I have an Eagle Book of Hobbies and an Eagle Book of Balsa Models somewhere which has the parkland peril in it.  A profile Boy's Own rocket ship hanging on two bent up paper clips from a fine thread strung between two trees. The little Jetex 50c clips on the bottom. The naughty schoolboy creeps out from behind a tree, lights fuse and watches as old biddies run screaming from the woods!

We laughed, bless us!

The Jetex Bluebird was not, shall we say, unidirectional, but great fun.  We used to light 'em up and aim for kids with Eezibilts in the hope of conflagration.
No such luck, though.
Ah happy days in Valentine's Park, Ilford.

It was great to meet some of you Mayhemers at my first Wicksteed, some were interested to see me committing "surgery" on my Spektrum TX after the liquid sunshine got in on Saturday - I got most of it working again for Sunday, which was lucky, much better conditions for sailing. Note to self, get rain cover (will that guarantee fine weather next time?). Thanks for the Chili, great stuff! :-)) I missed most of the altitude record attempt for gazebos as I was busy watching my IOM (NZL 32) getting knocked flat.

I have walked round Valentines park many times as my Girlfriend works in Ilford, and i sometimes used to go there to meet her. She now leads power walks round there as part of the healthy workplace scheme.

Have had a few in the "great spoon of Ilford" as well.

Ha,ha, I thought that might rouse some memories from somewhere.  I was born and raised in Romford, but the nearest lake was a bus ride away in Valentine's Park.  Couldn't use Raphael's Park in Romford because you couldn't get all round the lake.

My Sea Urchin would run all afternoon on a flat (shaped!) bell battery!
And we never got beaten up or our sandwiches nicked, like when we tried fishing.  Never again!

Still no captions, though. For most of us who can't get to these dos, it would be nice to be able to identify models, maybe even people I suppose!

Captioning 1,000 + photos is a bit of a task, but if you copy the photos back here  or list the names of the photos you would like more information on, I'm sure we can come up with some answers!  :-))

No, it's OK, Martin...you have a damned good point which I hadn't considered. I wouldn't want to do it, so why the hell should I expect you to??!!
