    Very much a look alike of myself. A British soldier from ww1. From Peter Jackson's "They shall not grow old" ww1 documentary. Creepy.

    Thank you jethro. I'm just a relative novice at this kind of thing. A hobby I took up during that dreadful stormy wet winter of 2013 /2014. But it stems from an interest of mine in military history.

    A ww1 project of mine I was working at on and off over the last few yrs. 1 / 72 scale or at least the scale i was trying for with the 1/ 72 scale figures. Used plaster, cardboard, match sticks, ice pop sticks etc. Could be a bit tedious but I kept at it.

    Autumn 2018

    I love this time of yr when the weather is cold and crisp. However Nov can be one hell of a dreary depressing month when we have mild wet muck.

    Autumn 2018

    The last 6 days of Oct at my location failed to get into double digit temps. Very different from recent October's on that score. This Halloween was the 4th consecutive Halloween that was colder at my location then the yr before . 2014 the warmest Halloween i ever recorded 18.3c, 2015 15.9c, 2016 14.0c, 2017 13.6c and 2018 9.4c.
  11. Min last night of -2.0c. My coldest Oct night in many yrs I think. Dublin airport recorded it's coldest Oct night on record last night. Min temp there was -4.3c.
  12. Got down to -2.0c here last night, my coldest oct night in yrs. -0.9c the night before. Earliest airfrost since 2010. Hopefully bodes well for the winter.
  13. Last night I recorded a temp of -0.9c which is my earliest airfrost since 2010.
  14. Are you hunting today in the Hills
