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.

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.
