Eight and final set and a pic of Mike Coles 1/4 scale Gnome just after he had finished running it  8) Once Mike gets the running bug he has to run each of his engines one after another so the entire stand starts stinking of petrol and exhaust fumes  ::)

Like Jason I did acquire some casting sets but since I arrived home they seem to have vanished  :headscratch:

Thanks,

Sorry: We normally go Friday so that we can have choice of the goodies, not that I need any, or know that I need them until I see them  ::)

Nothing much just some 5C collets and a multifix toolholder. If you took into account the petrol cost then buying on fleabay would have been cheaper  :-\

Many thanks for showing the pics. Now trying to work out what everything is.. :noidea:     Like you Joe I have trouble driving far, about 50 miles is my limit to a show and a safe drive home. Hopefully got a lift to Midlands Show like I did to Doncaster. I have asked the hopefull chaffeur to empty his boot so that more room for those thinks that you didn't know you "NEEDED" until you saw them looking for a new home. :DrinkPint:

Many thanks to Jo and to Jason for posting those lovely pictures - the finish on some (most - all) of those models is something I can only dream of attaining - the pictures you two have posted have only enhanced this forum.
