    P29 is off Cirkewwa, P31 is by Comino. Doesn't look like the P29 at first glance.

    thanks mate, as do I.

    I took part in battles all over the UK, also in Ireland as in the one in the pic (Irish Times), did the Jorvik viking festival a few times, great fun, also as an Archaeologist I have excavated a few viking sites in Scotland and in Wales and am published as a specialist in Norse pottery from the Norse period in the outer isles

    @Helmut Visor, I'll be eager to see some photos from your Red Sea liveaboard trip! What is the liveaboard you'll be on? I'd love to get your opinion on it when you return. :grinning:

    War face, check.

    Lots of upset parents whose shop bought plastic stuff all broke on Robert’s sword, shield, and armour... PRICELESS!

    Thank you!

    The instructions for the shield were 'make a cardboard shield'.... So 4 layers of corrugated cardboard cross laid, cover in an old bit of dust sheet, paint in white emulsion, pick a design (Robert wanted Toothless from 'How to train your dragon'). I marked it out and Robert painted it.

    It hangs on his bedroom wall now.

    Very nice!!! Telecaster bridge is an interesting addition...
    Is your playing as good as your craftsmanship?

    I had a Gordon Smith GS1 years ago. Played so well, super light low action.
    Lesson to self, don’t trade guitars in!!

    That one, and the Japanese Epiphany Riviera. Damn, that thing sounded sweet. And pretty!!
    I sold the Epiphone to my best man, needed funds to finance an ill advised wedding. 21 yo me knew everything. 52 yo has learned a few lessons along the way, and I s happy to know fuck all.
    He still lives at home with his mum, and has probably still got the guitar. next time I come in to an unexpected lump of cash I'll get in touch and rescue it!
    Until then, I'll knuckle down and get some more hours into my fingers on the acoustic.

    I'm midway through a restoration of another Epiphone that belonged to the kids dad. I'm restoring it for the obvious connection to their dad, but also because it was once played by a certain Mr G Harrison!
