Ellesmere show 2017 part 2.

Ellesmere show 2017, Part 2.

On the upper floor with the trade stalls was this club with a mixed bag of Subs, boats and trucks




Also on the upper floor was
 

And as mentioned in previous post Mac's mouldings, I got my Narrow Boat bumpers there, I'm glad to say!.
Their desk top model with all their items for sale displayed 



Potteries Model Boat club.



Wirral Model Boat club.
This chap said "All these beautiful model boats and all you are interested in is the Duck"
I didn't tell him "I'm Duckie" and have a better though smaller Duck than his!. 
The boat on the left is also a model I've built, the 10 hatch coaster by Model Slipway,another enjoyabell build.

It is a whopper though isn't it, must have been to Etherow for all the bread given out there.



Kirklees MBC.

On our diary for a visit this year!, to their club waters.



Truck Club
with a nice sign!, 
The trucks, don't ask the price, if you have to ask you can't afford it they say don't they?.










Model working truck engine complete with sound effect.

Hoylake MBC




Southport MBC
Some nice models here!

Narrow Boat complete in Lock!.

St Helens MBC


Liverpool MBC







There again making and showing his beautiful models was the chap with the Liverpool stand 




Runcorn and District Scale MBC

Another Duck!, this one had a rudder same as the other one where as mine is tank steering and instead of a rudder turning, the head turns!.

Another of my favourites was this Aircraft carrier.



The plane lift comes up and there is a full military band playing "Life on the ocean waves".
Very nice modelling!.


Last but not least!.
Ellesmere MBC
Tucked away in a small area, you could easily have missed.

That's the only downside of this years show in my mind, if you hadn't been before and knew where all the Club stands were you could have easily missed some of  them which would have been a shame after all the effort the various club have put in the build, supply and transportation of their pride and joy's!.
Perhaps I didn't get a layout map, there was one wasn't there?.

Well that was a good start to the year hopefully it will carry on in the same way and if you didn't get to the show I hope this will encourage you to make it there next time. 

The views in this post are just my view and perhaps not the same as others, but it takes all types doesn't it, what a world it would be if we were all the same hey!

Did you hear of the woman who confused her Valium with her birth control pills.
She now has 14 kids but doesn't really care!.

Did you hear of the constipated composer?, he got stuck on his last movement.

The cannibals eating a Clown. 
One said to the other" Does this taste funny to you?".
