Sunday May 2nd saw the Club at Lambourn Woods, near Swindon attending a one day country show. It was a refreshing change from the normal 'hectic' RC model shows and as we were the only RC users we could do what we wanted when we wanted. There were a few classic cars and military vehicles together with craft stalls and a boot fair. Martin Payne and Lee Sellens worked hard, together with their support crew, to set up a superb display with a river, bridges, guard towers and the like. The models went down well with the visitors and the sun shone. A good day was had by all. Thanks to Martin for the pictures.
|Martin and Lee did the Club proud with the display that they 'knocked up'!||Underneath the Gazebo's were a good display of Tamiya models.||Whilst outside the bigger models...||...were parked up in the sunshine.||Martin was the first out with his Panther. The bridges were very effective and strong although a tight squeeze for Big Dave's King Tiger!|
|Martin takes his Panther through the river.||And again!||Jim's award winning Tiger crossing one of the bridges...||...and runs over some rubble.||Another view of the models and the course.|
|Martin's Panther worries the Goon in the tower...||...and demolishes a strong point.||Humpy's Panther climbs the side of Mt Lambourn. Look at those tracks!||Somebody's Pershing grazes a concrete bunker.||Martin's Panther on the girder bridge.|
|Somebody's Sherman rumbling along in the rubble.||At the end of the day Humpy decided to start demolishing the display area...||...with the inevitable results!||It almost went over and teetered on overbalancing but settled on its left track.||After a little tweaking, the Panther was up and about in a few minutes.|
