Milton Keynes Show 2018
« on: March 21, 2018, 04:50:57 pm »
Are we showing at the MK Show this year?

It's on the 22nd April, pretty soon after Cosford, but it's one of the best shows, even if the café/restaurant has gone rather downhill in recent years.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Would love to be there but will be in British Columbia.  Name dropping, I know.
Instead I'll have rummages in Imperial Hobbies and BC Shavers.

Magic.  :thumbsup:

But will you have that monster tank built by then? If so it may be a waste of time for the rest of us to come as there won't be room on the stand, for our models, or even us....  :o ;D ;)

Just checked the MK web site. There is now a plan up. We are up stairs just inside the canteen hall, facing Coventry & Warwickshire.

Hannants Colindale will be at the show, so you can pre-order for delivery at the Show and get 10% off.

Just put a little order in, which will save my feet next Sunday.

Well assuming I make an early start I should be there about 10:00am. Bringing a couple of kits for the stand, about as much as I can comfortably transport. I know what I want and even if it's all available, a highly unlikely occurrence, it's not much. Must be going soft ?

Only problem is that for someone South of the River the M.K. club couldn't have picked a worse weekend. F.A.Cup semi final - Chelsea v Southampton, so both sets of supporters will be travelling through London, it's also, in case you haven't heard London Marathon day, so transport will be extra busy  :unsure:

Everyone have a great time at MK, y'all.  Looking forward to the pics and gossip!
Sorry about the transport Chris - the good news is that my daughter did the London marathon for the first time today (her first marathon too) in 4:44:43.
