    Not sure what you mean about component-shop. Just putting adapter into the search brings up loads of results, or there is a page available from the menu & if you can't spot the one you want just give them a call or e-mail & you will get a response today with delivery tomorrow a real possibility.

    Just try Component-Shop (www.component-shop.co.uk) they have a range of adapters off the shelf & can custom build just about anything within a day or sometimes even same day if you say it is urgent. Certainly an adapter to go to/from bullets wouldn't be a problem (or expensive)

    Not sure which post had unhappy comments on, but hopefully it was from before I started organising the show. in any case, I am always open to suggestions (polite ones at least!) so if there is something that was not as you would perhaps have liked it to be just let me know.

    There is now a whole bunch of pictures on the show web site (www.blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk) if anyone is interested.
    If you have a look at the gallery page on the site, I recommend that you scroll down to the bottom of the page & look at the last video which is the inside of the model garage of John Eva, which I personally found really impressive. I know it isn't a model boat, but there is no disputing this guy's modelling skill & attention to detail.
