Obviously, as it's my show, I'll be there.  With many Spitfires and possibly quite a few other things too.

Anyone else going?

unfortunatly, I will be working that weekend. As ive been unable to book it off.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Enjoyable show, not crowded at all and I got most of what I wanted  :thumbsup: Nice to catch up with Lee, Steve, Willie and a few others.

I did take some photos, but they won't get posted until I return South in a week or so.

Excellent pics of excellent models.  Thanks for sharing Chris.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

One of Lee's mates. Longish grey hair and a drooping 'tash to match. Also sports an Anarchist's badge  ;D You would have met him at Telford
