Just the briefest of posts to share with you all some outstanding examples of model making and painting; yes it’s Euro Militaire time again! This annual showcase is a wonderful opportunity, for myself and the ‘Provost Marshal’, to travel to sunny Folkestone and witness the handiwork of some of the finest artisans in the world.
With both of us frantically busy at our respective work places it was a wonderful treat to enjoy a leisurely breakfast before attending the show, this year on the Sunday. As in previous years the standard of the competition entries in simply humbling and while many of the entries are at the larger scale, preferred by modellers rather than wargamers it was impossible not to be inspired by what we saw.
With the competition entries successfully viewed* it was time to ‘get amongst it’ with the throngs of visitors all looking for a bargain on the main floor. Not planning on a purchase per se, I did manage to snaffle some goodies including a replenishing of tufts and a rather splendid new lamp.
*One year we did actually manage to miss them due to an over indulgence of liquid refreshment in the bar!
Another fabulous day out and my thanks, once again, to the ‘Provost Marshal’ for getting us safely there and back. Sadly this does not signal a full return to blogging as yet, but I offer this post of proof of life; one hopes to be back with you shortly!
