Cheers Tornado!
As a hobby, "jigsaw-ing" is too stressful! I think I will stick to model railways and plastic model kits in future.

quite a while since I posted due to quite a few reasons , work , restoring motorcycles , painting commissions etc

anyways here is my latest work ( around 1/3 the way in )

it is going to depict a day in 1982 when 2 west german f104g starfighters got lost on a training exercise in the uk and ended up doing a low flying exercise over Manchester city centre by following the railway lines for navigation

the signal box is Windsor bridge on the site where Salford crescent stands now

I got a grandstand seat from the signal box

Very good! I particularly like the workman with one foot on the rail - looks very life-like.

I was at Blackpool central in the let fifties or so when a Black 5 came in and hit the buffers at the end of the platform. It did a fair bit of damage and lifted a small cabin into the air a bit. out of it staggered a couple of very shocked railway workers. To my young eyes it was the most exciting thing I had ever seen. Definitely the highlight of my visit.
On top of everything else my football team is owned by chicken farmers.

That's very good that, i like the jet interceptor in the sky, nice touch.

I'm working on a watercolour of an LSWR G6 tank engine at the moment, rendering currently, then watercolour, all made the more difficult as i am working on it at a 90 degree angle :lol: :lol:
