BOLTON 23

Yesterday the SIG went to Bolton for the first show of the year. Huw, David, Tim, Emma and yours Truly had a great day. The venue is vast and somewhat intimidating in terms of 'How the heck do we get all our stuff in here' (remote car parks - long walks - stairs - more long walks .......repeat five ...

Re: C141

Nice job Huw....That camo I always thought rather suited the Starlifter. If memory serves it was called 'European One' or 'Lizard' (doubtless our colour correspondent can confirm - in my head I seem to think there were variations in the shade of grey, or indeed, gray)(Szorta Gray?) Somewhere I have ...

Lincoln (nee 'Newark') 23rd Oct 22

Completely new venue and very different from the Racecourse at Southwell. Typical school hall (long way from car park to models in the rain!) but we had a great day. Sadly Tim and Emma couldn't make it at the last minute but David Shaw arrived to our delight - it was really good to see him and as ev...

Hi Richard Re your control caravan I've been scratching around for reference material without much success.......and then a light came on. There is an example of the control cabin bit perfectly preserved and currently in use not far away - I just hadn't made the connection. Will get some detailed ph...

St Ives Sept 22

Two weekends running! Once more the famous three sallied forth (or possibly fifth - we are old) this time to Brampton's excellent St Ives show. Compared to last week we had a little more space but a completely different corner layout. We also tried to ring the changes a bit with our displays, I got ...

Spalding show September 22

Mike Terry and David Hart had a good day out in the Fens at this small but very friendly show. We were able to show Terry's fantastic displays to great advantage as you will see from the attached photos - the Concorde / Red Arrows formation is, incidentally, flying over Terry's house! Spalding, sept...
