I did spot a cheaper kit on ebay...but err...the listing showed a model of Batman and had it labelled as Superman


Dodgy, dodgy dealings that!!

I fell for this twice when I was younger, had a half built robot thingy on wheels, which when finished could supposedly learn it's way around your house, and part of a remote control Impreza WRX which could supposedly do 40mph lol. I can't remember if the magazines stopped or if I just lost interest.

The magazine was "Real Robots"

I collected the whole thing.  As did my sister ("Well, Sean has one..." no prizes for guessing who built hers...)


I did ask Mum to stop buying it, but she refused to give-up her £2 deposit for WH Smith holding them lol


My interest faded when it started needing 1,000 batteries.  That and I was doing two of the friggin' things.  Ohh...and they extended the magazine run about 3 times.


I never used it properly.  Late last year the whole lot was unceremoniously dumped in the bin!

:lol: blame lenny,
Myself and the toilet have alot in common, im almost 30 years old aswell i take alot of !Removed! and have difficulty processing some operations but i never kiss As s

 :lol: i thought we was friends   your rite there lol i used the empty front bedroom to spray up two mdf boot panels then spray glue like spider man and apply carpet,
Luckily there's no smokers in the house Wouff!! :lol:
I've to paint the bedroom and put in a new floor anyway.

Fog surrounds are looking great now Sean it was either spray them or your grills i suppose,
Are you selling the standard fog surrounds?
I need to either purchase fog surrounds or an ST bumper :)

There's a whole load of incredibly inappropriate jokes that could be made here...possibly even enough to make Vicki blush :blink:

I had a tin of primer and matt black leftover from spraying up some photo frames...and since the DRLs are in the house it made sense to do it that way lol

I haven't really got anywhere to put the old surrounds, so was thinking of selling them - first refusal to you mate!!

Best thing to use is a an old shower curtain in the garage. Pin it up and job done.

Sounds good!! I'm only missing a couple of things...

1. A shower curtain
2. A garage

Apparently, they still do come with them...but the drivers are contractually obligated not to use them...keeping them unused and new reduces depreciation apparently

#441298 Sticky Topic For Dashcam Videos?

Posted by SeanW on 02 January 2015 - 08:59 PM

Completely off topic (again)...

I was once sat in A+E with my ex-girlfriend when a Nurse popped into the cubicle next to us and said "I want to take your blood!" - was amusing because she was obviously of Eastern European descent. The ladies in the cubicle asked her where she was from..."Romania...Transylvania...why?"

Both me and the ex started !Removed! ourselves with laughter, as did the 2 ladies she was talking to.

Found out later that one of the other nurses had to take her aside and explain why it was funny - we couldn't because we were laughing so much.

She was a lovely nurse!

It dries to a very good, strong coat...unlike its namesake which despite looking slightly better for a lick of paint is still crap underneath lol
