Hi folks,

Just wondered what else others get up to in there spare time other than model boat building and sailing Very Happy

Here are a few of my other interests 2thumbsup

Brewing beer Thumbup this is my old set up, I'm in the process of building a completely new set up. this shot in in and old caravan I have but had to get a little more scientific so have built a totally new room in and onto my shed. All I brew is a full grain mash, definitely no kits but kits are a good way to start Very Happy



The boil.


The results.


Classic cars is another, started life as a mechanic so it natural that this hobby follows.

Austin A30 1955.


Used in all weather.


Ford 300E van awaiting attention, this is truly a barn fine, mother and daughter were to only previous owners.




Also collect Automobilia.

 









and much much more Shocked

Yeah it was but after the 3 laps I could feel my heart beating real hard in my lower spine I couldn't even put it back on the trailer my wife had to and she drove the 120km home.
I really enjoyed the build & only did it because other Renault car club members said it couldn't be done never could let a dare go by lol!   

If you would like to view other pic's click on a pic & it will open the photobucket folder of all my Renault stuff.

Great piccy’s, you didn‘t build it on the kitchen table then.

A dare!!! always the proverbial red rag!
We are amongst the blessed few having a multi tasking wife. flower 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup

Sept 2008 I had major surgery with 9 months experimental aggressive follow up chemo.
July 2009 my wife knowing we always supported one particular w/end model show.
Friday morning she hitched up our 4 berth touring caravan packed in some models off we went.
Arriving at the show camping park mid afternoon, she then set it up including the awning single handed.
Saturday pre show set up our models on the tables.
Sunday pm end of show packed everything in their transporting boxes.
Back at the campsite took down the awning with help from friends.
Monday midday hitched up and drove back home.
That was the first time she had towed anything with the car let alone a sizable caravan.
Wives flower particularly if they are modellers as well. Arrrh bliss. 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup
