"Picture This,"....(and no, it's not a Blondie moment!)

I was having a little tidy up in the photos section of my PC before it goes into dry dock at the weekend and I was amazed to see just how many pictures I had taken not only my scratchbuilds but also downloaded from the net and used to illustrate many of my posts. Pretty much most of these have come Wikipedia although a few have been copied from various specific sites. I also made use of the really nice pictures contained in the Thoroughbred Model catalogue - I actually used some of these as my desk top wallpaper whilst I was building the model in question as inspiration. Of course, the most important pictures that are missing are those featuring the models painted and in action and I am hoping to rectify this over the succession of long weekends we have coming up - Easter, the Royal Wedding and the Mayday bank holiday.

At the risk of repeating myself (and simply because I was so pleased at how she turned out!) the picture above came out of my newly organised ACW archive and is of the fearsome Confederate casemate ironclad, the Louisiana.

Looking forward to seeing what these look like after a trip to the pain shop :)

Hi Dave,

All the best,
