Here you can post a brief or descriptive introduction about yourself. It is not compulsory but some members like to know a little about the person they're talking to.

Let's keep this thread clear of trivia, please. If you know of, are part of, or have organised a model show, somewhere, post it on here, please. Name, location (postcode for a satnav if you know it) times, dates, who will be there. etc.

No need for the expense of Neodymium. Cheaper bar or speaker magnets round the sides would be better I think as the drills would have room to stand side by side instead of all trying to stand on one spot. If you get my drift. Additionally blunt/awaiting sharpening drills could be stood on on side...

You would think the planets were moving in their orbit and the world was coming to an end with all the hype ! This is the second solar eclipse I have watched with the first one being total this one only 75% from my vantage point. I think the lunar eclipses are more interesting.
