Stop pulling our chain :lol:

It was the nicest thing at the fair - any idea who much they were looking at for it?

Big pennies Ash - Nice to see you although fleetingly brief. I'd like a Goliath - I'd turn it into an invalid chair type buggy and ride everywhere like some Yoksha-Nazi Davros...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Crap!

Bought a bag of crisps and a Yorkie and some dodgy shoulder boards as a stupid impulse buy and that was it. Defo seems to be getting less and less interesting stuff and more and more bad quality stuff to spend your green on. :?

Good to see a few folks and have a natter though.

Saw you pass by in you black leather U Boot jacket I think it was..... couldn't catch you for a quick chinwag but must do so soon. Twas a shade subdued there this year but I didn't have the urge to buy anything (except the Goliath which only just fitted in the boot of the car )

Should have ran up and slapped me mate - 'appen I was walking round in that 'there's gotta be something to buy' daze that seems to come over me at these things. :oops:

Yup, need a decent chat - the signal always seems to conk out when on the phone.

Not bad for me, managed to empty my wallet as usual. Most of the repro stuff was pants...

Got myself a couple of pieces of bling and a couple of really nice wooden ordnance crates - a 3.7cm PaK box and a BIG pioneers box (Packkiste Nr 10) to put all me stuff in.

I nearly bought a copy of the latest WW2 Re-enactors magazine but was put off by the ugly sods on the front cover...

Some nice stuff on display, some bloody awful crap that should either have been weighed in or left buried. Prices very variable from one end to the other, cup of coffee £1.70!! entry £10, which in my humble opinion is kicking the arse out of it a wee bit.
I had trouble finding anything to spend money on, even reasonal impulse buys were thin on the ground. Good to see friends though.
Oh, and anyone who thinks they can wear a bloody great bergan in a packed hall and constantly push through and then turn around is a twot of monumental proportions, and yes there were dozens of them, it's got a bloody handle on the top so you can carry it like a bag!!! Only shoplifters and wannabe's wear rucksacks where I come from.
