A little tinkering and a fond farewell.

Today, I am between jobs. I left my last job on Friday and was sorry to go. I start my new job on Monday and am looking forward to a new challenge.

The job I left was working as a Puma, rectification controller on 230 'Tiger' Sqn and I can honestly say that the last three years have been the best of my career.


The job I am moving to is on the same unit (so I don't have to move home) and is a staff job that takes me further towards a desk but ticks a box for further promotion. It is also a job that I have wanted for a very long time so leaving 230 Sqn is very bitter/sweet. My new job sees me liaising with the RAF Puma units and industry/design authorities so it should be quite entertaining once I get my feet under the desk. It doesn't stop me being apprehensive about Monday though...

On to hobby things and I went over to Reading today and picked up some cheap wheels for the K9 vehicle. I have been busy tinkering with both of the support vehicles and once I have attached the wheels to the K9 transport, I will post pix of the pair of them. I have had a bit of a mare with wheels and gluing stuff...and have managed to get glue all over the place! I even managed to glue my fingers together last night (the super-glue tube split and I hadn't realised...) but I managed to sort things out with a little soapy water.

Since I received my parcel on Wednesday, I have sorted out a few miniatures and hope to show a few bits and bobs on Sunday's post.

See? There's always lots going on here!

See you after the start but way before the end!
