Espera's Ape Suit WIP



Finally got around to finishing off the conversion for the recoilless rifle for Espera's CAS-1-Mod 3 Ape combat armour suit. The delay being down to Real Life stuff, some of it health related that just got in the way of doing stuff.


Side view above, and rear view showing the inverted Heavy Gear engine packs.


Still the most pleasing part of this conversion is the M134 minigun on the arm. Labour of love to make that. Now all I have to do now is repaint the model. Easier said than done.

Back From Hols


Interesting map seen at a brocante (boot sale), which caught my eye.

We were lucky again to be invited to visit our friends in the south of France. And I can only say how grateful we were for their generosity in putting us up and taking us out for meals. We had a lovely time.

Temperature ran up to 36 degree centigrade, which for my American friends translates to 96.8 in Fahrenheit. So for many of my friends in America, a tad cool. But for a British Rose, hot enough. We swam in the swimming pool, which was the maximum extent of any exercise.

And at the same brocante I saw this old tinplate Hornby train set. Who would've thought.
