Re: None specific model products

Flux-off, great stuff, recommended by John Brighton many years ago during the 'Powerflow Flux War' mentioned above.

Just one of several places it can be bought

I would have thought that "Passed" meant reached the reserve price. Tony. From Sotheby's glossary of auction terms: "Pass/Unsold - Terms used by the auctioneer when an item fails to reach its reserve at auction." There is also the buyer's premium on top, more than 25%! And if th...

I see it's now re-opened as the Polka Hop. As this is a species of morris dance I fear it may not have regained its former ambience. The Pennsylvania Polka features quite prominently in the film Groundhog Day, perhaps every day is the same in Wakefield :lol: certainly Scalefour North always seems t...

Re: Scaleforum 2019

It strikes me that a badge is a rather passive tool in attempting to increase the social interaction that David is missing out on and certainly isn’t going to address the problem of “a lonely takeaway in your hotel room after the show.” I appreciate that some people are more reserved or shy than oth...
