Thanks Ken. I'm still having fun mate, but it seems this thread just isn't the same any more? What do you think?

Anyway, here's another. My golden rule, is no more than 5 minutes to create.

I'll be back full time when I've finished my new kitchen and get a computer at work.

I know what you mean...I'm not sure if its a case of waining interest, lack of banter, other commitments or a combination of all three. Always difficult leading up to Xmas, work, commitments, shopping etc but we are a lot quieter than in recent years, with fewer regulars, and as we've said before, the thread can only work with ongoing participation, and contributions. I'm still here and will carry on all the while I feel there is still some interest, somewhere

David....how long is this kitchen going to take...ours took 2 days

Right. on with the challenge....

Good to hear mate! If you're still here, same country, time period and purpose as your last challenge Ken.

Banter

G'day Martin.

Anyone seen the movie Captain America?

Lot of Luft '46 looking machines in it - what was that pusher-prop fighter? (at the end of the movie). Massive diameter prop. Hollywood fantasy or German fantasy?

Ok, forget the banter.

Here's a photo and 3-view of the same machine. Night!

It's all the decorating mate, which I'm doing.

Four coats needed on new plaster - the structural stuff was finished last week. The floor floodlights are really cool.....

Problem with banter is that it takes two...at least!

Been in a meeting and have come back to see an image that is terribly familiar....just can't think what it is!! And I only looked at it a couple of days ago

Never saw Captain America mate, so can't comment on that one

So, your kitchen took two days did it?

How much did it cost you - 300 ?

Coffee break and it came to me...the Fokker V.1?

Do you think I'm made of money? Seriously ours was just an installation of the units/electrics, nothing structural or anything. Sounds like yours was/is a somewhat bigger job.

Afternoon Ken,

My coffee break now, pretty hectic here as usual!

There's not a trace of doubt that you're correct with the Fokker V.1 and as it's only 2am for Graeme, I suggest control is yours

Thanks Trevor...as you say it's definitely the Fokker V1 and I'm sure Graeme would support us continuing. Therefore here is the next challenge:

Back home now with a PC.

I'll second the Fokker V.1 so off you go Ken.

PS yes - the kitchen was completely gutted and rebuilt again from scratch, which has involved a complete rewire and total re-plaster.

edit - I see you're up with one.
