The above title relates not to more studio plumbing, but to my own; I had become aware for some little while that all was not quite right with my internals, and a visit to the GP has confirmed I have a problem, in fact two problems that will require surgery, and so I am waiting to be called into hospital on two separate occasions for surgery. This has come as bit of a blow as I had been looking forward, indeed planning, some trips into the Brecon Beacons to do some landscape painting; part of my overdue return to painting on canvas in 2020, and the plans for this now look likely to be delayed, as I cannot imagine that I will be in a fit state to go walking up mountains for a while.
In the meantime I have been busy on the military diorama which is nearly completed, and I am now applying the finishing stages; soon I will post more images and bring that particular project to a close. The Matisa support van in 7mm is also nearing completion and will form the subject of more images in the near future. The resotration of the LMC 2-4-2 suffered as a result of all the earlier studio upheaval, leaving me no space to work upon the loco for some time; however, I can get back to the bench now that all the cardboard boxes and clutter has finally found a new home, so I hope to provide some updates on this loco soon - all the above, of course, depends on what happens when I go into works to have my internals overhauled, and what sort of convalescence I need afterwards.
As always, having good health is the cornerstone to being able to do anything...look after yourself.
