hobby stuff... so not a lot has been achieved.I must admit that it has been nice having a couple of days off, with my wife. We have spent some quality time in each other's company so it has made up for me not having a Christmas holiday a bit.Work is still great... although the 'politics' can be a little jarring. I am loving the work though... so that is where my focus is going.So... all the hobby:Click the Pic!This represents all my hobby time this week.

One is more or less finished, the other five need the green tidying up before a wash with Agrax Earthshade and then highlighting etc.In other hobby news, I have received my Onna-bugeisha Kick-starter from Bad Squiddo

She is ready for the highlight stage which will probably start tomorrow because I have to go to work very soon:Click the Pic!It has been a nice change to work on this tank... but I still don't enjoy the stippling part of the painting process... however, it does create the effect I am looking for so I guess it's just something I have to put up with.What happens when this is finished? I'm in two minds. I'd like to get more APCs converted and painted but I have a few distractions that are

Back to work!

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.It's a gloriously sunny day and I've been removing the remains of the fence in the garden. It was a victim of the recent storm and needed to be removed after some of it was blown down... that led to removing a 'seat' made of cement blocks and some slabs; which were obviously built by someone who never played with Lego as a child... I'll leave the sweep-up for another day.Anyway, I digress.This week has been one of training and pottering about. It is just like being back in the RAF... sitting through induction training. Mind you, I am getting to learn and use the new equipment that is required for my new job so it is most certainly worth while and is fairly enjoyable.This coming week, I have more training and some proper work shifts... obviously with maximum supervision but at least I will be able to start working properly, rather than being limited to what I can do.As a result of some of the more 'interesting' challenges I am expecting to face, I am also required to tak
