Nigel, you're gonna have a lot of catching up to do on your TV shows. How long have you been on that ship now?

That's a lot of overtime! At least you can say you haven't lived your life in a cookie-cutter 9-5 job! Best of luck getting home soon.

I've never had a 'proper job' !! What's it like ?

All my working life has been mixed up with wars, revolutions, gun-running, oil-battles, embargoes .... they seem to just crop up ! My two sons in UK keep at me to write a book ... but I'm no author.

Yes - I can say I've had an interesting innings ... and I'm not finished yet !

Chellie ... Please don't extend for me ... I really appreciate the gesture but I think it a bit unfair on others who expect to complete a competition.

We have a stupid situation just come up where demands for money are now being made ... preventing my departure and completion of my work. We have no idea what outcome will be ... we are now trying to 'force' immigration issues to solve it.

I will be building the Tu144 ... and a full scratch-build listing will be made as I usually do ... that's my reward.

Cheers
Nigel
