Happy New Year to you all! I hope that you have had a fantastic holiday season.

I've spent the last few days visiting friends and family, now I'm back in 'The Office' and making plans for the new year. I've got loads of ideas for new models and new mechanisms that I want to try.

I've also got interesting plans for the website. I've had the subscription system up and running for around seven weeks now and I've been bowled over by the positive response. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed! I'm hoping to build on this initial success in the New Year with new models and new features for subscribers.

I'm really looking forward to the year ahead!

In the next few days I'll be releasing the Hoot model shown here. While I'm completing it I'm planning the next model and doing a bit of work on the website.

Happy New Year!
