Ooh. Pulpy goodness. I can't wait to see what you have in store.

After talking to Wiggy tonight I might have time to do number 5...

Enjoy the Solstice today then! More light than you'll know what to do with it!

I only ever got as far North as Carlisle before I needed to head south again, but I'm a Cornishman at heart.


Come North, come North. You know you want to! Just get your passport stamped at Aberdeen and we'll let you in. Assuming you pass the security checks that is. And credit checks, DNA checks, sense of humour checks, have lost your luggage, found it, discovered it is actually the property of one Gerhardt Werner whose feet are two sizes smaller than yours and whose textile colour sense is missing presumed dead. If you survive that and don't get blown away by the gentle Force 9 breeze or drown in the light drizzle then Shetland is the place for you!

Seriously though, a fine place to live, and good for Gamers. Lots of useful stuff to tweak into terrain. BTW, Steve & Wiggy, got some plasticised foam packing and a 3' x 4' sheet of half inch flexible polystyrene - any use to you?

Had a detachment to the Shetland Isles once (is RAF Saxa Vord still open?) and almost accepted a posting there!

You make it sound so delightful!

So when can I and the missus visit for a game?

Come for a game anytime, Anytime that the ferry isnt rolling in a force 9 that is. You really start to worry when the engines, start up and the door is locked THEN the captain tells anyone who isnt in a cabin to find a safe place to lie down whilst they leave the HArbour mouth at Aberdeen! I think Saxa Vord is on the way out - help me out fellow shetland type chappies... I am sure I heard something on the radio today about a tour operator using the houses for their tourist purposes....

I used to work on a ferry. Not one of that scale though, I'd expect.

Just a 12-person, open topped, passenger ferry.

We usually stopped running before the wind got to force 9.

Saxa Vord is some of resort now. The wife and I were up there recently. Fairly posh hotel, using all the old RAF facilities. I think the restaunrant we used wa the old Sergeants' Mess.

Yep, on my last visit to Baltasound I dropped by Saxa Vord - looks quite nice. Sonny Priest is moving his Valhalla Brewery onto the Saxa Vord site too. Bigger FVs and higher storage capacity too.

My first experience of the North Boat was disappointing. Just like the Cruel Sea and In Which We Serve there was walls of green water crashing over the bow, but there were no U-boats at all! Not one. That Noel Coward lied!

On Topic Content: Jim was talking about modelling waves using layers of araldite last night. Anyone got any experience of seascape modelling?

Hmm, ThuleCon or ZetCon. Maybe something for the Thulies.

It depends on what size you want really... small waves I reckon you could do, I would go for a filler/grout rather than araldite, that stuff sticks to anything like glue Rolling Eyes!(sorry couldnt resist that).

Hopefully I will start putting out the tutorials (for want of a better word) after the weekend. I will go through them with Wiggy this week and see where to start. (I suppose that gives me a deadline to work to!) Shocked

The first are Pulp orientated I have two finished including write ups, and two in process of being finished. I then have to do the write ups on these.

I am trying to keep the size of the PDF's down A couple are running in at around 9 meg and the other finished one at around 4.

In each one I am giving an approximate cost in GB Pounds, obviously there are lots of people in other parts of the world who might want to read this, but I worked on the principle there are so many currnecy converters on the 'net' then people can change it to whatever currency they use.

The other thing I am trying to do is making terrain out of what I have around the house. This might include equipment that I have purchased in the past. But if it is a left handed corkscrew I picked up for 25p in a charity shop 15 years ago I will let you know.

Hi Guys, I thought I had better post something to get started. Currently I am working with Hirst arts casting moulds. I have most of the Egyptian stuff, so, until I get it out of my system, anything I post is likely to be Egyptian. I am the Jim Ivens that Wiggy mentioned by the way and I am not that good honestly.

Water! I need to master Water! Araldite works well if you use the slow setting stuff, but I am sure that the Vast body of knowledge that is on this forum will have better ideas.
