Disclaimer

Followers of my humble blog are respectfully reminded that the work illustrated here was created by a non-technical person with no formal background in engineering or any technical subject.
I understand that some people may look down upon me for this but in the era when I left school, such career paths were going off the menu at an alarming pace and the option was denied. To be considered a lesser mortal for lacking these skills is something I find deeply insulting.
Therefore I just try to get by in a post industrial workplace and have taught myself any technical and artistic skills such as are displayed here.

What you see is what you get and I really don’t give a damn if you consider me worthy or not.

I’m just happy if you enjoy what I put up here, folks!

About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

  1. First class degree? They should have been growing as a person, in the bar. Premier apprentice? They need to learn knowing everything about something isn’t the same as knowing everything about anything. Important work for the Government … we’ll skip that one 😉

    Lowly box shaker? Pull the other one.

    Dave.

  3. Snap! Did I tell you I once won a Gallon of Whyte and McKay’s for lasting a minute with out saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ in a pub contest?

    Great weathering as usual.Did any of the B17’s get up your way?

    • Only the ones built in Glasgow, Pete. I assume they had a bit of running in from Eastfield during acceptance but very quickly found their way down to what would be their adopted homes in the south. None were ever based north of Cheshire to the best of my knowledge.

    Great work Mr Smith Keep it up don’t let them grind you down. your weathering Makes the models come alive.

    Reblogged this on sed30's Blog and commented:
    Lovely modelling

  10. Well Dave despite not having a technical education your modelling is top notch, certainly of a quality I aspire to. Don’t worry about the bully boys, deep down we all know they do it to hide their own failings.

  11. Well we can’t all tell Rolls-Royce how to do design and modelling, for me, is about the visual representation of the real thing. If you prefer hand crafting finely scaled working replicas then go ahead but please don’t judge those of that believe life is too short and want to actually run our models more than once a decade.
