You're talking to a guy who lived Meccano for 10 years. I once built a bus with an automatic gearbox .... :D
I'm impressed Mark, in my day you where lucky to get 4 wheels in a set never mind any form of motor.

Re: Owston meet 2019 >1&2 June

Sorry mark, but its only just in June..
I have a lot on during the Easter to may bank holiday run so it's not possible for me.
It somehow seems better when the weather's reasonable and the light nights.
I can't do it after summer.
What is it in June...?

Owston meet 2019 >1&2 June

As the title says I have checked the availability for 2019 and this weekend looks good so I have booked it.
No need to say if your attending at this point, but if your planning to come to our next meet, hopefully it gives you time to plan around it.
Thanks....
