Thanks to Will for being friendly & genuinely engaging on my first visit; Andy, despite being a grumpy scot, for offering a game of everything under the sun; Rik & Steve for f#@king swearing on every sub-f#@king-sequent visit; Chris for some intellectual debate and knowing who Christopher Hitchens was..

The bulb & brushes were a new idea.. and I’m glad I did it.

All painted and completed over the last 2 months. They’ve been built since before I started renovating my current home 4 years ago.

As celebration – here they are with their  Gorkamorka scenery, Crashed Ship &  Digganob Tents.(aka Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome ) I might even dig through my film collection for appropriate names. I still haven’t found the metal Digganob…YET!

Ming is most smug.
