Liz, Steve and Les B shivered their way through a packed model show at the Shuttleworth Collection, near Biggleswade in Bedfordshire.
On arrival, the three ERs set up the display on tables in the heated maintenance hangar. Fortunately, the rest of the clubs and traders soon arrived and the organisers were able to shut the large hangar doors, creating a semblance of warmth. Traders seemed to be busy, certainly the restaurant was doing well, serving hot food and drink all day!
The ERs stand was singled out for praise for showing a broad range of models - not just aircraft! (in fact the Best in Show was a beaufifully rendered model of a Bugatti Racer.) There was little time to wander around the museum, although Steve was spotted with his head, (and camera!) in the wheel bay of the collection's Grumman Wildcat.
