Love that Chevelle! It'd have been a real hoot on the strip, specially if it had won!  :thumbsup: ;D

Not so much now, but there's still the odd one knocking about.

IPMS (UK) Coventry & Warwickshire did an entire "Pretty in pink" stand for the UK nationals several years ago.

Every thing on the stand was pink in one form or another. Some real world others not so real.
It as a bit of an assult on the visual senses.

Why did they/we do it? At the previous years Xmas dinner, one of the partners quipped that we would never have anything pink on our club stand.
That was a red rag to a bull situation. so that was the theme for the next year settled.

On a side note there has been talk at the club, to do Pretty in pink II. weather it ever happens is yet to be seen.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Remember that well, it was a flippin' good display. Amusing how one or two members really had to bend the definition of pink though. I still don't think that desert sand 6/8 ?- wheeled Afrika Korps armoured car was pink though  ;)

Maybe it was all in the Eye of the Beer-holder?
