Tanks & Trifles

No its not the title of one of those dreadful but strangely compelling movies you can get on the Sci-fi channel. But some work I did earlier, and have managed to combine two hobbies together...well sort of!

Ta-dah ....The mother of all trifles......

I'm not really what you would call a dessert man. But one dessert I have always enjoyed is the humble trifle, but have never made it. So today I popped my trifle cherry....oh err! This monstrosity was scratch built with sponge, swiss roll, jelly, custard, cream and strawberries. The pink sprinkles were my youngest daughters idea...honest. Okay it may look like its jumped straight out of some 1970's recipe book, but I can tell you it tastes good. Yum, yum.

(The 1/72 tanks are just for scale purposes and not to be eaten)

Meanwhile on my other workbench...

Progress is well under way on a third dwelling for my OIF project.

Thats it for now. More to follow....    


  1. Superb on both fronts, but I'm now off to the Sci-Fi channel to catch up with some pudding based movies!

    1. Thank you Sir. I can recommend Tiramisu vs Tarantulas from Mars.

  2. I think trifle has come back around again. I for one welcome it back. ;)
