Milton Keynes 2019
« on: March 14, 2019, 11:48:55 am »
ModelKraft 2019
Milton Keynes on 28th April.
Marshall Arena / Arena MK, Stadium Way, MK1 1ST


I believe we have a contingent going here while some of us are representing What If in Scotland that weekend. I've just heard that my London club do not have a table in Milton Keynes despite having attended every year, having applied and being verbally assured that we have a table.  :angry:
With that in mind it might be best to double check that we What-If Modelers have a space reserved.

Yeap. we are there. Ive looked at the attending club and sig list, and the floor plan thats are both on the MK webpage. We are on tables 91 & 92 next door to IPMS Avon.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

That's a bit poor mate, any reason given ?

Providing the trains are running I shall be there. First time at this venue so that will be interesting. Also be interesting to see if the new venue lives up to all the publicity emanating from the club via certain magazines. The old proverb beginning "Pride...." comes to mind for some reason.

Still hope it turns out o.k. for all those making the effort  :thumbsup:

Glad you mentioned that, I'd have turned up at the old place and wondered where everyone was!  ;D ;)

Sadly I'll have to pass on MK this year.  Work drags me kicking and screaming to Bangkok the day before.

Bangkok has memories of kicking and screaming for me, but it definitely didn't involve work  :angel: ;D

I'm actually surprised they let it in anywhere  ;) Not my favourite place, but then I don't drive and I don't think they allowed for that option when designing the place ?

With all those roundabouts it's fun in the wet in a sufficiently powerful RWD car.

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

It's fun in ANYthing with enough grunt, for some reason the locals don't seem to know what 'accelerate' means.  ;D ;)
