Hi all,

Its that time of year once again, the great modelling unwashed (literally in some cases 🤮) get together for a brew and a gossip, and to moan about Airfix's latest kit announcement 😂

 

I will be there Friday, Saturday and Sunday as I have no life outside modelling it would seem 😉 

 

It would be nice for a meet up if anyone is going 👍

Not going this year. The guy I go with will be sunning himself in Australia, or getting eaten by saltwater crocodiles!

And If I'm truly honest I didn't really enjoy last year that much anyway. Without the majority of the overseas traders some of the atmosphere has gone, plus I found the large open space in the middle hall rather depressing. 

Telford for me has always been a shopping trip for deals, or stuff I can't normally get easily. I spent very little at the show as deals were few and far between on stuff I was interested in. I wanted the 1/200 Yamato, but sadly I could have got it a lot cheaper online (I noticed all were still available at pack up on Sunday!). Maybe that was a good thing though as It's erm...er.... at best sort of a Yamato!

But hopefully the peeps going will have a great time. :thumbsup:

I’m here, day one been and gone - about to start day 2.  No plastic purchased!  A few enquiries about the resin parts I make though.  Might wander across to the Romsey stand and say high to nobody of significance!

If I'm not wandering the halls somewhere, I'll be on the Romsey stand, near the back of Hall 1.  I'm too big to miss......  :hope:

So do you know Steve Herridge then? He's a member of the Romsey Model Club and is a good mate of mine and my former "Man Wednesday" at shows lol. I don't think he's going this year but is trying to get me to go next year with him. See below for a very rare photo of him very near my stand but still not quite working!

Better go next year. Otherwise, Leo Enterprises has some tough guys. In the last football friendly against another company, they beat a defender and then went after the guy's family!

@BlackMike Models  Yes, I know Steve.  See him occasionally at club-nights (although he doesn't wear the pirate hat normally)....

@TeeELL  Sorry I missed you.  I must have been on a wander.  I didn't have anything new to display this year (long story), so my incentive to stay on the stand was low.

I still think we need our own badges or something so we can spot fellow "All-Scale-Modellers" at shows etc?  Just saying.
