Spent a superb day at this show yesterday and was very impressed with the builds on display covering all genre's except period ships. Not seeing period ships was a little disappointing but it didn't detract from the enjoyment had.

They had also set up a stall purely designed to get the younger potential modellers started on the great hobby. The idea was to provide a free cheap kit, plus the paint and materials needed to put together and to have them sit there and start assembling, under supervision of course. Those that didn't finish their kit were welcome to take the kit home and finish it there. Great idea and hope to see other shows encouraging our younger generation in similar ways. Certainly a lot of very excited youngsters at this stall.

Day started with a look round a full cockpit of the Jet Provost T4, this was something you could quite happily climb aboard and sit in, a great enticement for the little uns to have their pic taken complete with a fighter pilots helmet. A very popular display piece to have on the show.

Took hundreds of pics and far too many to show here but I hope you enjoy looking through the ones posted.... Some great ideas of dio's too.... Will post up some more later today when I've sorted through the rest of the pics....

Great day all round.....Drool Drool

Regards

Alan

Many thanks for those great pics Alan (drooling away myself!) I would guess that someone's favourite aircraft might be the English Electric Lightning judging from one of those photos!BigGrin

Glad it was a great day out!
