Hi Doug, I'm sending some photos from Model Hobby. There were only two exhibitors: Astra model and Vladyka. Otherwise, a couple of nice models and a bunch of people. Rather, they exhibited things for children, toys, prams and clothes. And what were you to see, I was there on Saturday. I was most disappointed that there was nothing nice to buy for modelers. Health Zdeněk. The worst thing is that I do not know English and I can hardly agree with anyone. If I'm not a compiler on Google, I do not know how to communicate. I do not know where else these photos should be posted on the forum.
This year's 26th Hobby Model Exhibition will be held from 19 to 22 October 2017. The venue is again the most modern trade fair in the Czech Republic, PVA EXPO PRAGUE. GPS coordinates: E 14 ° 30'52.4 ", N 50 ° 07'45.7" https://www.modelhobby.cz/cs/
Hi Doug, ELCO 80 is a great piece, it's a great fast and skilled ship. So I wish a lot of success in the construction of this model and I will like to watch the construction. I wish a nice evening to Munich. Health Zdenek👍
Hi Doug, thank you very much for praise. The eyes are really better I've had some health problems but I'm fine now and so I can go to work on the boats. I've got enough of it, and maybe I can get it over the winter. And what have you got a new project. I'm really looking forward to Munich. Zdenek.😉
Hello to all models of modeling, Felix is indeed a ship designed to carry people between stations in Hamburg. I gave it the flag of the Czech Republic and the city of Prague because I live 6 km from the capital. It was originally a ship from the port of Hamburg. Of course, the video will be replenished as soon as I get to the water, maybe it will happen tomorrow, I'll see how much time is left over. All of you are very healthy Zdenek.

Hello from the center of Europe, I hold my fingers. I have been following the construction of the hull from the beginning and it really did. Great work, I'm looking forward to a video on how this fast car will go. Just keep going.👍👍👍😉
With the laser printer you have a problem, but unfortunately I do not have it at home, so I have to push the devices well and occasionally when I place them in the outdoor unit, I use a two-component five-minute epoxy. Somehow I have to advise. Zdeněk
