Hi,

I'm a new member of your forum, although I have been sneaking in for a wee lookie at photos and tips for a while.

I live near Aberdeen in Scotland.

I'm a middle aged old buffer and my slot cars and mannies all belong to my seven-year-old son.

I'm very impressed with the standard of projects posted in your site and only wish I had the skill and/or patience to try similar.

Happy
hogmanay

Sorry, we've reached the limit of my Aberdonian, but I'm fine thanks.

This year, as always, I got an Our Wullie annual (every other year it is a Broons book). Years ago I showed one to a Geordie mate who spent ages reading it then announced he had never heard of this Geordie cartoon strip before. You see, to him the Scots read exactly as Geordie!

Anyway, back to the mince pies...

Scott,

To really appreciate your Oor Wullie Annual, you should ditch the Mince Pies and have a deep fried Mars Bar.

Thanks for that,
I'm just recovering from the New year now.
back to work on Monday so I can earn some money to pay for some more wee cars and mannies for my layout in the loft

I'm not posting any photos. I've seen your layouts and I think I've a heap of work to do. The whole thing is currently covered in plaster of paris landscaping. And so am I. It's a messy business.

Skeeter,

I remember there used to be some RC racing in Stonehaven but I have never seen it and I'm not sure if its still up and going.

Synth,
I work in Dyce. I used to go offshore regularly when I worked for Sparrows. Some of those platforms in Ewan's link were home from home.

I remember seeing a platform had a track set up. I can't remember which one. Is it yours?
