That's great
I really want to join you....one day......

I liked the SM.82 with complicated camo (Even with brush), like a million tiny worms

The BF-109 in the 2nd from the end photos Is GREAT (I am prepairing for a personall BF-109 Campaign but in the future)

Also the P-40 in the 5th photo from the end is really great, I'll build one in the P-40 campaign



Cheers Nick

Hi Steffen

I'd really love to go to the Toy Fair, but at the moment I simply couldn't afford a trip abroad. Of course, if I can find a little job, that may change - but then I might not be able to take the time off work! Catch-22!

All the best

Hi all,

I'll join you guys in your neck of the woods



The place were we live is indeed covered with woods. Especially the road between Marc's house and mine. I think Steffen can confirm this...

We may see some Darts practice soon



Not at all! It's nice to see some additional photos. I completely forgot to shoot our own models for example...

In the photo above, I'm the person in the background judging the contest models. When I touch the models with my nose, I know I'm too close...

BTW I do not want to misuse the thread, but as I also shot a few different pix I would like to post a link to my Expo report (many pix may look familiar though )

Sadly I cannot afford a better camera so my pix are not quite as clear and stable as Jean-Lucs .. but I am sure he likes this picture:

Thank you for the awesome photos Jean-Luc! A nice selection of aircraft there- in particular I love the Hawker (Sea?) Fury, that big Russian jet bomb with the Mig 23 (or 27?), and the more unusual French twin prop types.

Hi Steffen

Come the day... given the chance... I'll join you guys in your neck of the woods - it looks a pretty good part of the world to be a modeller!

All the best
