Yup, had a great time! :D

Pic's from me, too.

But guess which numpty forgot to charge his camera on Saturday night, so couldn't take any more photo's on Sunday? :-[


May I also point out that friend buzzbomb walked out with, from memory, 15 trophies, including 6 Firsts & 3 Best of's.


My first ever entry into the comp. & I got a Certificate of Commendation for the FSBR ... pretty chuffed, really, & I learned a lot about competition modelling.

Miffed that I couldn't be there this year in person if only to witness Brian having to make the journey to the presentation area over a dozen times !  (Well done that man ! )  and congrats to you too Old Wombat for competing and achieving a commendation !

I look forward to seeing pics of the event.
