    Good evening

    This is Carole Kevin's wife , he has locked himself in his modelling room as he is so distraught with the comments here , all I hear is sobbing and he won't come out ..biscuits don't work ...

    This could be divorce ......

    Looks really nice this Kev. Mind you, he's changed uniforms more times than I have. I'm surprised you have any paints left. Nice to see Carole making an appearance here too. Only sorry that you had to have a nervous breakdown in order to get her on here. Best of luck at the show mate. (y)
