100K Draw Prizes
All the prize winners should now have received (or be about to receive) their prizes. Yesterday evening after work I posted out prizes to Ferb, Alastair and Anne - the first two received theirs today and Anne's has arrived in the USA so it should be with her shortly. Seb got given his Spartans last Thursday; Vladdd's order with GZG was dispatched and Hetairoi should have received his electronic voucher for Baccus.
ModelZone Re-Opens in Central London
Yesterday was the opening of the Central London ModelZone store on New Oxford Street. This replaces the store which used to be a short distance away on High Holborn, that closed a few months ago when the lease was terminated by new owners of the building.
I popped along after work (and after posting the prizes) to check it out and hoping to pick up a few things I was running low on. The first thing I noticed was that it is much smaller - about half the floorspace of the Holborn store, but seems to have a better layout. Speaking to staff it seems that they are still waiting for a lot of stock to be delivered.
Unfortunately for me, all the stuff I was after wasn't in stock. I might have to order online as it isn't clear when they will be in stock in the shop.
Pirate Ship WIP
Here are a couple of pics of the ship as I left it on Sunday night. Once I've got all the base colours done, the whole ship will get a black wash, then I'll do highlighting. That will leave me with the masts, sails, deck guns and crew to do.
|Is that a pile of empty sandbags in the background? A leftover from another project perhaps?|
