    Brighton ModelWorld 2011

    Post  Tom(ADMIN) on Sun Feb 20, 2011 3:34 pm

    Here's a few pics taken today at Brighton ModelWorld show...


    Roger Flaherty's little Revell 144th scale Type 212














    Roger in full technical talk speak...that guy drove poor Roger to the point of insanity, trying to explain to him how Alf's boat worked...


    "No, like I said earlier...the air goes in like THIS, water goes out like THAT...!


    Attendence figures were a little on the low side, but the AMS stand always drew a good steady crowd of interested onlookers.

    It was really nice to meet Dave Wright and his good lady wife, Roger Flaherty and his good lady, Ramesh (wheelerdealer)and it was so good to see Alf Blake again after all those years.

    All in all, a good day out...I really enjoyed myself, and I'm looking forward to the next show already.

    Thanks to everybody for making me feel so welcome, and thanks to Roger for his kind comments on the new website.

    Yes, it was a good show, all things considered....£3 for a British Rail style sausage roll?

    Roger has been promoted after that herculean effort yesterday...his new title is "The AMS Advanced Ballast System Explanatory Personnel Manager"...

    So you dined out there also, Richard.

    You "high roller" you!

    And Roger definitely deserves a Nobel prize (or maybe Oscar) for educating the public.

    Well...dined out leaves an awful lot to the imagination, David! I had a quick look at the prices...frightened the life out of myself! A pasty and a pint of something that resembled lager...£6.50! I had the free coffee and that awful sausage roll...

    Post  thegrimreaper on Wed Mar 16, 2011 4:51 pm

    Might get myself banned here but just looking at the photos and I have one question do`s the gray hair come naturaly do`s it change by it`s self I notice that Ramesh is the only guy with dark hair, or is it all the worry weather your sub is going to surface that makes it that colour? or...........have I got to dye my hair that colour to become a member of the AMS ???? lol

    Yes!!! I like it!

    I could analyse our membership records, I suppose, to find the average age, but we don't ask peoples age or birthdate! There may be some young uns lurking in our database and we have women members too.

    Speaking for myself the hair is no longer grey but is no more. Some would call it streamlined!
