Re: What have you just bought?

The lighting under which you view the comparision will affect how they look.

Pigments react differently to the light they are viewed under so try to use the same type of light that you have in the room where you want them. IE. If it's warm LED or daylight then try the match under the same.

I remember this effect when I replaced the wings on a red car and sprayed them from an aerosol can. Under daylight they were an ideal match, under sodium street lights (yellow, almost monochromatic) they were obviously different.

Sounds like a great trip, hope it lives up to expectations

Re: What have you just bought?

Elementary The Complete Series, and SAS: Rogue Warriors on DVD.

My Blu-Ray & DVD collection is now 1,011 titles which is made up of 2,129 discs (The box set above is 1 title).


That works out to 299,536 minutes, or 208 days 16 minutes.

So if I started to watch a midnight on New Years Day I'd finish on July 27th (56.82% of the year complete)

Disney plus and Amazon Prime Video for a year. Thought I'd shell out whilst I still have money to help keep the kids entertained whilst housebound.

First phone for our daughter, a few weeks before her birthday but now the school is closed and she is off to high school in the autumn we don’t want her to start losing contact with friends.
