It’s unlikely we can fix that today - it has been the focus of some effort in the run up to the show, to get it where it is now!

Back for another stint on the stand. Happy to answer any questions on North Elmham while I'm here.

No worries John. I didn't expect it to be an immediate fix and it is appreciated what has been done to get things to this point.

Good morning (afternoon) from the USA.
Thank-you for putting this together. Lots of useful information, even for an HO scale modeller of the US prototype who never the less wants to "get it all right".

Regards Peter (7149)

Hi John - before you go, just to say how much I look forward to seeing North Elmham at a future "real" Scaleforum......

Suggestion for your video - the music ought to be Vaughan Williams' "Norfolk Rhapsody" :D
Regards
Chris

Excellent show, well done to everyone for setting this up. Particularly like the layout presentations and some of the in depth talks on how things are done. Wonderful stuff.

Thanks for making this possible under such difficult circumstances.

Hi all.
Ta for all who have worked on virtualS4um.
I have downloaded lots of stuff to view when grass is cut.......

I have been AWOL most of last 3 weeks due to trundling around Suffolk and Derbyshire in our recently acquired Motorhome...bought to get my wife out of shielding and hopefully preserve her sanity.

Motorhome will later ( when its safe) take us to visit families in Italy.
Theoretically we will mostly be on line when some tecchy issues are resolved. It is fully equipped with modelling tools, kits etc.

15:00 rather than 1500. I believe that is some late Green With Rivets species...

Hi Paul,

I'd just like to point out that nothing is going away. The show website and content will all be available tomorrow, next week, next month and for the forseeable future.

Additionally if you can get YouTube on your TV if you search for Scalefour Society you'll find all the video content there.

I'm watching Southwark Bridge on my TV right now.

All the Best
Danny

Well, that was a quiet half hour, though much of it was very enjoyably spent watching the Faringdon video - again, superb.

Having finished my official stand duties for the day I would just like to record my thanks to all those who have taken part in whatever capacity. I would particularly like to thank those who made today possible for the hard work that that involved. Many thanks indeed and the day isn't over yet!

Well done to everybody involved in this. Not the best circumstances but a very good set of presentations. I guess Jeremy will not be doing any modelling for a while after his live U-tube stream today. Good to see that we all have the same issues - Not reading instructions properly before diving in and spending long periods of time crawling round on the floor looking for that small part that sprung off and for which there was no spare provided!
