I was going to have two model of the months for November, a father xmas hat and an angel but I have misplaced the pictures and I'm off to the millennium jam first thing in the morning so we are on to plan B now, father christmas which is a variation on one of Thelma's designs.

Hi Graham

Are you going to put up the instructions for this model, like you have in the past? I keep on doing some thing wrong and it looks funny.

thanks Twisty

Hi Twisty,
As so few, well one actually had a go I was hoping to miss posting instructions especially as I'm into the Christmas shows now.
It is based on a variation of Thelma's father Xmas that was posted with instructions here; viewtopic.php?f=19&t=860

Hopefully this will help? If not I'll try and post later. Can you post your effort and then we can give you some guidance on where it may be going wrong for you.
