Just got home, so a quick photo dump of a few shots I took of the CC display at Telford. Plenty of positive comments were given which was pleasing. I'll post more of the CBK when I recover!

A big Thank You too, goes to John Ratzenberger, John Thornthwaite and Paul Bradley for supplying many of the models.

I have to say the Snowberry looked even better in the flesh and is a really impressive build which garnered much interest. Well done Julian.

You know, that Neptune really sticks out. The Flak ship was a great idea, and the attackers really look the part. Great work - I'm really sorry that you must have felt a bit lonely over there. All the photos I see are just of you manning the table.

Did you get as much interest from ex-servicemen that you did last year?


The Neptune did attract quite a lot of comment and many stopped to take photos, probably because it stood out. Quite a few servicemen stopped by as last year, but more Shackleton than Neptune crews - typical, as last year it was the other way around! Also the Nephew of the navigator of Blenheim D QY dropped by and was chuffed to see it as the main Blenheim displayed low over the mast of the Flakship.

As CC was adjoining the CBK stand, I wasn't lonely at all Brews, it was just like one long CBK stand with other CBKers looking after the CC stand when I was away. Also John Thornthwaite did a few stints behind the display too. It was the first time I got to chat to him for any length of time and discovered he is John B Thornthwaite of 'JB' Models fame and an ex-Matchbox production manager, and even did the production on the Matchbox Flower Class! A very interesting chap indeed.

Thanks James, and many thanks to the other CBKers for putting on such an excellent display (I really wish I'd had the time do make one too), and also thanks to the other CBKers for manning the CC stand when I was out and about in the halls. A good show altogether.

Julian, huge round of applause for all your effort to draw this together -- I know you had to do a lot of real work to make it all happen. Looks great !!!

Julian, what a great display, and I am staggered at all the work you did, bravo.

Cheers
Jim
