Well, you see lots of nice modes, you can buy almost anything to do with modelling, you are with like minded people  (well you hope you are?), you may get fired up for your next project and so on.
I attended the Huddersfield Model Show with the club and had a great day, stoppedd for a meal on the way hope, great banter and so on.
No down sides then?
Well one or two, you may get damaged by a felllow modeller, you may not get on with some of the people, your models may suffer a little in transit.
Well most of these things did not affect me, then I got home and dropped a box on the way up stairs, the photographs will show you the rest, yes, it was the 1/48 Airfix landrovers and so on. B - - - - - !

General Discussion / A Blast from the past

i came across these photos whist searching for some plans for Gerry.
These must be from an early visit to North Shields.
Cyril was into Tanks, Kevin into Chipmunks and I was building helicopters, the guy many of you will not know is Malcolm, he built Polish aircraft, buses and cars in 1/32 scale.
Hope you find this slightly interesting.

Anything to do with the letter "C".
So it could be a cruiser, a corvette, a Cavalier, a Chieftan tank, the call sign could be C or it could be a mark xiC and so on.
Hope this helps.

Its a sad fascination that you have with the Spitfire.

Nice to hear that you are back to some modelling. I've got one of these - quite a nice kit I seem to remember.
All the best.

I have some information regarding this, I was going to raise it at the next meeting. Peter rang me before the last meeting, but the meeting had too many other things going on.
 Please contact me personally if you need to know before then.

The Citroen was an old Matchbox one that was just the right scale - I think it was one of my sons!!!!

This topic set me thinking and I just had to visit my archive ( well it is a box where I keep all my old photos).
I built a few houses for people in the dim and distant past.
Here is one.The house is on Marton Road in Bridlington.
As far as I can remember the construction was mostly plastc card with other bits and pieces, the scale was 4mm to a foot.
Hope this may amuse some of you.
The photos may not be brilliant as I had to scan them in. Yes, ok it was built before the age of digital photography. I even think that I got paid!!!!
The first photo is the actual house.
I even built a glass case to house it.

Memories of model railway days.
Strange scale 1:50?
Near enough to 1:48 if you wanted to include figures.
It does look good though.

House modelling is real modelling, I would be interested to see and hear how it went.
I have built several for people over the years.
