Bristol Model Engineering and Hobbies Exhibition
††††† August 17th 18th and 19th saw us at Thornbury near Bristol. Members present were, Steve Bullock, Colin Watson, John Edwards, Richard Maslen and Myself. †An enjoyable weekend was had by all with plenty to see. A total of 13 models were displayed on our stand and a great deal of interest shown by the public. It was nice to see Colinís model of HMS Scorpion back on display after its unfortunate sinking at Bicton. Colin informed me he repaired the model back to original condition after 130 hours work and a cost of £400 which was met by the owner of the other vessel involved in the collision.
