Hi Skippers,


Don't forget it's Brighton Modelworld Show this Fri - Sun, 20-22 February.

It's at the Brighton Centre, which is right on the sea front between Brighton Pier and the remains of the old West Pier.
If you are visiting the show then please visit the boating pool in the main auditorium (2nd floor). We always enjoy a chat and there's lots of boats to see, including plenty of lifeboats and a very large 'Titanic'. Plenty of action on the pool including a demonstration from Chris Scott who comes over from France with his fantastic models.

This is a large multi-discipline show with every type of model you can imagine on show.
There are some great railway layouts and a huge Tamiya truck arena.
Look forward to seeing you.
Steve Dean

Tried to book Tickets to this Yesterday, was told they were no longer selling Tickets to the Sunday, just Fri and Sat - in case anyone was planning on booking in advance.

Hope to make it down on the Sunday anyway.

Many thanks to all the model boaters that took part in the show.
We put on some great set-piece displays on the pool with very large crowds watching. Highlights included a mass sailing of lifeboats, the James Bond Q boats created by Chris Scott, submarine demonstrations and a huge Titanic. The Tamiya Truckin guys brought a large crane over to poolside and we lifted a Coastguard Fire Boat onto and off the pool under radio control. 'Bertie' the talking swan was a huge hit with the children and was joined by 'Gertie' the goose and AFOR the Alien in his floating rocket.
Well done to everyone who helped make the boat pool a star attraction with the paying visitors.
