    Wowsers! Just stumbled across this thread and read it from start to finish. You sir, have the knack. Love how you’ve documented your build. Your techniques remind me of boat building. Hope that scar heals up nicely. Now you’ll just need a better story to go with it. A Dremel cutting wheel exploded and flew into my face doesn’t sound as good as “ I was snorkelling of the coast of Belize and was attacked by a giant octopus. You do know that octopi have a sharp beak. Well this one...”
    Cheers eh!

    Same. Only I doubt I'm going to get any before March. Not just moving house - I'm moving country

    I don't even wear goggles when I'm Dremmeling, I shall from now on. Please tell me you were cutting something really tough and not plastic. A speedy recovery my friend.

    We can compare facial scars when we next meet lol, I ripped my top lip off on a Land Rover ventilation flap after one pulled out in front of me when I was riding to school on my BMX and I went over the handlebars and face first in to it. It was messy.
    Ha ha You're by far not the first that's asked about the book. Some are cool stories, like the lifted JK I drowned in a river. Most are candidates for the Darwin awards

    Just so happens I'm building a boat. Thank you though And yeah, I should think up something good. I haven't seen a mask and snorkel in at least 5 years so octopus might be hard to pass off. And I cut my farmer john up for rubber fenders, floor mats and mud flaps...

    Anyways, as mentioned earlier we're moving house. From London to Frankfurt. In January. So I've put this build on hold until we get settled. There's a metric ton of stuff to do - get house into shape, sell house, find new house, find new school, find new job, and scarily, deal with the madness of new bank accounts, utilities, telephones...

    Fun.

    So I've got a scale retro gas pump I'm working on inbetween things, and the LCVP. Can't pack that one away until I've cut the huge pieces of styrene into a manageable size.

    Wow Michael. I have had 2 of the small Dremel cut off wheels disintegrate, one was to close for comfort, the other was me being cautious and holding it at an angle away from my face. Hope you heal up soon and good luck on your relocation. Looking forward to you displaying your killer build talents soon!

    Oh man it sucks how much real life gets in the way of toy trucks....

    I love how your 'in between' project is utterly awesome and far better than any of my main projects haha!
