Title: NORTH EAST PLASTIC MODEL KIT SHOW - 8 MARCH 2009
Post by: John W E on March 08, 2009, 01:35:11 pm
Hi all,

Just returned from this show - hoping to take some aerial photographs to show the Vendors and people who have never been to this venue, the actual size of the place.  That plan turned out a total disaster - due to the fact that the viewing area 'up the stairs in the place - is armoured glass' and what I thought was a good photograph all that came out on the pic was the re-enforced mesh.  So that one was scuppered.

Here - though - are a couple of pics to show the skill levels - there were very few boats (as in kits) couple of good bargains mind - as in the Matchbox Corvette for 35 UK sterling pounds.   

Couple of tanks for wor Dicky - hey they would have suited you down to the ground Dicky.

here we go....  :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi John

You might have got away with the window shot if you did not have the flash on.

Failing that, do you have manual overide on the focus, so you can focus past the glass.
