Howard and the rest of the Small & Delightful group for their efforts. Not
only do they put on an excellent show under increasingly difficult
conditions but they also allow 'outsiders' to gate-crash their celebratory
dinner that same evening. Being invited to this makes it by far the most
civilised exhibition that I've ever attended!

- Hi Nigel,
I think you misread my email. It certainly was not a comment
on NGSW. Rather an observation that it is getting more
difficult to see and obtain basic modelling items.
In my youth, proper model shops were everywhere - a walk
between some of them was but a short stroll, Blunts and
Dudley Dimmocks? Now we are poorly off. Suppose that's
what they call progress......

> If you strip out the layouts, as mentioned by Brian, surely it is no longer and EXHIBITION. I go more for inspiration that to purchase: having said that I cam back some £300 lighter than when I arrived!!!!
