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...

Good to see our hobby spanning the generations. Superb display as ever - Emma I rea...

Re: International N Gauge Show 10/11 Sept 2022

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...

IPMS Stafford 'Stoke' 2022

The SIg had a great day out at Stafford yesterday. Huw, David, Tim, Emma and YT managed to show nearly 250 models (a record we think - possibly more as some of Tim 'n Emma's dioramas counted as one but had several models on!) Emma's delightful buildings attracted a lot of interest, and it was notice...

off piste

Inspired mostly by the the work of Tim 'n Emma I've had a break from the usual stuff. Full disclosure. I found a damaged 'Gundam' type model I'd built years ago at the bottom of a box and thought I might give it a refurb. The 'head' had a full rebuild - I had it figured as a 'sighting and sensor' un...
