A few Pictures from ExpoNG 2013

A general talking shop for any subject under the sun (even Monty Python). This would also be a good place to make suggestions about the site itself or about these forums (or "fora", if you're particularly pedantic).

A few Pictures from ExpoNG 2013

I did the Swanley show with Two Sister's farm but as I was on my own I was unable to to take many pictures. I did however manage to take one or two late in the afternoon when the crowd thinned out.

Ever since I first saw pictures of Nottery Quay some years ago I have wanted to see the real thing.
Well now I have and I must say the pictures I have seen do not do it justice. The few pictures I took at Swanley certainly don't.
It is superbly understated but captures the feel of a small harbour and sandy beach so well.
It reminds me very much of a holiday I spent as a child in the late 1950's at Winchelsea.

I wasn't the only one who enjoyed the layout either, I had to queue late in the afternoon to get my pictures. Not bad for a layout over twenty years old.

The layout was built by Chris O'Donoghue.

The man in the vest reminds me of someone but I can't recall who.

Click upon final one and you'll get a very poor video, cannot understand why uploading to Photobucket ruins the film.
More later when I've finished editing.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Many thanks for the photos chaps. I've only ever made it to the show once :cry: and that was when I lived in the south east. Now that I'm in Shropshire it's a bit too far.

Cheers,

The winner was Windrush Wharf Gerry.

I must say I liked the little tile manufacturer, but not an easy decision for the judges to pick the winner out of those two. they were both very good.

Gerry,

The one you missed was A Cut Above The Rest, by David Bumstead, depicting a lawnmower factory. It didn't arrive after you took the photos as David is the young chap in the blue jumper with the layout that can be partly made out on the left of your first photo!

I'll have photos of all of these in my photo report as soon as I can reach the summit of the mountain of snaps taken on the day than need to be resized and cropped etc! Working on it!

Mick

Peter and Gerry, thank you for sharing these photos. I didn't make it to Swanley in the end. My ambitious plans of visiting my mum in Surrey, then doing Swanley and going on to Basildon for radio controlled car racing were scuppered by my mothers ability to make cups of tea and conversation! :lol:
Hello, I'm Dave.

So many modelling ideas, so little money!
