Just thought I would drop back

Postby John New » Sat Feb 27, 2016 5:02 pm

Hi Guys.

I just thought that as I haven't been actively posting on here for a long while I would let folks know I am Ok, just very busy in other non-modelmaking areas at present. Still interested in railways, as ever, but it has been all research into history of the full size beasties of late, together with working on a major project for the SLS. That all compounded by going back to Uni full-time as a mature student with a Dissertation on the go currently. Must be mad at my age! Some of that workload will cease after this summer so hopefully back on the modelling trail again in the autumn.

If anyone on here is around at the York Show over Easter will be there on the SLS stand or Show Info desk and happy to Gnatter.

All the best for now.
John

Hi John and welcome back. I remember some of your work and it was quite good. I am almost 71 and I still teach online for a large university. You are never too old!

July 2014 when you last previously posted, so no time at all, we simply thought you'd popped out to the shops :D .

It all trundles along much as usual here, looking forward to what you do next.

Cheers,

Still around, degree now completed but still mostly working on research.

However, bought some more bits and pieces over Easter at this year's York Show so the modelling bug is slowly awakening from slumber.
