Hello one and all, and from a Manxie back on that "wind blown rock" I'd like to pop up and say a great big thank you to all the Clubs and organisations that voted us tops.  The standards of display improve every year.   We will be back, but I'm sure we'll follow existing precedent.   We thank you too for the interest shown in live demonstrations, we'll certainly create more area for that on our return. 

Oh, I'm the handsome one of the pair on my "Repulsis".

Cheers guys, and isn't it great to see so much humour and wit on models and thanks to those Clubs that also included a junior section with the juniors present to expound on their builds too.

See you out on the circuit, Sandown next for me, aye, Kimosubby.

Five members went up on the Sunday and once again it was well worth the effort.

The various club stands were all to a very high standard, those Manx boys take some beating though!
The food was as always excellent, plus more than enough traders to keep people happy and they were more than eager to help us part with our cash.
My highlights from the traders were the Truckable Tug from SHG Marine, I dont even like these, but at 69.99 could well be tempted to buy one as a rescue boat/camera platform. The Mountfleet Chariot Human Torpedo, which looks like a winner, thanks to the time and effort put in to the two diver figures, which were of a very high standard. Finally an interesting time was had chatting to Speedline Models about potential new 'green' releases, and their USS Chocktaw Union River Gunboat, one of my all time favourites.
One little gripe...the nice lady singing those Forties favourites, excellent, enjoyable and so on..but could we have the PA volume turned down just a bit. Very difficult to talk shop with the traders around the pond. A similar problem was posed by the hovercraft, however there aint no volume control on them!
Still my favourite show of the year, well done to all concerned :-))

Like all the way, please. A predictable choice of mawkish old songs, sung mostly 1/4 of a tone flat and with a nerve-jangling vibrato. No doubt entertaining for the terminally nostalgic and tone-deaf but why did we all have to suffer? I hope she was paid at 1940's musician's union rates...........with 1940 pound notes.  >>:-(

Heaven forfend! Two twenty minute sets was enough. As much as time flies when you're having fun, the opposite is equally true. One chap standing nearby remarked that the last time he'd heard a sound like that was when he was standing outside an abattoir........ Harsh? Me??

And there have NEVER been bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover, unless they were being smuggled in by air. The Bluebird is a native American species, as were the geezers who wrote the song (ironically named Burton and Kent - how English!!).

As for little Miss Jones, what an absolutely lovely kid. Dave and Kelly should be rightly proud.

Well...


Its taken a few days to recover but what a brilliant long weekend! :-))


Met up with a lot of friends:


Martin (well he looked a bit like Martin!)
Steamboat Phil
Stavros
Mrs Stav (and Catherine)
Klunk
Captain Povey
Steve Dean
Shakey
Marmoi
The Long Build
Victorian
Chuffy
Bill D203


and of course met up with the traders too


Ron Dean
Dave Metcalf
Adrian Gosling
Dave Milburn (Inertia)
Andy Griggs
MACS Mouldings


and many many more.


In-between playing the game with Klunk when Phil's back turned, it was a brilliant three days of non stop talking, I think the only time I stopped was when I was planting the 'items' on Phil's stand. Bet you wont find those tins of beans until the Mayhem weekend Phil! {-)
Thanks to Steve Dean for allowing me to join in the Speciality Slot once again and to the organisers/clubs/traders for another brilliant year. :-))
Planning for next year already- you better have a lookout next year Phil! :}

A couple of my stand outs at the show, USS Choctaw and the disruptive camouflaged Aerokits PT Boat, bet that took some masking..

It's at the Exhibition Centre which is next to the roundabout in the lower RH corner of this map. For a larger scale view look for Leamington Spa, which is the nearest town and just off the map to the left. Coventry is about 11 miles directly North.
Unlike Dortmund it's exclusively model boats. The problem in recommending it as the Top Show is that very few of us have ever been to such shows outside the UK. I would say that it's probably the biggest and best purely model boat show in the UK calendar. Incidentally, there are full facilities (access, toilets etc) for disabled folk and there's usually a happy gathering of the jugglers, clowns and comic singers who populate the threads of this forum..................not to mention the pie and cake guzzlers.  O0

 :-)) Hello Guys
That is brilliant! so its near Lemington spa.? {:-{ How would someone who does not drive get there and are their B&B close by.I took a look at the links you kindly gave me and could see some useful advice,but first hand advice is worth a lot.

Since they removed all the nearest ferry links to UK, I will maybe have to fly but will have to get clerance to do this?and I suspect the show will be in November 2015 is this correct?

I don\t suppose their are any comparable shows earlier in the year!? and an all boat show is perfect for me.

many thanks Steve :}
