I was there last year and I can't remember if we did or not!....:confused:

Sounds a good idea to me for this up and coming reunion. Let's see what our quiz master and all things raffl'y (Tony) and other folks think......
I think all we did last year ron was stuff our pie holes with tunnocks and eccles cakes!!! We could do another " stash swap" if you think it would go down well.

I thought the original idea for the "stash swap" was to give us a chance to build something we wouldn't normally buy .....

There have been a few such builds but not many - I haven't done mine and it's near the bottom on my 'to do' list. P'raps it wasn't as popular an idea as we thought it might be?

You could find the weirdest car kit and build it. If you fail to build it within 1 week you have to send it to me :D

Dave, don't let Tony read your latest post!....:p

Rather than a raffle, how about we all root in the bargain basement boxes at the show and find any kit for, say, under £5.00 and build it on here as a sort of fun 'Cheapskates only' build off?

I commend the idea to the House.

Lots of love,
Bessie Braddock M.P.

Time, I reckon, for a final head count of people definitely going to the show. This is so we won't be hanging around for members and to give 'Big Box' Dave and 'Builder's Bum' Tony, as much time as possible to hunt for stuff.

So, how about the usual 12 noon under the Vulcan wing. Which is to be found in the modern looking Hanger 2 (Cold War) Then Tunnocks and Eccles Cakes etc. in the cafe?

Also, how about a bit of fun, and hunt for any kit costing no more than £5 to be built on here?

Any thoughts, men?

And because of strange religious rules meaning Easter is late this year, hence so is our holiday, I'll be there too. A £5.00 kit. Right, curve ball, I think I want a tank ?

You know I like the stuff from the top shelf and Tony is always rummaging about in the boxes on the floor. That leaves the whole middle for you Ian! I personally can't see why you're moaning. :p
