News for September 2017.


Hello everyone here is my news page for September.


I think the summer and holidays is over with the weather that is occuring everywhere at the moment. It feels very wintery and maybe motivates us back to the modelling bench to build that favourite model.

I must admit I havent done any modelling now for a good few weeks now. My model bench all put away as we had visitors over the last weekend in August.


August was wonderful for us we had a most wonderful holiday around Bavaria Germany. What a beautiful part of the country. We flew to Nuremburg and hired a car and drove around the what the German Tourist organsation have decided is the romantic route. And believe me it is. The towns down the route are all picturesque and welcoming.


The first visit was to Dachau a solome and sombre reminder and memorial to the suffering of people during WWII. The memorial is done in a way to feel the atmosphere and tell the history.


We stayed in Nuremburg and beautiful city and had great Bratwurst and Saucraut in a resteraunt in town. One of my highlights was to see the Kulmbach figures and Zinnfigurine show held in Kulmbach.  Made a visit to the Zinnfigurine museum also, in the Plassenburg Castle.


We then drove and stayed along the route from Wurzburg down to Fussen. A wonderful and memorable holiday.


Here are some images to see and I have more in my Gallery page.

I keep spending alot of time catching up on Facebook with the many friends and groups I have joined, much to my dear wife's annoyance. There is always wonderful work displayed on the many pages and cannot believe how many great modellers there are out there.

Please remember if you are visiting a favourite show please make sure you check information before travelling.

Please contact me through the contact page I will always welcome photos or event news to add to my website.

Please keep looking in from time to time and I wish you many happy hours making that favourite scale model.


Thank you.
