Knightcote Model Boat Club open day 2014
A sunny day. The chance to spend time sailing model boats with friends. Such a pity I had to work so could only spend a couple of hours there.
Never mind, there was plenty to see. Even in the morning, at one point there were 17 sailors around the poolside. A wide variety of models to be seen too from landing craft to wooden river cruisers to yachts and high-speed racing boats.
As befits an open day, there were at least 3 clubs other than KMBC represented. Steve from Model Boat Bits had brought a useful selection of products to relieve us of a few quid. I came away with long lengths of plastic mouldings for a railway project and some brass wire - because I'm sure it will come in handy and you don't see it in yard lengths normally.
Anyway, go and have a look at my photos on Flickr.
