    Hi Steve.
    I'm glad you like the video, a true compliment from a fellow 'video guy'.

    Hi Rob. Great video showing the huge range of model / engineering skills that exist in our local area. Hope you get a lot of β€˜views’ and it inspires some of the younger generations. Steve

    Hi Pete.
    Glad you liked the video.
    It's true that many of the club stands were manned by 'gents of a certain age', indeed one of our members, Guy Ellerby was 100 years old earlier this year but can be seen amusing some young visitors with his 'Thomas' loco and a 'lively mouse'.

    The tag line of the show is 'Models That Move' and we encouraged visiting club exhibits to be as interactive as possible rather than just static displays of models, so that the visitors, and particularly youngsters, could have a 'hands on' experience and be involved in the show. Hence the 'Press the button' bit with Malcolm Beaks steam engine display, the 'Drive an Engine' feature in the corridoor, the 'Have-a-go Boats' on the pond to name a few.

    All this is an attempt to start that little spark of interest and enthusiasm in model making and crafts that might mature into a meaningful hobby later in life.

    Otherwise once those 'old gents' are gone, and taken their skills with them, who will take their place πŸ€”?
    Philosophising done.....
    Robbob.

    Terrific video Rob, I think there was something for everyone who's into crafting/building, My favorite
    was the 'Spithead Review', a lot of skill building in that scale, sad to notice that the majority of stands were manned by us older modelers, I hope it won't end with our generation.😞

    Cheers, Pete
