I have noticed in magazine "the how to" series of articles are not always self explanatory, a series of photo's doesn't always cover everything, you sometimes get to a certain point and are left scratching your head, How is that bit done then ? I'm not knocking magazine at all they are very good and without them i would not of built Pine Road to the standard that i have achieved. I am one of those people who likes to watch demonstrations at exhibition. i just find it interested to see how other people do it.
