I hope the meets are going well, and I had hoped to make the December meet, but can't get a ferry until 6th December so I'll have to make do with the January meet. Hope you are all surviving the rain/snow/frost etc. It was a bit nasty last week with strong winds and rain and it even got down to 8C one night, anyway see you all in January.

Just to let you know I will be selling off some spare truck bits at the meet so if you are interested pls bring some small change, some wheels, a body and cab for the 4x4 wpl truck, a body and cab for the Gaz truck, a controller and mfu from the original wpl. My workshop is cluttered and I need to make some space.

Thank you so much guys, I had a great time. And my grandson said he had a lot of fun, (please thank the non forum members for humouring him). Apart from running his heng long bulldog around in my back garden, that's the first time he's run his Sherman, and he loved it.

And an extra thanks to Tom for letting him run the Sterling T26 tractor, although we had a laugh seeing Tom panic when the lad shot off with the Super Pershing still on the back, oops :lolno:

Yeah, was a good day :thumbup:

I did pucker slightly! Great to meet you and your grandson.

Big thanks to George for setting up the club, it seems to be going from strength to strength

That makes two of us ;)

Driving back afterwards, he did say that was one of his highlights, not scaring us, but driving your truck :thumbup:

That 3D printed monster is indeed a monster, each time I see a pic of it, it looks bigger than ever. Good to see the Hyde venue up and running, there is a certain atmosphere about the place that I always liked. :thumbup:
