Christmas Present

Post by Adrian Harris » Tue Dec 27, 2016 11:16 am

I was so lucky to get another WW1 tank as a present for Christmas.

And, in a complete break with her normal stance on these things, my dear lady wife has said I can build this one in the warmth and comfort of our dining room...

As you can see, I've made a start sorting out the pieces I need for the first steps.

No doubt I'll be asking for advice when I find a piece which doesn't seem to fit anywhere... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Progress has been made on my current 'build':

Having the grandkids over during the festivities has been a help, as the eldest seems to like jigsaws, and has exceptional eyesight :shock:

And it turns out that the dear lady wife, whilst being ambivalent towards tanks in general :cry: enjoys jigsaws :D
