  1. Morning all, just thought I'd pop in to see how you're all doing and I see that a few of the old reprobates are still here ... I shall no doubt be wearing this one today for a change :-
  2. I'm going with this today.....
  3. A very Merry Christmas to everyone....
  4. Rain at last !!!!!! .... This one for me today....
  5. Well I'd say the same thing to anyone asking this question, try to find your local club and get good advice from people who have done it before, that or these days the Internet is a vast repository of information on the subject. In fact we are lucky these days that there is a huge amount of equipment available at really low costs, well, low relative to what they were when I was a kid many, many years back... These people sell just about everything you could possibly want for a radio installation... https://hobbyking.com/ ... and there are plenty of companies also selling model kits, some of them things of beauty...
  6. You can have the room next to mine....
  7. You never know, there are model boat clubs and waters tucked away in all sorts of places, my local club sails on a lake in the grounds of a nursing home ! ... These are the websites to find out where your local club operates... https://www.mpba.org.uk/ ...https://mya-uk.co.uk/ ... have a look, you may be pleasantly surprised....
  8. It was a straight runner, but when I restored it I put in Radio Control to save all that running around the lake after it... Nice boats you've got there, you need to find a lake, or a bigger bath...
  9. Today was such a nice day that I finally got the opportunity to take the 1920s pond yacht, that I had restored, out for a sail. What a great day for sitting by the boating lake, watching the model boats sail by...
  10. I suffered the same every day for five months of every year for twenty years, and that was before any drugs were available for the condition, in fact I was supplied Imiran injections by the Princess Margaret's Migraine Clinic on the very first day that they were released and then went through various other treatments for years, including Oxygen saturation. Not nice are they, especially without medication. Funnily enough mine were stopped by me contracting ME after a bout of Glandular Fever. Apparently it affected the same part of the brain that caused the headaches and stopped them. Mind you, think I'd rather have the headaches as the ME is permanent and very debilitating.... ...
  11. This to watch the lads on Horse Guards this morning...
  12. One of the greats.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-europe-44333446/the-swiss-master-watchmaker-running-out-of-time
  13. That's one very good reason for buying it..... Actually money aside, I like the look of that Rado and it's something a bit different in this day and age and nice to see that under the Swatch umbrella the brand is still distinctive., I think it would be my choice .....
  14. Oh I agree but it's done a different way and I think this article does a lot to explain that.... https://www.ablogtowatch.com/love-grand-seiko-timeless-luxury-watches-explains/ .....
  15. And therein lies the core of the situation in that the production numbers of Grand Seiko, compared to that of Rolex, is miniscule. The production methods and ethics for GS are totally different to Rolex too, so there's no comparison really, other than they both make watches at similar sorts of prices ....
  16. It always does, that's why it's called fashion .... Style, is a horse of a different colour ...
  17. I'm like you in that I have fairly slim wrists but have found that the design of both case and bracelet makes the larger size model Seamaster extremely easy and comfortable to wear... Having said that I do also wear smaller watches and like Gimli agree that the smaller version looks great too, which could be a bonus if price was a major factor ....
  18. I've got a few Seiko of one sort or another but funnily enough the one I wear most is the one below. ... It's reliable, not overly thick, good lume, date date, which can be handy at times and is just one of those "Does what it says on the tin " sort of watches...
  19. One of the watches that I still crave ....
