TELFORD! Another year done...

Recommended Posts

Thanks chaps.

Had a blast this weekend. Fantastic meeting many LSP'ers and chatting with them. We obviously forgot about the 4 o'clock meeting?

When talking to Thomas and his lovely wife I forgot that he is Wurzacher who so kindly sent me the SeaFury decals last year. The penny dropped much later. Sorry Thomas, you are a great guy.

Another highlight was meeting Mr Hideyuki Shigeta of Zoukei-Mura, another charming person who, through his interpreter, showed me what I understood to be his next release (sadly, NOT the UHU - Revell beat him to it so it's been put back a while apparently) the Type 5 Kawasaki Ki-100...

Thanks! That jewel of info made wading through all of the other posts in this and other Telford threads worthwhile. ;)

OK - have transferred photos from my cameras - over 430 of them.

 

Need to go through and edit before I publish - probably in stages.

 

Still catching up after weekend - and I'm meeting up with Jerry tomorrow for a spot of sight-seeing - so doubt I'll get anything up until the weekend - sorry!

I missed the 4 o'clock meeting on Saturday, sorry. I was caught up in meetings and chats with various manufacturers and retailers. I met old friends and made new ones. Bumped into Jerry Rutman as I was rushing to another meeting, so I barely got a chance to chat with him. I missed the competition - by the time I got there on the second day, people were taking away their stuff. But, all in all, it was a great two days. Fantastic show.

Yep the lads and myself had a great time.

 

Thankfully I resisted boosting my stash bar a Revell Lynx ( thanks Nige for the negotiations), and some of the superb ZM Figures.

 

The lads walked away with a couple of projects so all in all a success for the household budget, This was despite Nige attempting to break my resolve with the offer of an F18 at the 11th Hour!

 

However.... following a discussion with Roy for next years 32 sig table, I now have a Mig 15 en route, soon to be joined by either a F80 Shooting Star, or F84 Thunderjet so post show purchases have ultimately upset the apple cart.

 

A superb show, a great turnout on the 32 sig table and indeed overall within the show. No photos though unfortunately.

 

Brian, I was only there on the Saturday, hovering around the stand like a bad smell, (although nobody pointed out a personal hygiene issue) sorry to have missed you as I wanted to pester you about your foiling technique.

funny how many people picked up the ZM figure sets - I bought the US nose-art 'artist' figure. By midday sunday most of the others were sold out!

I had a brilliant time for the whole week I was in blighty,largly because of the sainted gentlemen named Matt and Ian.but also because of a lot of others like Roy. Even got to wax loquasious over politics during our large dinner table gathering with no one breaking into fisticuffs!

Even bigger show this year with what looked like maybe 40% more hall space available. Lots of great conversation and as always,the cool local club stands. Great time with Paster John and Tin and the gang from Greymatter and many others. Lovely time pusuing one of my other passions,medievel buildings! Discovered one of the great hidden treasures of England...The Coteswolds!!

Can't wait to fulfil McAurthers' words'"I shall return"

Jetty glad that you enjoyed your stay in good ole Blighty.

Tried seeking you out at the grey matter stand but Mark and others told ME you had wandered off.so I missed you.

Maybe next time.

 

Hope the COTSWOLD gave you serene peaceful time..any photos?

 

The important thing is that you had great company, good food, excellent show and some down time to enjoy the pleasures of the rural England!
