  2. Evening all, so we started the day of by insisting that the "spoiled pooch" must come out on a dog walk, we decided to go a slightly longer route that takes us along an old canal then we normaly take a short cut under a train bridge and into our local park, but we were stopped in our tracks (excuse the pun) by a flooded underpass under the train line - we had no choice but to turn back. This added quite a distance to our dog walk we found a bench rersted up than went home - got in knackered. After dinner I decided I must do abit on the Chally - first off I decided to t

  5. Nah mate our dog is way to spoilt for that - she sits in the armchair filing her nails, and tells us to make notes of whats going on - what dogs are out walking thier keepers - we have to give her a full rundown when we get back - then even do her some dinner - its a good life for some.😁 OC.

So tomorrow I should be able to give it a bit more paint in a couple of light layers - same with the turret. I also decided to make the Chrome D
