Hi guys, I know it’s been a while, but I’ve decided to start selling my stash, I have posted details in a couple of other, relevant, categories in the forum so I won’t elaborate here. I just wanted to thank all those that helped me through a really difficult time in my life. The generosity of those sparing their time and keyboard strokes on my endless enquiries will never be forgotten. And thanks Bobby for providing such a great website for us to ply our plastic addiction. 

I’m still battling health issues and it (the big C) hasn’t got me .. yet! But pain and fatigue issues from medication has made it almost impossible for me to hit the mancave. 

so all the best to everyone, I hope you’re all well. Maybe someday this old body can recover and I get my mojo back and I’ll pester you all again. But until that happens I’ll bid you adieu and good luck and health to all. 


you Aussies come and grab a bargain. Lol

Sorry to hear your news Simon 

I suppose once the fun of building becomes less due to ill health/pain there is no point keeping a stash etc.

Hope you stick around on the forum and maybe enjoy some of the guys builds vicariously, whatever you decide all the best for the future.

Geoff.

Simon,

Thank you for communicating here. So Sorry to hear about the health issues. I've had three rounds with cancer
and I go today to see if more cutting/treatments are in order. I wish you the best in all things.

Due to my health issues I have reduced my stash way down. I have not been on my bench in many weeks for
more than a few minutes.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sincerely,
Ted Ladd
USA

Simon! I've been missing your presence on here, my friend.

I'm sorry to hear about your health, mate. I'll pray for you and a return to better health and maybe the big man will listen.

I'd love to just have your input around here. I miss it a lot.
For now, try and feel better. Don't give up on living just yet, old man. I'm here for you.

Hi Mike, thanks mate, yeah I’ve missed being here too I think about the hours spent toing and froing here, good times. 

I‘ll certainly jump in here again from time to time and have a look. I hope everything is going well in your world mate. 

Maybe one day I’ll finish the Tamiya Spitfire that’s still sitting on my bench. Lol

Please, don't be a stranger. Make sure you let us know you're not yet expired.

Why isn't that Tamiya Spitfire building itself? I've heard that's another good one that practically does. Lol

Thanks Alain keep building my friend and I’ll pass the baton to you. Enjoy yourself here it’s a great place to hang as you’d know by now.

And Mike? I thought I did reply but yeah I’ll stick around a bit. That Spitfire does build itself but dang if it hasn’t gone on strike with me. [wink]

I really feel for you. So sorry that you have decided to give the hobby up, but only you know how you feel. 

I wish you all the very best and really hope that at some time in the future that you will feel well enough to return to the hobby with hopefully even more enthusiasm for it.  

Geoff.

Simon, I'm really sorry to hear of your health issues.  I have all kinds of aches and pains, but they all fall into insignificance compared to what you've been and are going through.  I do hope you recover well enough to get back into that mancave of yours.  Meantime take care of yourself.
