    My Retirement Plans !!!
    by boatiebennett ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ( Leading Seaman)

    14 days ago
    Hi Everybody,
    Having decided to finally officially retire, I have been inundated with an assortment of wrecks, part builds, kits etc.
    As you can see from the attached photos I've divided them into 3 Groups, Military Leisure Craft and Sailing.
    The Military group consists of a 1:128 Scharnhorst, 2 x 1:24 E.Boats, an unidentified V & W Hull, 1:36 Perkasa, and a 1:144 wooden hull of HMS Victory.
    The Leisure Craft group consists 1:8 Fairey Huntsman, a 1:36 Billings Sampson II, 1:35 Billings Calypso, 1:24 Clyde Puffer / Tug, Narrow Boat.
    And the Sailing Boats Group consists of 2 x Unidentified R/C Yachts.
    Finally there is a concrete Narrow Boat Planter to paint...definitely will not float, it weighs 15kgs!!!
    So having been forced to give up gainful employment๐Ÿ˜‚ , (I was management so I could delegate), I now find myself back as general dogsbody, chief cook and bottle-washer.
    I'm setting up the Workshop, got a computer design area, a general workbench and a painting/ moulding table outside, the rest will be a 3D printer and scanner when funds permit and the wife wont miss a few bob from the holiday fund.
    So no quiet life for me!!!
    Can I go back to work please?????

    Ah! Great minds think alike. I have acquired several abandoned projects by advertising, and have a few kits I purchased new for my retirement, having completed a few I am currently having a time-out and doing a canvas painting of a ww11 spitfire but will soon be back in the saddle and on with the build of the AZIZ tug I started a while back. Do any of you guys suffer with the curse of mentally planning your build in the middle of the night?โ›ต
    Good luck in YOUR retirement
