Discussions moved on to 'what is currently on the workbench' and I was shown two spectacular masters that Richard is working on and should be available very soon. The first is one of the biggest and most beautiful modern 'water line' boats I have ever see, sorry sworn to secrecy at this moment, but as soon as I have the green-light I will post more details and prices.
The second model is a tank and I predict it will be the best selling model in the range, once again sworn to secrecy, but when this model is released the whole hobby will be clambering for one. Honestly, it is that good and of a prototype that everyone will recognise. I mean everyone, Hint, Hint.
(Sorry its all secret, but I have been asked not to betray a confidence, I can still hint at it! Can't I Rich?)
After a couple more cakes - a real Sugar-Rush, Dave and I visited Wayland Forge, then walked down to Ian Allen Books for a browse at the shelves. Prior to making our way back to Droitwich and Bromsgrove we had an hour in the German Market. A day out, that I had told my Wife would finish by 4,00pm, actually lasted until 6.30pm and when Sue asked what I had been doing? I replied by saying. "Standing around in a cramped Model Shop, drinking tea and moaning about the state of the economy and how wargamers can be such a strange breed!" "So you didn't enjoy it?" Asked Sue. "Oh no, I loved it - and I can't wait to do it again." I said.
