When is this show?  So far I see no news reporting, photos, info on what may (or may not be) on display.
Surely if it started today there must be something model boat related to write about?
I hope this thread is not going to be another "Blackpool" . . .
Still unsure whether it is worth 4 hours driving in the rain to go to.  By Monday, too late !

If it is two hours each way, as it was for me, then definitely well worth it. Hundreds of first class models on display plus a lot of traders. What's not to like?!

Hi Bob


Started today at 10am and had a steady flow of visitors to the exhibition centre. Plenty to look at, and buy!
Some very good quality models on display, good food and coffee, and some very nice new models being shown by the traders- Ron's new TBD, mount fleets new Mk 1 chariot, and if you are interested the aluminium man is there selling litho plate. Won't say where my camera is but would have uploaded some pictures if I had remembered to pick it up! :embarrassed:

Some great pics that Nick never took, mind you I can let you all into a secret, there was a stranger wandering about in a very Conservative shirt.....with a tie, who just might have had something to do with it  O0 beware this man in disguise he is an impostor....bring back our leader.
Today am going to have a look at some of the boats in the pics, and with luck eat cake......
Twas a very busy day yesterday, I was defo down on my tea intake, thank heavens my trainee on the stand was at hand (cheers Stav)
Chat with all later
 
(I can eat cake this year, have new knashers, had to turn down such kind offers from Martin at MACs mouldings to make a set out of boat fittings, and Guy who was more that happy to do a Lego set  :D :D :D
