And, now, we come to the photo's bit, about 170 in all.

So,  I won't post them all, just a selection & a link to my photo host site;

As do I.


Also I would like to thank Ramba for putting me onto this link to photos by Ryan Hothersall of the SA Scale Model Expo (a much better photographer than I).

By the way; roughly in the centre of the right half of the very last image on page 6 of that link is a bloke with long white hair & beard, wearing a blue shirt & tan pants .... that's me. :D

Thirded! And there was an Aussie aircraft sitting behind that Fw 190D that looked familiar too  ;)

Call that hair "long"?  ;D

It is in a job where every other bugger has a crew cut! ;D

And no, it's not really long ... yet ... but it's getting there! ;)

The problem with growing white hair too long at this time of year is cracks from passing kids about their Xmas wish lists   :icon_punal:

There was something funny about the link. Does this work?

You are correct, there was something dodgy about that link! :o

I've rectified the issue in the original post, now. ;)

Thanks, perttime! :smiley:

It was a good show, the first time I attended.

I noticed a lot of great Whifs in the display only part of the comp, assuming they were yours Guy. I think I saw you when we were packing up but had no idea it was you!

Here is a link to the pictures I took.

I was also there.  Met up with Guy, no worries.  No photos unfortunately.  Nice models.   ;D

Some excellent photography, there, Ray! 8)

Pity you didn't mention that you would be attending, we could have arranged a meet-&-greet. :smiley:
