Great Weekend At Telford

What a great weekend we all had, myself and the club. The stand theme for this year was "MK Gets Married", where the display was based on the saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.". 

Throughout both days, there was always a group of people in front of the stand, and this always increased when club members, Jo and Peter where at the stand with Jo in a wedding dress. At the end of the weekend, Jo said she had never been photographed so much in her life. In the competition, the club had a reasonable haul of prizes. Dave Scott got two Golds and a Silver, Tim Upson-Smith got a Gold and Silver, and I received a Commendation for my Sprint Car. In general a good weekend.

As for purchases, a big show like this is usually expensive, and it was. My requisitions for the weekend are as follows;

Add to this, various paints, glues, weathering items and general items, it was a great spending spree. But there was so much other bargains that try to tempt me, again, but I resisted with success. Now to get back to some model building.

Updates on current projects will happen over the next few days.
