So welcome everyone, to Inso's World.
Today is a momentous one because, not only is it my birthday but it is also my very last day in the Royal Air Force. Tomorrow, I am unemployed for the first time in my adult life. I won't be rushing out to get a job tomorrow but will start looking in a week or so.
This week, I travelled up to RAF Benson and attended my leaving do. It couldn't have been better with a great turn out, some excellent banter and a chance to catch up with people I haven't seen for many years. I stayed an extra day to make sure that I was safe to drive and when it came to signing out of the mess for the very last time as an airman, it certainly had a poignancy I wasn't expecting.
So... That's it. I'm a veteran from tomorrow after 28 years and 3 months service. It was certainly an experience but it is definitely time to move on.
In other news, I have been in contact with my caster and it is likely that my 50 pairs of LEGS will be finished around the end of the week and I am very pleased about that because I had expected it to take much longer. Once they arrive, I will clean them up as much as they need and then assemble my little squad of Tartaros styled Exo Squats before being in a position to provide a review and also prepare to get some ready for selling. Once I am happy that everything is ready, I will think about pricing etc and THEN, I will accept orders (if anyone wants them).
My German half track arrived and I have been in contact with the guy who converted/scratchbuilt the model that caught my eye enough to want to try and copy it. He has been kind enough to provide me with some dimensions so I can try to get the proportions right. It will not be an exact copy but with what he has provided, I am confident that I can create something that fits my purposes. SDKFZ is the guy who inspired me to give the conversion a go and one of his awesome projects can be found HERE.
Here's a couple of pictures of SDKFZ's scratch built vehicle:

I think it will fit my vision for my Squat army perfectly (assuming I can get the proportions right).
Well that's about it for now.
See you from the other part of the table!
