With the constant arrival of a good few from Modeller's Haven Online forum and the flow of beer I'm afraid it all became a bit of a blur. But it was great to all meet up and have a laugh whilst talking modelling bollocks even if some of us had to retire for the night at 2000 hrs. Yes you guessed it that was Brian!
Onto the show proper on Saturday and it started promisingly enough with some early interest at our stand. This year the halls did seem slightly lacking in both clubs and traders although there was still plenty to see. But by about lunchtime it went really quiet and didn't pick up for the rest of the day. However it was good to chat to people and meet up with old friends again.
Competition entries where also light however the standards where high with some cracking models on display. Paul B came away with a very well deserved gold and best of show, so worth the trip all the way from Germany I'd say.
Stash additions for me were restrained with only the acquisition of the Retrokit Belgian JPK90 on my hit list. Expect an in box review of this soon, and a couple of diorama bits & Chally 1 book.
So a good day all round even with the lack of visitors so thanks to the show organisers for all the hard work they put in to make this event happen.
