Default Jetpower 2014 one week to go

One week until we should be there, our 12th year and still as excited as ever. Each year more British jet modellers go and come back again and again, we have a few virgins again this year, looking forward to some of the new things I know will surprise. Collecting one of the new scheme CARF Hawk's for a customer, plus need to decide if I need one of the surprise models that will be shown.
Guess the biggest thing about JP is the friends you meet again. Seven sleeps :-)

It is the pinnacle event for me and many others each year and I will be there first thing on Friday morning checking out all that is new on the jet scene. I am old enough to know better but I cannot help to get a bit excited about this event.

Manic last minute juggling here but looking forward to the 'long weekend'.
I'm in a different location this year, between Als Hobbies and Behotec in the first tent so those who might want GBRJET accessories come by to chat etc, have a new 'image' on the stand too - come and meet Catia

Don't forget to swing by the Jets-Munt booth.
The new M200XBL is being presented and to celebrate the 10th Aniversay of Jets-Munt.

A VT80 TURBINE will be raffled.

Just fill in your name and you might win the turbine.

The winner will be drawn on Sunday 13:00

If you can't make sunday 13:00, the turbine will be shipped to you.

Run down to JP 2014. I have a list of one model I can't wait to see. Not into giant models but this one is big! Known about it for a long time, its going to surprise :-)

Yes Paul, I'll look after your Hawk till you get back from C'wall. Have several kits to collect.
Jury out on weather, its not one to call till wed/thursday, but not cold :-)

We'd have to lay our cards on the table to see who was right but that would spoil things!...
