    I'm voting for Humbrol Enamels, I did mine a few years ago and I think it looks ok, just take your time and use a decent quality thin brush. Keep tissue handy to wipe any excess immediately and you'll not need thinners to clean up.

    Here's my Holdsworth

    Who is cycle training aimed at? I consider myself a 4th Dan cyclist going on the ratings system above. And once I reach a state of 'Enlightened Competence' nirvana should I teach others the way?

    I'm not local to London, is nirvana achievable through homeopathy?

    Don't drive a truck in Russia, there's mental cyclists around.

    Did you heat the original saddle and then apply it firmly to your gooch to get that custom shape dong crevasse?

    Not porn, not anti, just a good, functional, cheap and reliable knife that makes for a sensible portable blade, maybe that makes it the Pompino of the knife world, but that's no bad thing

    I bought a number 9 opinel a couple of months back in haut savoie where they are made. Cost under 10 euros and is just nice

    On my way home today in I nearly got flattened by a Landrover and his trailer. I think the driver had forgotten that they were towing as, once past me, they began to move back towards the kerb. This caused the trailer to come perilously close and I had to mount the dropped kerb to avoid a squishing.

    As ever in this thread, I didn't notice the number plate due to forgetting to notice it. I did manage to bellow 'Wanker!' and make the corresponding hand signal for the driver's benefit though.

    The Transit driver following the Landrover gave me a cheery thumbs up, but I think he was commenting more on my quick-witted escape route and robust Anglo-Saxon driver rating skills, than on my health.

    Without good reason, such as sheep rescue on open moorland

    Cheers dude, I'm not sure it's possible to frequent a nightclub as infrequently as I do.

    Is that a D&B mag in your lanyard pic? Didn't know such a thing existed.
