Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
This week we have another Knuckleduster figure. The range is being added to all the time but sadly at a rate I cannot keep up with. Some of the latest figures are based on the spaghetti westerns with figures from the Clint Eastwood “Dollar” series and of course the “Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. They also have figures from the film “Once Upon A Time In the West” starring Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson, possibly the best film of the genre.
The figure we have here is based on the character Ramon Rojo from the film “A Fist Full of Dollars”
It was my intention to post a load of photo’s of Telford but as expected a week on and there are plenty of YouTube and Facebook posts now out there. The presentation of these is far better than I can deliver so if your interest extends beyond this post then just search under “IPMS Telford 2019” and a whole lot of goodies should come your way.
My personal favourite is linked below. The guys voice is a little irritating but 1 minute and 35 seconds in and you’ll understand why!
Telford 2019 has been and gone and it has already hit me that I must plan for next year. More than that I need to plan quickly for January 2020 and the Plymouth Club annual competition. Having entered what I consider some of my best work into the Telford competition these models must now be retired leaving me … bugger all for January! Quite how I am going to achieve this with so many others things going on right now I do not know but I will will revisit my retirement strategy to see what can be done!
The good news is I have identified figures/models for four of the six categories I am planning to enter and have an idea for the fifth. As some of these will result in Christmas presents I am going to have to wait a little longer before I can get started. It is too early to say for sure but I suspect these builds will be a key feature of my 2020 blog posts.
The good thing about next year is I will be able to look forward rather than backwards, something about 2020 vision!
This Weeks Top Tip
Most women need a little reassurance so when she says “Oh, you want to see crazy?” Reassure her that you do not!
Well It Made Me Laugh …
This week TIM has been listening to …
The Rolling Stones and Brown Sugar. Hard to resist a bit of Mick and the boys.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Taxi Driver” starring Robert De Niro.
A journey back in time when De Niro was cool and appeared in films like Godfather 2, Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter and Goodfellas. Sadly now he’s just a Focker.
Until next time.
