Coleshill Model Boat show

Lizzie 38-15

I was looking forward to the Coleshill Model Boat show. And then I wasn't as it was cancelled, something to do with a disappearing organizer. And then it was back on again, thanks to support by Component Shop and a top bloke called Stavros from the Model Boat Mayhem forum.

Thanks to off and on nature of the show, a couple of traders had dropped out but still, the hall looked pleasantly full with sales around the edge and model boats in the middle.

A quick trip around the trade was followed by a slower lap doing my best to support all those who'd made it with some of my hard earned cash. Well, it seems the right thing to do and there were some bargains to be had. I'm stocked up on odd-shaped plastic strip for a start.

The boats were well worth a look too. OK, I'd seen some of them at other shows but you never know what catches your eye second time around. 

Well worth the trip, I'm looking forward to it again next year!

Love the image of the RMAS paddle tug- "Forceful"? Recall them well in Portsmouth Dockyard, a lovely anachronism.
