Re: Aurora "Scotch Lad" plastic assembly model

I found this large figure at a hobby store that carries a wide variety of items. There isn't an identifying mark on it and I'm not really versed on posting pictures on here. I've repainted a number...

Re: Aurora "Scotch Lad" plastic assembly model

Unless one custom makes their own figure you are at the mercy of the model or figure presented. Take it for what it is and do the best paint job you can. I purchased only one, the PM, of a pair of 8"...

Re: Poly pipes.... Opinions

I'll second on Dunbar poly's on sound, your bag and reed preference will be your own but hybred bannatyne and Kinnairds are my choice in near freezing, poor weather.

Re: Your 2019 setup?

I thought I'd pull off something different at the Sgt's. Mess dinner by playing a 1950's vintage Hardie blackwood chanter with a big old ivory sole. A nice, rich, warm sound for in and out the head...

Re: Grey's Anatomy Solo Piper Tune?

Re: Drum Major goes for a drink

Yes, I know this was a "second go around", I was appalled while on the floor but it was unstoppable while in progress. Over, done and gone.

Re: Henry Starck - bagpipe maker - gathering information

Les Cowell turned my set in the early 1950's and the projecting mount is identical to the one on the left. I've had this set for 20 years now and have had communication from Martin on this.
