Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. I used to, can't say i've been doing it lately - must've grown out of it!
  3. I used to make models when younger. I have a model of a B24 half finished that I have not touched for about 20 years. I lost interest when I woke up one morning and tried to do some more work on it. I found that my fingers had suddenly turned into pork sausages and I got glue on everything so I gave up.

  5. I used to build WWII 1/72 planes but not had much time in recent years. Plus they never looked as good as the photos of the models on the box. Obviously some sort of fault with the model and nothing at all to do with my 'skill'.
