Amongst the big pile of goodies from Telford, my prizes were a Toad Resins Blohm und Voss P.202 (haven't seen one of those since 1996 and the only one I saw then was mine) and the Schiffer book on the Junkers ju 388.

Joe.

You should have asked for me cos I had a complimentary Canberra book waiting for you, unless I was'nt there when you came to the stand!!

If you want I'll get the V-Bomber Special off to you once it's printed to make up for you purchasing the Canberra Pt2 book.

Ho Hum!

Jon

Jon,

I did actually actually meet you on Saturday for my complimentary book and bonus decals sheet and very happy I am with them too, thanks again.

Good to meet you, even if you can't remember it :unsure:

I went to Scale Modelworld and I bought (hey, it's just like one of those memory games you used to play when you were a child, the one where you add something each time):

Gavia La7;

Hasegawa 109E-4 and G-6, bargain at £10 each;

Airfix Hurricane I (another bargain @ £5);

Aeroclub S-3 Viking undercarriage;

Osprey "Slovak and Bulgarian Aces of WW2";

A bunch of paints;

Some micro-nozzles for superglue (wow what a find, they make using superglue about 400% easier);

and looking at my hotel bar bill, a few drinks as well.

Thanks also to Graham, Seb and Brian D for the various freebies. If there's ever anything I can do for you guys ...

An ICM 1/72nd Tupolev TB-3 which I got for a steal (£6.50) :D, and a Revell 1/48th Canadair Sabre which I haggled those nice guys at Wonderland Models down to £12 :)

Didn't buy a lot this year other than those, due to my ever growing unbuilt collection.

Although I have presented myself with a problem....where am I going to 'park' that TB-3 when I've built it?? :cheers:

Thomas,

They don't seem to have a brand name. I can't remember who I bought them from - I think it was "Little Cars". They're listed on the website under "Tools and Accessories", ref "DM29", if these are the same things I bought. (http://www.little-cars.co.uk/pricelst.htm)

To describe them: you get about 5 supeglue tips and a length of polycarbonate (?) micro-diameter tube. Insert tube in nozzle, cut to length, and leave on superglue bottle. The tiny bit of superglue that dries on the end is easily removed, then simply let capilliary action do the work and apply superglue exactly where you want it. I've so far only used the system with fairly thick gel superglue, it's great!!

HTH,
