Great photo and always nice to put a face to names. You are both just down the A20 from me. I regularly play cricket in your neck of the woods. I have a match in Staplehurst tomorrow. :)

I can well imagine Stephen's models having even more impact in the flesh.

This is me pretending to be a Spitfire ace at the Biggin Hill air show a few years ago, can't help notice I seem to have gone mostly grey in just a few years.

What a great thread, as an isolated modeller I'm really enjoying this!
Cheers,
Dave.

Hi Richie, Stephen, Rick and Bud,

Nice to see the faces behind the names! It's great that you guys can meet and share this wonderful hobby.

I'll try to look up a decent mugshot of myself. It has to be one in which I am a couple of stone younger, otherwise it won't fit in the thread...

Great to be able to put faces to names.  Especially so Stephen as we share scale and subject interests.
Here's my ugly mug. I do like this one as I think it gives me a (false) air of sophistication!

This is brilliant - and just what I was hoping that others would join -

Thanks, chaps!

Richie - when things with Covid restrictions settle down, we should try and arrange a meet up as you are in Kent - if you are interested of course!  Great picture of you in the Spit.

Ian - great to put a face to your name as well.

Don't be shy folks, let's see some more of our forum members!

Regards

Dave

Dave it would be lovely to meet up, I might even make it down to a model club evening once they're up and running again.

I've just spent the most pleasant afternoon in the very fine company of Dave B and Stephen (lone modeller) drinking tea, chatting about models and life, the universe and everything. A huge thank you for the invitation Dave and Stephen I feel utterly inspired after meeting you both. Photographs don't do justice to your craftsmanship, what a great day it has been. A shame we were too busy chatting to remember to take a photograph. :)

Yes two became three earlier today. Previously DaveB and I had been meeting for some time as our club is still in recess. Among the many modelling debts I owe to Dave was the introduction to his, (now our), modelling club. In the past I have been wary about joining such organisations for a number of reasons, but earlier today I realised how much one can learn from others with similar interests, and how much I am missing the camaraderie and joy of meeting others with similar interests. Meeting you and Dave today was a real lift and it seems that we may have the making of a small sub-group. Seeing your Bristol Scout was the icing on the cake!
Next time we meet we will try to take a photograph.

Stephen.
