    Remspoor got a reaction from myglaren in The grumpy thread   
    Americans on YT.
    First that legend* Mustie. With his will it start video on the Imp. Someone associates it with Mr Bean. 🤦
    Next is Albon and his presentation on The Untold True Story of Goodwood. He has made  quite a number of errors in this one. Like associating a WW2 bomber with WW1. Timelines not correct and missing the fact that UK law prohibits road racing. Plus a number of other facts. 😩

    I am jealous. All I get is the cat occasionally sitting on my laptop. You get great die-casts.

    Remember my grumble?
    I emailed this to the offending garage on Monday morning. By close of play that day, he had offered a refund which landed in my account this morning. 
    I don't think that's too bad a result, do you?

    I fancied a pie for my dinner.
    Until I saw my reflection in the TV.
    I am beginning to look like I have been rogered by an omnibus.

    KN95 masks are great at keeping the pollen out when you get nagged into cutting the grass. Super cheap now too. Only snag is you attract clever cunts who like to tell you covid is over.

    Got out of Work early today and decided to pop by Tescos.
    Picked up these two, finally got a Honda.
    I'm sure the Landy is in the same box as the Kadett and 36 Ford but no sign of them. There was also a 48 Willys in Khaki, White Food van , Road Roller & a rubbish self driving bus thing.

    In other news these are in the works.
    Chopped up to make a crew cab to go with a single cab I made out of a ruined older matchbox.

    Today's reminder that I seriously need to acquire some cleaning wipes for my laptop:


    Opel Commodore B, in GS/E spec.

    Think this may be an IXO model, maybe? One of those 'Opel Collection' partworks that continental types get to enjoy, while us over here just get to browse the Jumajo website with green-eyed lust...

    Unfortunately, this one had a minor accident on the way over - busted box and damaged headlight.
    Ah well. Still very nice.

    A thing arrived

    Yes it's another carded Neet Streeter, in the solid red rather than the very similar looking metallic on the one I found last year:
    I showed you this Dinky Land Rover a couple of Sundays ago

    Now whilst I have a lot of respect for Land Rovers, they're not entirely my thing - couldn't resist it for a pound or two though, and I thought with a lick of paint I might actually be able to sell it on. Well of course it's never that easy, I had problems with paint reacting in the bed and also had some peel off removing the masking - same colour and same problem as the Gus's Gulper so I suspect it's a problem with this tin of paint

    Still, it looks alright now. Googling pics of this model shows some with silver in the bed and some with white. Not sure if I made the right choice...

    A recent find is this Fun Ho Bedford Tanker truck,all the way from New Zealand!
    Not a great casting by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a charming little thing despite its shortcomings!





    Never had a casting from this manufacturer before.
    Quite pleased to have found it.

    Finally actually got my ADHD diagnosis in writing after seeing the nurse at the clinic instead of the psychologist, who turned out never to have properly finished my diagnosis. Nurse was loads better at her job. 

    I'm really fucking pleased, 'cause the check up revealed my blood pressure is back to normal (was pretty high in winter), and since Christmas I've lost 16kg - two and a half stone

    New addition to the fleet, modelled here by MrsR but used by us both...

    This is named, for obvious reasons, Madge.  Actually it's both handy and fun.
