Hi folks , Just to give you all a update on progress with the show. 28-29 April 2018. The Scottish nationals continues to grow and grow , we are looking at just short of 600 tables to service 95-100 Traders and Exhibitors ! This is the largest show out-with Telford in the UK. This year is extra special with the 100 year aniversary of the RAF and the aniversary of the end of World War one .So look forward to some great displays on the tables . As we continue to grow we at the Scottish Nationals are continually looking for new and different displays and sometimes overlooked builds. This year there will be a bigger influence of Truck build's, ships, model fairground and RC Models . We strive to bring a wide range of clubs displays and Traders to cater for everyone . We hope to see you all there soon, everyone is welcome .
I have really been looking forward to this Group Build, so it's only right that I should try build something a bit special. So here it is the Contrail Blackburn Perth, the largest Biplane Flying boat ever to see service with the RAF. Until I am corrected by someone with more knowledge anyway ! Pictures below to show it's not been started and despite my best intentions of cutting the parts out of the backing sheet, have done two other Group builds, I haven't got round to it. The decal look past it so, thanks to the interweb I have got in contact with someone in Russia, who is printing some, including the footprints for going on the wing ! This is only the second vacform I have ever attempted, my last one turned out much better than I hoped, but this is huge compared with it. Good luck to everyone on this GB, look out for Bristol Boy who is building the Blackburn Iris, which is the convertible version of this aircraft. cheers Pat
