What time should we get there for? Usually it's an hour before the public?

Given we are using public transport with it's usual Sunday constraints me and Hank won't be there till sometime between 9-30 and 10-00 I would have thought.

I don't know if we've upset somebody or what, but we are all on our own by the wall...

At least we're not cast into outer darkness in the other Hall anyway. It's been a while since we were in the main Hall.  :thumbsup:

If I read the map right everybody going to the cafe from the ground floor or the balcony is going to have to walk past you.
IMO an ideal location.

You read it exactly correctly Fred.  :thumbsup:

Sadly, if it's like last year, the Café will be a mere shadow of its former self. For some reason they cut their services there to the bare minimum last year.  :banghead:

Chaps I've thought long and hard about this and......work, domestics, etc, mean I'm giving MK a miss this year but will be devoting much of the day to actually doing some modelling (for the first time in many many weeks).  The decision is made with a heavy heart as I always enjoy the show - I do hope all of you who are going have no travel faffs to contend with, and have a jolly good time.  looking forward to seeing the pics.

A few thank you's first. Many thanks to Nick and Howard for their generosity towards my son Max. A big thanks to all for making Max feel part of the team.  He enjoyed the day and was happy at getting a medal for his He111 that he entered into the model competition. Thanks to Mike for his praise of Max's models.....high praise indeed.  I had a great day, loads of great models on display. I took inspiration for my thirsty little jets and tanker from the chap who had the awesome South American AF SIG. Some great stuff on that.

That display is the brain child of the venrable Phil Cater. Who occasionaly graces us with his presence under the id of "Rodger the cabin boy"
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

It was nice to meet you chaps. Maybe I'll have to keep a closer eye one which shows you're attending and maybe bring one or two of my what ifs along?

Also gotta post an apology of sorts as I said I would keep Kit and Trevor in tea and sticky buns but, the cafe was closed and the two vans o/s had the market an could chrge what they wanted. ....and they did. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask when he robbed you. Found out to late from Nick about a nearby shop.....hey ho.....
