    Special dedicated kit build with sponsor 2018

    This is the key for me. I really cannot warrant (to SWMBO, myself, children and potential Grandchildren born within the next 10 years+..) buying anymore on kits! But I'm not against the principle and I'm sure everyone who takes part will enjoy themselves. I also like to thank Jadlam for offering to do this for us. Top seller! Rick.

    Road Trip! Visiting Coventry from Oklahoma

    I can highly recommend a Narrow Boat holiday! I used to live on mine and spent many happy hours touring the canals of the UK. Rick. Now Land Locked.....

    Something odd

    Provost. See it around the Worcester area quite often. It does appear on FR24, but I can't remember his call. Rick. South Worcestershire......

    Kits and Bits aren't far from the Air Museum. mainly radio control, but he does stock some kits and, well, bits, for modelling. Don't forget Mr Models in Brum, just go in for the laugh! They're a great bunch! Rick.

    Broken down. Again!

    I forgot my Cavalier! Actually, that was quite good, much better than the Astra. Suspension was to soft though. M852 OWP if my memory serves me right. Good in the snow. Rick.

    I'll upset the apple cart here. I hate Fords! Last decent one was the, wait for this revelation, Scorpio! That was just ace and silly all at the same time! The last Focus I had had the dodgy puter. The one that nearly killed myself on at least 4 occasions and the wife just the once. She refused to go anywhere near it after that. Over rated, very underspeced and down right dangerous to drive. I hate to say it, but the most reliable cars I've had have been one Citroen Picaso, brill, weird car, and Renault Megans. Bearing in mind I've had quite a few cars in the last 1.1 million miles I've driven, Renault have been the most common and most reliable, statistically. As for Vauxhalls, don't even go there! That must be quite a shock for a few people round here. Rick.

    Hmm, could we interesting. It'd be nice to use a low cost kit, maybe newer mould Airfix under a tenner? That may well generate interest for all skill levels? Rick.

    I have to say I've never shouted, but always get what I want across, or get what I want anyway! Courtesy costs nothing, even if the other guy is ranting. And don't forget, the customer IS always right. Until they can't hear you.... Rick

    Funnily enough Paul, customer handling is my job! I'll be in touch with the garage AFTER they've sorted the problem. You never know where that guy could leave a little something for me find another day.... Strange you should mention Renault and Arriva. They've just closed the Nissan and Renault dealers in Worcester. Guess there's no money in cars anymore. Glad my family has mostly left the industry. Rick. BTW, the Sharan is awful to drive! Vague steering and too soft suspension. Still, it'll make me appreciate my Octavia when I get it back.

    RAM Models UK

    If you have a quick search on this forum you'll see RAM seem to have disappeared off the scene. Not sure of the reasons. Pity. Nice bloke and I'd bought stuff off him in the past. Rick.
