    You should definitely enter it, Andy. It's a good show, lots of models and a high standard, and lots to look at besides the models. They'll be firing up at least one of the Lanc engines during the day. And be sure to introduce yourself :)

    The Lanc has a Merlin run up this weekend. Both starboards will be run. I'll send some pics.

    Well, I'm happy (and somewhat suprised) to say that I did rather well at this show today. I entered my Hellcat Mk 1 and Me-262 A-2 and took silver and gold in their respective categories! I debated whether or not to bring my 262 but turned out to be a good decision.

    Apologies for the quality of the pics - should have brought my tripod.

    I took a bunch of shots at this show and, with credit to Wayne for the idea, will begin posting some of the entries. There were quite a few and I didn't get them all. Once again, my apologies for the poor quality of the shots as I left my tripod at home.

    First up, for Wayne and Dan, Hasegawa's 1/32 Gabreski P-47 which took a bronze medal. The likeness of the pilot figure to the real Gabreski is quite amazing.
