this is the response i sent to Alex, (Thanks Alex,Thanks for the welcome!) back in July,
and as it's just been 'bounced' back as of 12th October! thought i'd post here as well as the P.M. AND e-mail i sent to Alex directly.
Will get around to writing an intro, just 'to many jobs, too little time'!!
You know, the 'modellers curse', or excuse!!
Also, being a 'Brit' i struggle with Maltese, all going great, in English,
then someone switches language and that's me shot!!
My limit is 'Merhba' (Welcome?), Sahha, (Goodbye?) and Nannu (Granddad?) and
sorry if i've spelled any wrong, or mis-interpreted any.
The site is great, the modelling is terrific, and is anybody coming over to
the nationals this November? If so, i'm taking up knitting!
BUT, can someone bring a 'spare' SSM polo shirt over for me, size XL! Oh,
and a case of Cisk, case of the local wine................!
Reading the 'thread' on Euromilitare i totally agree, Who'd be a judge? OR,
teach me to swear in Maltese!!
Went down to the R.A.F. Museum last year, had a club member enter some
superbly painted figures, what did he get? NOTHING,
not even placed, he recently finished one NEW figure, for the manufacturer,
to be used as the box art, so his standard is 'reasonable'!
Bit about me, been a member of I.P.M.S. on and off for years, first nationals i attended were at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire back in '80. Moved 'up country' and joined my first club, I.P.M.S. Cleveland in '04.
Since then, have attended all of the nationals, Oopps, S.M.W. (not QUITE as
old as 'Il nannu pec', just GETTING there!)
visited Malta for the first time in '08, stayed in Mellieha, liked it so
much returned this year on honeymoon, week in Valletta, then a week on Gozo, and we want to MOVE!!!
Well that's it for know, see you on the forums, and hopefully at SMW in Telford.
P.S. bring SUNSHINE!!
