Enjoyed the show very much till I came home and saw Yewgarths posts and saw all these boats I did not see,my main critism of this is WHY oh why were there was NO SIGNS  to tell show goers where to go.....yes  you can not please everybody but to see pics of these boats I did not have the chance to see left me rather annoyed to say the least.....All I knew about were the ones in the hall where the traders were. This was my First visit to the show...MMMMM would this little critism prevent me from going again HECK NO and ill make sure I see everything next time.

Some pics...sorry didn't take many as was busy talking to friends



















OH and to PROVE GHOST is alive and kicking

thank you gentlemen for posting all these photos of such wonderful ships, tanks even land rovers.

I must , one day try to visit the show as it looks idyllic in such a lovely setting, and such a wonderful variety of models as well.

I just thank you on behalf of those unable to actually physically get to such shows for posting all these wonderful photos of the shows.

In my humble opinion I don't know how anyone can say that there wasn't enough to see is beyond me, as it would have taken me the whole weekend to view it all.

Thank you again.

Jim.

Thanks for the pics guys, yes its me, yes I am still around and you thought you'd escape me....

NO.

I would have had pics to post however sadly I cant post the pics i took as my camera fell into the lock and is lost, Thanks to Ministeve for trying to fish it out but sadly the pics I took are lost.  (enter censored language here!)  Great to see the Red Oktober is around, and i think thanks to a visitor from Canada, will be safely in vancouver by the end of the week before going to Australia. 


ps: thanks for the pic Larry Longbuild.  :)

Great photos folks  :-))  a shame about the lost camera!


 Thanks for a great weekend Steve and everyone who put it together. I really had a great time as always, it was great to see some familiar faces, and to meet some new friends too.


 Also, I'd like to thank especially the guys who helped me in and out of the water with the big 45. I'd have been stuffed without you lot and I owe you all a beer! I may live to regret that  {-)  but next time you see me, remind me and I'll have one on the bar for you.


 Cheers all! I'll upload some photos later in the week.  :-))

HI Essex done it for years with no problems along carrying the club display stand. I made a rack for my car the club stand goes underneath and the model go on the top. The models are then packed  using the old toilet roll working from the car edge inwards and at the bow and stern works for me every time. Also handy if you get caught short. I would like to thank Steve and all at the Ellesmere Model Boat Club for the hard work that goes into making the event possible. Our club stand was kept busy lots of questions and positive feed back trade support again proved a success. And I am sure we would all hope this will one for the calendar in 2017.
