Nicky Hayden

Nicky Hayden, 2006 MotoGP World Champion and one of the nicest blokes around, passes away after a cycling accident.

I have been fortunate enough to see him race all over Europe since 2003. He will be missed.

220mph on a MotoGP bike, easy.
Cycling in Italy, too damn dangerous.

King Buggy Slow Progress

Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section.

I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the fuselage together and then mask the cockpit to spray the rest.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2

I went to see Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 yesterday with the family. Quite enjoyed it, but it did not grab me as much as the first one did.
The special effects are almost too much, there is sometimes so much going on that it is difficult to keep to with what is actually going on. It must be very difficult to act in one of these movies as it must nearly all be green screen on set. There are some good gags, but I did feel it tries too hard to be funny.

Still worth seeing.
