It has been 6 months since I was last active, but after the stroke it took me until now with the help of doctors, nurses, physio and of course my family. I now have the all clear from the hospital, so can't wait to get back to my models. My boy cleared my garage and built me a new bench and store cupboards so now no excuse for not repairing and restoring my fleet.
First up will be my dads old Sea Queen from the late 50s. Then I'll have to see which of the other's (about 6) will be easiest. But plenty to be going on with.
Well I'll stop waffling on now and say its good to be back.

Fair winds and calm waters,
