Hi guys

I have been quiet for a couple of weeks, as my families latest 1:1 3D print just finished in the form of my first grandchild, a little boy, pretty chuffed.

On the hobby front, a few years ago I printed a Laffly S45t, from an STL released by Jarlang on Thingyverse link I appreciate his efforts however the file was designed for 1/100 and wasn't very detailed at 1/72, I didn't want to waste the original print, so I detailed it the old fashioned way, pics below, I can't find any info on what recovery vehicles were used by the 21st, so I decided a French S45t would be cool in the role, however I didn't want to use the old file, so I detailed it using CAD, I think it turned out pretty nice. Adding some picture showing the original print, the work I did on it, and the new print, of course I'll need one for my French, so now I'm being distracted with the allure of going back to my French project.

I have also been slowly working on the PzIVs of the 22nd Pz Regt, I've almost completed the construction, just need to add the tracks and some crew figures then I'll start the painting process.

Nowt better than being a grandad. You can give the little beggar back after half a day, when they are that small, but your contribution is valued beyond measure. Two younger adults get a few hours together, to do absolutely nothing that non-parents their age will do in that time, but they will take a few minutes to breathe.

Try two of you, married, bringing up twin boys. OK ours are now 29 years old and taught me all I know about painting model figures, UFC and Premier League Football (Soccer to you over the Pond).

Thanks gents, I've now been promoted to the grand old rank of poppy.

Maybe 'Opa' would be appropriate as a title given recent modelling endeavors?

I like all the Panzer IV's that you are doing.

Congratulations on your new grandchild, Dan. You'll love being a grandparent.

And fabulous work on the Laffleys and Panzer IVs. Superb as ever.

All the best,
