      That is a catering area and there is another upstairs, Harry Williams  will be with me from Friday morning, he's bringing his
   Gnome engine mounted on a gun carriage and his latest creation a valve less pulse jet engine.
     I was hoping to run some engines outside but the organizers think it's too dangerous even in a cage !!!!!! :Mad:

Are they worried you may escape :LittleDevil:

You will have to start making some marine engines as a solid flywheel looks a lot safer

I am also going on Thursday along with my mate Tom.  I'm sure we will buy something.  Be good to try and meet some of you.

Hi Stew,

I have now built three of your engine designs and it would be great to actually meet you to say thanks for the drawings.

Perhaps Jason can arrange for us all to meet in the cafeteria area at a specified time.

Mike

Sounds good to me

I plan to go on Friday with some mates from Bristol SMEE. Have ordered some goodies for collection at show but also taking a little cash for those ď bargainsĒ.
Hope to meet Harry and Mike to discuss the Anzani and seek some advice.
Donít understand why Mike isnít allowed to run his engines. We have not had any problems at Bristol exhibition with running i/c and gas turbine engines.

As I was not able to go to the Midlands show this year Surus offered to buy me a set of castings to make up for it  :thinking:


Looking forward to seeing some pics from the show  :)

Jo

P.S. Only afterwards did he mentioned he had charged the casting to my Paypal account :headscratch:

Can't remember what they used to sell them for but just over £100 sounds good value.

Good to see a few forum members at the show. I've strung all the pics together in a video.

A nice few engines there. I didn't see Mike Cole's Gypsy there  :(

I know what they used to sell for :-X but if it was a good price or not is still to be seen as I already know it is missing some bits and only when it turns up will I know if it has any undocumented features  :facepalm2: The drawings showed that Camden was based about 10 miles away from me when it originally sold so it is an elderly orphan....

I did, too much of a crowd around his stand when I was taking photos

I also neglected to ask Adrian if he had any sets of  "Bamford" castings and DRAWINGS yet :LittleDevil:

Maybe the show organisers should note that having the engine builder with their model engine discussing their build encourages a crowd  ;)


Hopefully there may be a few more photos from the show  :???:
