And congratulations to @Heather Kay for reaching the dizzy rank of Usual Suspect! I was unaware she had been promoted or I would have congratulated her in person.

Even allowing for the fact that I was a Customs Officer, that is the biggest fib I have ever heard!

Great to catch up again CC, even under these appalling conditions, a bet’s a bet. Unfortunately the donning of the Martian forfeiture, seen here, was somewhat impromptu, hence the skew-whiff  moustache and uneven ‘hang’ of the regimental Thunderpants. (proper dress etiquette was arranged by the Martianess on Saturday for the official photo shoot). I’m already planning my revenge on Martian for next years soirée, it will be sweet and involve a lot of unnecessaryly excessive violence and chemical warfare.
Lovely work on the Rocs by the way, great to see them in the flesh. Please thank  Pierre again for providing his Tollerton Halibag and flying suitcase for our table , hope he enjoyed himself and has recovered psychologically.

Hello Ian,

Sometimes, it's a side effevt of the rocket fuel... Boxes of B-17 circling for finding the objectived ... Insuide one's head !!

But it did'nt last long !!

You did'nt photobomb, it was purpotedly done..

Now, I would have pictured everyone but we were a lot of modellers !!

It was a pleasure to meet you and all the otheres of course !!

Sincerely.

Hi CC - great to meet you at the show and to see you at Cosford.

Thanks for the beer too - the first of, ahem, many that evening.

For some reason I faded early that night… :D

Counting Rocs at Telford was a very enjoyable activity, especially when fortified with Belgian rocket fuel. Well done Blackburn builders!

I know! Regretfully I saw the results the following morning, it was enough to turn my fangs snow white overnight!

A pleasure Pierre, seeing the pair of them together gave me the impetus to get mine finished, really glad you enjoyed yourself, hope CC didn't lead you too far astray.

 

As Martian said, I sincerely hope you've recovered from the shock and didn't feel the need to book yourself in for any therapy when you got home, (wouldn't blame you!)
