  1. Thanks Maru! I have been using the Trainline app and that is how I booked my ticket up to Telford so sounds like that is still the best way to get back to LHR on Sunday afternoon. Am judging again this year so that does take a bit of time out of Saturday afternoon - but hopefully not too much. Quicker trip to Telford this year unfortunately but happy to be coming back again. :-)
  2. I'll be helping to set up the SIG 32 stand on Friday afternoon/evening as well, and working a few shifts on Saturday when I'm not doing a bit shopping (VERY short list this year - but I say that every year. I am luggage space constrained this year however - thankfully!). The US Northern VA IPMS club folks are all staying at the Premier Inn at the top of the hill (not next to the train station). I think we have about a dozen folks over again this year. Telford is a much better show than our Nats, although Chattanooga this year was probably the best show we've had in the US in maybe three/four years.
  3. Looking forward to seeing you again Radu! CN
  4. LOVELY! See you there then Maru and you better not run and hide! Dennis, I may miss you on Sunday unless you are there early - I have to nip back to Heathrow to meet the S.O. who is flying in Sunday evening. Anyone know an easy and quick way to get from Telford to Heathrow on Sunday?
  5. I can't wait to see the first builds on this. I still have the Monogram kit in the stash (after having built something like five of them previously) and had no intention of building another one, but this could sway me... Chris
  6. Not to mention all of those missile options too!!
  7. Mike S has been working his 3D printing magic and there should be announcements coming out of Nats about distribution - I've sadly not been able to keep up with the news/pics/threads this time to know if it has been released or not, but I saw at our last club meeting what he's been doing and it is AWESOME... I'll see what I can bring to Telford. How did the LSP meet yesterday go? We DEFINITELY need some pictures of the guilty parties!. Chris
  8. Yes! Will see you in Telford (pending any further dramatics!)
  9. Thanks everyone! Just got her home yesterday and the appointment to meet the surgeon and discuss plans is this afternoon. Thinking of you all in Chattanooga!
  10. Folks, I am VERY sorry to say that I will miss Chattanooga. My 83 year old mother took her first flight in 30 years to see my oldest son and visit Portland, Maine. Less than 6 hours after arriving, getting the scenic tour by my son, she mis-stepped off a curb and broke her leg in 3 places. I'm currently in Portland, bringing her home tomorrow (Monday), but I'll have to stay around for a few days to get her settled and get her surgery scheduled (she wanted to come home to Virginia for the surgery). Really sorry to miss Nationals and seeing you guys but I hope to see you all next time. Telford maybe? Looking forward to seeing LOTS of pictures and hearing your stories. Who is getting Eduard's Mustang???? Cheers, guys. Chris
  11. Really looks AMAZING!!!! Super nice work and the detail is terrific. LOVE the Airscale adds actually. Nice stuff that you did exceptional work with. That seat and belts are a work of art onto themselves... Not to mention the IP....and Cockpit.. and.......
  12. I'm in for the Friday dinner, hoping judging doesn't go all freaking evening. Let me know when/where. Chris
  13. Somehow I missed that this aircraft you are building is from the 447th BG out of Rattlesden. A close friend of mine was a pilot with the 447th (The Blue Hen Chick of my avatar) and I have a lot of his materials, including copy of his mission log , the group's published history book, and a post-war 447th BG calendar from the 447th BG association. Let me know if you need anything. Chris
  14. Mike: Looking forward to the pictures!
  15. Thanks Maru. Guess will have to wait to see you until November in Telford. Not taking any excuses this year - you HAVE to make the trip!
  16. This weekend is supposed to have killer heat and humidity across most of the US. Sounds like the PERFECT excuse to stay in and get on our builds (and by 'our' I really mean 'mine')....
  17. Yeah yeah yeah. 'I got married' ... SUCH a lame excuse.... Brian, Actually, thrilled for you and congrats!! Definitely will miss seeing you this year. Just means you have to come to Telford to make up for it. Tell your new bride you are taking her on a trip to London in the fall.
  18. I'll be driving down, so there Tuesday - Saturday (judging Friday). Do we have a LSP group meeting planned again or a lunch/dinner/drinks? Sorry, have not browsed all the pages of this thread so might have missed it. Sadly - my Duchess Arlene is not near complete so not bringing her down, but my club, NovaIPMS will have a display table so I'll bring a few things down for that. Please stop by and say hi or hopefully will run into everyone at the LSP meeting. Anyone going to the space center on Thursday (kills an ENTIRE DAY!!)? My SO is flying back on Friday so I'm free Friday evening after judging... Chris
  19. Bring what you have and put it on the LSP table for everyone to gawk at. Give 'em (and us!) a preview for next year!
  20. Amazing work! LOVE following along. Are we going to see this beauty at Telford this year? Chris
  21. You ARE bringing all of this to the next NoVa IPMS meeting in July, right??
  22. MARU, you are not coming over this side of the pond this year?
  23. Great subject and really nice work! Thanks for sharing. Chris
  24. Looking good Sepp, your work is terrific and I'm envious of the Cricut. LOVE those muzzles. Who makes those please? Chris
  25. Your work on these books is amazing. Love to have it sooner rather than later, but frankly, I'll take it when you have it ready - I know it will be THAT good. Chris
