MK1, Nylon Gag Industies

Post by The Nylon Gag » Fri Aug 30, 2013 7:34 pm

Evenin All,

Returned from England on Sunday at 4pm into Miami.
Had a great vacation in England, a week is never enough but i got to spend some quality time with my sick step father.
A sad visit but a very rewarding one. ;D

Whilst i was home a met up with two young fellows from MSC, we spent a wonderful afternoon talking plastic and drinking Guiness.
It was great to finally meet some people through these great websites we visit.

Thank you, Dicky and Chris for a very entertaining afternoon.
If you have the chance to meet up with fellow modellers from these web sites i urge you to do it.
It was great to put a face and personallity to someone i had only 'talked' to through the internet.

Only started back on the MK.1 on Wednesday night suffering from chronic jet lag.

This is getting faster and faster folks soooooooo,

The louder you screem the faster we go,

As they would say at a fun fair in England in the 80's.

God I'm old. ;D

But , AnyHoo,.........

Incredible work! I love tugs and such, and this is a really cool design for one. :)
