    You provide us with some of the best models on the planet. But my eyes can't stand any smaller.

    Well Doug,
    I have suffered from madness since birth and just lately it has been getting worse.

    I use the excuse that it is the lockdown but i know the truth LOL!!

    So the outcome is frantic tinkering when the medication wears off.

    Hi Colin,
    Thank's
    I read Rooky's response this morning and then i thought shall I or shan't I.
    So while i had a cup of coffee i tinkered about and this was the result.

    Wow Martin! Just when we thought you had reached the limit, you astound us again by halving the scale. Whatโ€™s next? Camels through the eye of a needle?

    Martin - that's getting ridiculous - how can you even see what you are doing at that scale - you should be a specialist in micro surgery at a hospital - you really are incredible.

    JB that looks like a picture of an African Bush Baby - otherwise known as a Pookie. Everyone wanted one as a pet - until discovering not only were they nocturnal (hence the eyes) but as they lived in trees - and spent their time jumping from branch to branch - they peed on their hands before each jump - and if they were jumping onto your shoulder as they liked to do - well..........

    Hi Bill,
    Definitely not showing off, just messing about, that is why i had to have a go at the 1/2" Springer.

    I will get back to my u552 and stop messing around.

    I can just see this going to market. Pay a junk of money; you get a large box with great photos and art work. Then open up the box ๐Ÿ“ฆ and filter through the packaging to see two parts. A stand and a small plastic shape...whaaa no decals?
