    The grapevine is telling me that my old mate Andy(aka tattooed)is going to commence the build of his Models By Design Biber next week...stand by for a superb build by a very talented sub modeller.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the build, mate..

    If it's anything like that trawler and your trucks, it will be way past all expectations, mate.

    This is the man to learn from, Geoff...without sounding patronising, but Andy is one hell of a modeller. I've seen some of his work, and it is awesome...he's got several models of the full size one's he builds for a living on display in the offices of boss people all over places like Arabia, etc. His attention to detail is amazing, so this Biber is going to be one hell of a model.

    Morning son,

    I have well over 24" of 2mm O ring cord sat here mate, that should be more than ample for two end caps. I'll ask my carer to get it posted off soon as she can.

    Rich
