Ferrero Rochere Chocs / Mothering Sunday

Did you know...

That when Mum has eaten the chocs, the empty plastic box is compatible with Styrene and its adhesive.

The Wheelhouses of my Springer Tugs are made from these.

Just primed a 4ft Barge for my Springer to push.
I need some ideas for a load or somethingorother,maybe a fuel supply barge.
Another idea I had was to make the load reversible, ie turn it over so that I have 2 barges for the price of one, if you get my drift.

Another great idea!! 8) 8)

There's a few ideas in the 'Barges' Board that may peak your interest.
Towboatjoe has come up with some really cool builds there!!

A friend of mine, on his last day at work for a company, took in a box of Ferrero Rochere chocs and placed them (opened) on a table for people to help themselves to......

What he didn't tell anyone, was the fact that he'd doctored them slightly - They were actually brussels sprouts dipped in chocolate :D

How about a Ferrero Roche Barge........Different and handy when you get a little peckish!!

Hallo, I have used ferrero plastic boxes for years, you have the benefit of eating the chocs first unless the better half gets there before you.

For extra browny points, buy the good lady a box of chocs and when she has eaten them all, come up with an idea to use the empty box.... ;D ;D ;D A win win situation.. :D :D
