Not sure which vehicle I shall have my driver use to drop me off for the show on the 19th.....

The Bugatti has a nice old old money charm but is maybe too dated, the G-Wagon makes me seem I am trying to hard to fit in with the Insta-gram crowd, and the Bentley is too pretentious....

I think I will go with the clapped out van filled with bargain table kits, some trash pickin' I did on the way, a broken 1970's Honda Motorcycle, and a cooler of cheap beer- the perfect vehicle for you average WHIFFER....

Is it within staggering distance of my house? Or a house? I'm thinking of the return trip!
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Thanks to the advanced tempero-spacial distortion field acquired by the Academy, limitless whiffers may attend the festivities without apparently  leaving their sofa/modelling bench/comfy chair..   Virtual attendance in this manner is calorie free, non-intoxicating and has been certified as "mostly harmless" by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Holes and Drains.

No JMN's will be harmed in the course of this event (despite the existence of some who deserve to be either beaten into insensibility with a rancid halibut or skirled into oblivion by the Troon and Barassie District Pipe Band)

Those attending are requested  to consider the comfort of themselves and fellow whiffers and in the unlikely event of becoming "tired and emotional" as the result of excess consumption of Twiglets, wines or spirituous liquors to act in such a manner as to cause least inconvenience for the cleaning staff.

Should the room start spinning about you, it is probably reality attempting to break through.  Remain seated until the entropic balance has been restored

The valet parking service reserves the right to refuse machines without a current certificate of airworthiness, M O T pass or those without clearance from Bureau Veritas or Lloyds Register.

Please ensure that you do not leave belongings behind at the end of the event.   Lost property still have a Morris Minor passenger seat, certain items of personal attire, two alpacas, a highly polished brown brogue (left foot)  and a complex manganese-unobtainium casting of unknown purpose left over  from last year.

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

Ah, THAT'S where it is!  :o

We've been trying to locate it for some months now, only having realised that it was missing when that casting's omega-wave signal dropped below the level we'd have expected for one located within our 'secure' storage area.

Questions will be asked concerning its intended purpose during last year's ceremony.....  :-\

For me a virtual attendance is anything but calorie free or non-intoxicating as I will be sipping my whisky during the ceremony.
That will give me an excuse in advance for any mistakes in the ceremony where all awards go to JMNs of various persuasions...

Perhaps we should have a new class in the future 'JMN of the year', to be selected from those who ask stupid questions, or make stupid statements at our various shows?

Viz the people who assure you that their Dad/Uncle/Brother used to fly one of your totally fictional models when he was in the RAF/USAF/SovAF/Armee de l'Air etc.  ;D

  The mechanism by which you attend is calorie free and non intoxicating ..................but what you get up to once  you are there is another matter entirely.   I would be the first to agree that sipping a measure (or two or three) of a single malt does add to the enjoyment of the spectacle

I'm guessing that ship's name is not "Just Read The Instructions"  ;D :rolleyes:

Taxi! Taxi! Anybody need a taxi to the awards show? All I ask is that you have oats available as payment for the horse.  ;D

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.
