  1. Sorry, nothing there I'm after, but just to clarify, do you mean Friday 8th or Saturday 9th?
  2. Sad news: it seems the show has been cancelled for 2020. https://www.'the other place'.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235063138-east-midlands-model-show-2020/&tab=comments#comment-3490599 I for one will miss it, and hope they find a suitable slot next year.
  3. Very nicely done.

    RAF Serials

    This has never occurred to me before, but now it has, I'd be rather interested to know, if anyone can come up with an answer: why do RAF serials not use the letter "Y"? Take a look: http://www.ukserials.com/ There's no Yxxxx series; no VYxxx; no WYxxx; no ZYzzz. It lists some in the "XYxxx" range, and shows them as changed to "XZxxx". My copy of this https://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Military-Aircraft-Serials-1878-1987/dp/090459761X shows those in the "XYxxx" range as "allocated in error" and changed. It appears that the military aircraft register is deliberately avoiding the letter "Y". Does anyone happen to know why? (Sorry, a genuine question, but pun intended!)
  5. Well, that's another Brampton show done, and a good one it was too. My purchases were a 1:32 Hasegawa F-5E - an old and faded box, but contents still sealed - a 1:144 Hasegawa Embraer 170 and some consumables. Yes, you have understood that correctly, I've bought an airliner! In fact, I didn't exactly buy it, I won it on the tombola. I'll need the magnifier for that scale! Good to see @Paul Brown again, and meet Dave ( @DC3), trust you guys had a good day too.
  6. Kit Set of parts from which a model can be created. Model A scale representation of a real-life object. The end product of assembling and doing other work on a kit. Build The process of turning a kit into a model. Should not be confused with each other, but often are. There, that's my pet bugbear out of my system.
  7. My particular favourites, but liked them all.
  8. In my case, just ask for me on the MK stand.

    There's obviously a lot of thought and research gone in to that: adds a lot to what's a good model anyway. Well done.
  10. I know there isn't an official Brexitmodeller presence, but is anyone going? I'll be there with Milton Keynes. https://sites.google.com/site/ipmsbrampton/brampton-model-show
  11. Very nice model of an unusual type.
  12. Hairy Stick: A hand of 16 in Pontoon.
  13. Go on, build it, you never know you might like it. Then weather it, and your journey to the dark side will be complete.
