Hi Richard,
Sadly I've got to give it a miss this year as it clashes with my good lady's 60th birthday and there was no way I could earn enough brownie points to get a pass believe you me I tried. Hopefully I'll be there next year.
regards Jim

I'm thinking about it ,but I do need the stars to align, so we shall have to wait and see.
If they do align i will probably be there on the Sunday, so I will miss you , Andy, sorry.
But I shall be sure to look out for you, Richard,and Peter, at Sarnia Miniatures.
fingers crossed, then.

As Richard mentioned, I'll be there.

At least with Brexit delayed there is no chance of the motorway being a lorry park!

I’ll be looking out for both of you. Please say hello if you spot me. My models will be on display up on the right balcony on Saturday, the only day I can make. You may also find me with Darren on the Tommy’s War stand.

I Went to the Euro in 2016 to help out Robin Buckland with the show. I'd love to go again, but with the ferry, hotel and the really long drive, it is rather expensive. I did have the pleasure to meet Andy Belsey then and had a wonderful chat with him. His work to see in real life is incredible. For instance,
340465
1/285 scale and the original Andy fingers in the photo.

I wish all a wonderful and prosperous time and the Hawaii Steak from the Portland Hotel across the street from the show is good too. That is if Jamie still has it on the menu!!!

Hi, I just love these toon tanks of yours, just got the tiger 1 version to do sometime, might just have to get some more if I'm allowed, lol. Those bases look great too.

Sorry I missed you Pete. I did study your toons. Nice to see them in them in the flesh. Darren said you were looking for me and I stayed with Darren and my sections display hoping to meet you. It was good to meet again Peter and Richard. Let's hope there's another Euro to meet up.
My day was muted by stummbling down the bottom stair at the entrance, while carrying all my trench models! They are virtually unscathed but at the expence of my right ankle. I thought it was just a sprain but after being on it some of the day and then driving an hour and twenty minutes home it was very bruised and swollen. I spent the evening in A&E and they think it is fractured, so I have a big ski boot on it for two weeks! I can't drive, so can't work.
