And they continued.

Andy Johnson's Bentley was rather nice  :embarassed: but for some reason he felt the need to mount it on a chassis and even fly it  :facepalm: He tells me he had to put a modern carb on it so he can fly it upside down  :paranoia:

Last lot  ;)

There was a good show of engines at the show and a few casting sets, which SCO caught me having a fondle of  :embarassed: But I am sure he will tell you I did not buy one  :hellno:

Many thanks Jo, lots of interesting engines. I am sure the Jaffa cakes were good also :)

I can definitely confirm I did not see Jo not buying any castings ;-)

Simon, just because you did not see it does not mean Jo was not doing dodgy deals in a dark corner or in the car park ;)

The double negative makes a positive - although I didn't see the purse actually open I did see carrier bags being passed across the counter!

Come on Jo - show us the dirigible engine castings.

The dealing in the carpark was nothing to do with me  :hellno:



As I mentioned I did not buy one casting set, it was two  :mischief:

You see Simon, it all starts with an innocent Jaffa or two and then before you know it illicit goods are changine hands.

Jo I think I may forgive you if you abandon the triples provided you move the Merc engine to the top of your to make list :mischief:
