As I suggested recently, everybody’s on the Screwball Scale somewhere, in this case a linear plod of mediocre skills worth more as scrap lead value than as any modelling trove.
No commission bid from me….
Tom Cleaver said on April 23, 2018
Yeah, not much of a learning curve between #1 and #250,000.

You just have to admire his hunter-gather gene. I’d think it would be difficult to seperate the gold from the dross, though. Looks to me like bulk, rather than thematic, which I’d think would be the temptation. Stunning in its size!

And THEN, where ya gonna PUT all that stuff….? Don’t imagine they’ll get any outrageous bids on it!

Tom Cleaver, I can believe the story, and how it interests people, I can see how others might see it as being crazy, I can even understand (at least professionally) the obsession. But what in name of all that is holy are you doing reading the Daily Mail. You are an author, man!
it’s the fault of an Aussie, I swear. The sneaky so-and-so posted it at another FB modeling group. You know those sneaky Aussies. 🙂
Call me crazy, but isn’t there a correlation here? Author : reading?
Jeff Bailey said on April 23, 2018
You have something there, Craig.
Jeff, Craig, there is NO correlation between the Daily Mail and reading. In the same way there is no correlation between the National Enquirer and intelligent debate. It also, as Tom pointed out, quite explicitly give away the particular shade of one’s politics.
David LS, here in the former colonies there is a perception that Daily Mail does news items the local/national media here avoid. Which might be so, or not. Is the “Sun” still around? We have US News Today, which is like unto a precis.
Bernard, the ‘Sun’ is indeed still around. Doesn’t have topless women on page three anymore, praise be; seems in at least one area standards have risen a little.
Ah. The “Sneaky Aussie did it” defence…
Paul Barber said on April 24, 2018
I’d say Sneaky and Aussie are synonymous but the wife would enact a cunning plan to punish me….
Well, I’d commend the guy for trying. I wonder if HE did the work on the figures, etc. or if he simply purchased everything.
If HE did the work, he never improved his skills much!
David, what’s wrong with the Daily Mail? I don’t remember which publication, exactly but I remember the Page 3 gals being … uh, interesting. It is surprising to see Tom reading a British “paper” but I’m not criticising. He is expanding his sphere of learning.
I’m definitely high on the “Screwball Scale!” I’m not so much of a screwball to put in a bid, however. I agree with Rob on that!
The question of the paper deals with the (verboten here) subject of politics. However, I “get” what David is saying. 🙂
Page 3 – The Sun, still a bastion of British culture.

Made my day Guys: Tom with the news and all of you with the comments! 😀 Especially with the “Sneaky Aussie did it” defence which I will use from now on – Thanks!
David, Tom, all: Great reading is essential for a successful life. Read on, friends!
Oh….so the “Daily Mail” is a tabloid rag, huh? Didn’t know that.
It’s a commonplace that Tory Government Ministers read the Times, and their wives read the Daily Mail.
Craig, in my opinion it’s the worst of two worlds; a rag with pretensions of status. Rob’s observation of a Tory wife’s reader is perfect.
David A. Thomas said on April 23, 2018
Just incredible. But the guy obviously ins’t perfect. He blew the seams and that 1:48 a/c…no, not that one, the other one..yeah, no…that one…
“Blew the seams” may just become my new favourite phrase when things go FUBAR…

Does a Sneaky Aussie trump a Sneaky Pete?

A fantastic array of precious things – looks like he was enjoying himself !
“… looks like he was enjoying himself !”
I think all he REALLY did was enjoy wasting his money … but I can be accused of that, if one wants to look at my stash, (although Bernie’s puts mine to shame) my paints, brushes, tools, etc. I have amassed a LOT of model-making equipment , but with precious little work to show! I’m good with the comments here, but I can’t criticise anyone for their progress … or lack of same.
VERY enjoyable! It says so right here on the label!
