That's a shame. They had some good stuff at not terrible prices.
Google shows they shut down in March 2020. I'd assumed they just skipped the 2021 SMW cos of Covid.

I've already booked a hotel for next year. It's getting very expensive to stay in Telford now so I'm actually across the M54 in Wellington at the Whitehouse Hotel. It's half the price of the Mercure or Ramada and only a 10 minute drive away.

On the plus side there's a good few curry houses nearby!

I'm booked again at the Premier Inn for next year. £30 more than this year for the 4 nights. Problem I have is that not driving I have to be able to get to Telford by public transport and that whilst Saturday is normally ok, Sunday can be very iffy rail wise.

I'm booked in at Shawbury Towers permanently, for as long as I intend going to Telford.  ;D  :thumbsup:

I can't remember as the guy who built them wasn't there when I was. The wing came from two Hercs so the engines are actually Allisons, but it was very small. I have an idea that the upper fuselage came from a Comet, and the lower part from a piece of water pipe, but I'm not 100% sure.

Can anyone else remember please?

Pretty much bang on the Money kit.

As Lee said Its one of Eddies. One of the SIG's Yorkshire members. He hasnt quite found his way here yet, as far as I know.
I always hope for the best.
