    Just thought I would post a few photos from Blackpool.First time I've been there for several years. Not a lot for model submariners but Terry Turton's submarine stand was immaculate as always and it was good to see a relatively new supplier A1DOWNUNDER SUBS. (Ian O is chatting with Jim H on the stand in the photo.) Some really good "target" models the Minesweeper with the recovered German sub (Seehund?) on deck was intriguing and I could almost go for one of those tanks! I think you will also spot a number of John W's very interesting sub fleet on the Ribble stand.

    A friend of mine(fellow local club member)attended the show and reported it was really good, well worth the journey up from Sussex. They made a long weekend out of it, although the show was good, him and his wife weren't impressed with Blackpool!

    Yes Blackpool seems to develop very different reactions to different people.

    My view is that it is a thoroughly WYSIWG place - so you have to choose carefully from the wide range of experiences/entertainments on offer!

    I still think there was nothing to beat the Model Boat Show when it was held in the Blackpool Tower circus with subs sailing in the flooded circus ring!
