Here are several pictures of the Se5a scout from the collection. The second pic along the top shows the Hucks Starter attached to the Se5a's engine, ready to start her up. Middle bottom pic is of the front of the Sopwith triplane. Isla has to be restrained in the bottom right pic - from nicking some parts in a side cupboard...

We spent a week in Cornwall, a visit to my brother and family then into a fishermans cottage perched on rocks on the beach in the lovely sleepy village of Gorran Haven near St Austell. here's a pic of the cottage taken from the beach below. We all enjoyed it, nice for Nana and Grandad to spent some quality time with Isla too. All in all it was a well earned break.
It was the first holiday for a while where I haven't searched out some military museum or other. I did see an old cannon when we passed through Looe, but no piccies of arms and armour this time.
Now i'm back at work and have a toothache to boot. Back to reality with a jolt. Got some plans to finish several mini's soon, and need to buy a couple of new Series 7 brushes.

I've realised that this is quite anal, but I can now reference the lot without too much hassle and know who's where and what's what. Units in blue-grey are not represented by miniatures, but they are there to show the real full strength of each formation.
A regiment of Kuirassier figures is missing from the graphic, as I couldnt fit it on! I also Feel the solitary pain of the lonely Wurttemburg battalion, I might just add another unit in there one day...
I'm really itching to base up these guys (4 to a base) but I have told myself I can't base them until all 24 figures are completed. there are a lot of corks with minis precariously mounted on them upon the painting table!
