Re: Scaleforum 2018

I should like to say something about the social fringe. The case for this is strengthened by the arrival of a party, clearly composed of distinguished guests, escorted by a member of the Committee and later joined by others. It would have been nice for the mere mortals to be introduced to the disti...

Pictures of individual models will normally give a flavour of the thing. Pictures of layouts, unless composed with some care may not. The pictures of the layouts at Warley were fine to give an impression. Terry Bendall Exactly Terry. As the 'photographer' here I'm happy to say that I'm no photograp...
