Thanks Paul, should've recognized Chris Gibson and Tony Buttler though, being an Air-Britain member ---- plus having emailed them a few times   ::)
If I'm not building models, I'm riding my dirtbike

Thanks Harro - I thought it was Mike McEvoy but I wasn't sure I had the name right - not really spoken to him before.

Well he is the grandad of the What-if modelling community and loves project kits, he had three built models of the Fantastic Plastic Vickers Supermarine 559 on the What-If stand next to us

Telford is a great event, it has to be experienced to believe it.
The Project Cancelled SIG tables were great and it was an honour to have inspired so many great models (even the ones that weren't ready for the show).

Seeing a project represented in 3-D form is great, and having not built a model since my wonky Sea King circa 1999, the level of skill model makers like Joe and Geoff have constantly amazes me!
