Re: Scaleforum 2020

I'm sure it is, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't disappointing, to me at least. I was somewhat disheartend by the apparent lack of interest by the committee in getting involved with the event. In particular I felt that the suggestion that those interested should "discuss among yourselves, ...

Re: Scaleforum 2020

I drafted a couple of posts on converting and building wagons to P4 standards, which were very well received, with many forum members 'bookmarking' the posts for future reference. It wasn't the same as being at a rea...

Re: Scaleforum 2020

Even if Scaleforum were to be put on, I am aware of people who, given their age (and consider the age profile of the Society's membership) have indicated that they would give the show a miss. They are not prepared a) to travel and b) mix with people from other parts of the country until there is ei...

Not when he is still taking money for ranges not covered by his 'disclaimer' but not delivering, and not giving refunds to those he has already hooked, it isn't.

If I had butt joined head to body his neck would have been rather long so I drilled into the body, sunk his head down and held it with a dab of solder. You can now see inside his dirty collar!!
