Think I figured it as about 22 hours driving for me. 

And there's me moaning about a 4 hour train trip to Telford
Decals my @r$e!

Posting models to a show could be a possibility.
I once posted a completed car build to Florida, had it entered in a show and then had it posted back to me.
We could do similar if we got our collective acts together.  Obviously some models are more conducive to being boxed up and posted than others (and the wise man's saying applies - if you can't drop kick it down a flight of stairs than you haven't packed it properly).
If I find I am able to make it over to the Adelaide expo next year then I am willing to take delivery of a number of international models to take with me.
We would just need to start getting organised well ahead of time.

Bravo.  I have a couple heartier things in mind. I'm down.

Thank you both, Chris & Steve! :bow:


I haven't taken any closer shots because they'd show up too many of the errors. The hinges of the wing folds, in particular, are pretty dodgy but I do have a plan to fix them - just not now. ;)

If that's your idea of 'dodgy' I don't want to see a GOOD one of yours until I've had some notice and I'm sitting down!  :o

If you look not-too-closely at the top picture, you'll see the whopping big gap between the rear hinge posts, almost all of them have that gap to some extent & it does need fixing, sometime in the future. ;)

Oh yeah, I got out my zillion power electron microscope and took a look.

You're right, the gap is huge, must be at least 3 angstroms.....  ;D ;)
