Sadly, not this year for me either. Catching up with the backlog of 2020 and 2021 holidays.
Will be OS, Barcelona according to the itinerary. ;)

Barcelona is a fascinating city.

Righto, I'll be onsite at around 0900hrs, bringing a number of models - all for Display Only as my printer is playing up; then I'm off to the Keswick Barracks Military Museum Open Day for a few hours to take a bunch of photo's of AFV's & stuff; then back for the latter part of the afternoon; & I'll be back for the Sunday session (but, maybe, not quite as early ;) ).

I intend to attend the Blackwood Rotary book sale in the morning and the model expo in the afternoon, after about 1400 hrs.  Would you be there, then?

Probably but, if I'm having fun shutter-bugging at Keswick, I may not back from the museum but I shouldn't be back much later.

We met anyway.  Guy, you're looking rather grey haired!  Interesting turn out.  Some interesting kits there.  One fellow likes MiG-29s!  Spotted a few of your ringers amongst the bunch.  Very nice. :thumbsup:

Good to meet up with you, again, Brian, even if only for a few minutes. I'm no greyer than last time we met, mate, my beard & hair are just longer. ;D  :thumbsup:

As my printer died I couldn't print out any "reference" material, so all my builds are "Display Only" (as I wrote earlier) but I did hear one group discussing my Sea Beau, however I didn't catch enough of the conversation to get the full gist of what they were saying (something about aircraft carriers of the era being too small to launch the Beau).

Got a few photo's of the model show & a few from the museum open day. I'll upload them to SmugMug tomorrow & sort them into usable & unusable during the week & post them a.s.a.p. Will be attending tomorrow, so there may be a few more builds to photograph before I upload & sort them.

And, now, we come to the photo's bit, about 170 in all.

So, to the delight of overscan (Paul) & the other global moderators, I won't post them all, just a selection & a link to my photo host site;

Some really nice stuff there Guy, thank you  :thumbsup:

I'm particularly drawn to the Cartoon style Dr1 and Camel for some reason.

Hope you had a good time.
