“Peter remarked about the effects he managed to achieve – quite by accident – with the strange patterns in the paintwork.
He had been painting this model in his shed and left it to dry, which happened to be during a wild thunderstorm.
The next day he happened to notice the pattern you can see here.
Don’t know how it happened, must have been something to do with the static electricity of a thunderstorm – could be something to do with Scarsdale/Smythesdale area – could be something to do with Peter.
This model could actually be seen as a compressed Zeppelin!!!
…….but we won’t go there!!”
So if Peter comes to the next meeting looking like Dr. Emmett Brown, then we will know that he’s tried to get that paint finish again!!….RjT
