Re: new layout : maple shack

I went to the Rising of the Sap open day at a maple distillery today and could not help but thinking how well this layout captured the atmosphere. My only adverse comment is that the Gn15 crew need coats, hats and gloves on :P as we didn't see a bare head, hand or arm today.

Re: Gn15 Society and/or marketing

As a long time member who has drifted away several times I must admit I always drift back to this group as we all have a similar low key approach to modelling and there are very very few big egos or arguments unlike many real life clubs and other chat groups I'm on. This is our club and society. As ...
