Well done and congratulations Pete. Were there any other toon displays apart from yours?

Are there any other pictures from the show. Seems like without MM won't see them published.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Barry.
Yes there were aircraft models particularly from Modelling clubs.I caught glimpses of some great Seaking models and a 32nd Tornado GR.1 and Luftwaffe Uhu.

Try not to listen to daft comments like that. We all know that you’re a great bloke and definitely not boring. Some people are so insecure that they have to pull others down to feel better about themselves. Try not to take it to heart and leave them with their sad view of life. It’s their problem, don’t make it yours!

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 stumbling down the bottom stair at the entrance, while carrying all my trench models! They are virtually unscathed but at the expense 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.
Andy
Sorry to read this Andy, hope you recover soon. Bet you were grateful that the models were ok, but quite a shock to tumble like that.
John.

Well done Pete, good for you.
Judges have some funny agendas at times when they seem to overlook something that is so good.

Thanks for the pictures Pete. Pay no attention to those comments by the couple, Richard. Andy, carrying anything in front of you makes a blind spot...hope you're on the mend.

Cheers,
Richard

Wow Andy,

So sorry to hear the news and I hope that there is no fracture, just a really bad sprain. I know the stairs well down to the first landing from the little restaurant. There are so many different flights of stairs in the whole building with all the levels. Behind the stage you have even more that go down to the dressing/green rooms and they are really bad.

Richard, I hope you too are ok and have no bad after effects or a sprain. Take care of yourself there youngster!!!

Pete, A hearty congrats from me too buddy!!! Much deserved as you put a lot of heart and soul into those little masterpieces. Feels good, don't it!!!

One last thing Gents...Were there a lot of vendors there too???

Hi Andy.I think my failings are that i like to engage with everybody and some i admire and meet for first time usually turn out not so friendly.Im quite a solitary animal at times and i have learnt to not be so trusting.In future i will migrate towards folk like Darren and try and not be The Peoples friend.I try and see the good in everyone.
Hope your ankle gets better real soon.
Bless you.
Richard.

Richard,
I stood next to you at Euro and we had some interaction but I wasn't quite sure if you recognised me without my pegs? I was in a lot of pain, so didn't find the SK stall. You came to the centre of the room and I was with Tommy's War but came over to you. Hopefully, next time I can consentrate on conversations.

Hope the ankle is improving.
Richard.
