On The Workbench

1/72 Airfix Sopwith Pup. Had to do it, interest in other lock-down activities waning a bit.

A bit of archaeology from 1973, so it fits into my in-between years of kit buliding, when none in fact were being built.

Should be pretty straightforward, although it will seem like a 1/144 exercise as it's on the tiny side.  All one needs in one little pack  The only one I've come across which has jigs supplied for aligning the wings.

George Cross for NHS

I've noticed over the net that various folks have been suggesting that the NHS as an organization be awarded a George Cross.

The people certainly qualify for it and there is precedent (Malta, '...heroism and devotion... ' 1942).

Those involved are not just risking their own lives but the lives of their families too.

Awarded to the NHS but given in recognition of all those who put themselves in harm's way during this dreadful crisis.
