Hello Rolight. I used to go there. My VW beetle would have been in the car park with it's inch pincher paint design. Do you remember seeing it? Nice movies by the way.

I was selling the show guides at these shows for a few years whilst my friend Dave Watts was producing them. Great times, love indoor shows.

Sorry, didn't realise your name was the same!

He's still around but got into RC planes whilst still at SPR, now mixes nitro fuel for RC models.

He scratch built an A-class motorhome in his back garden for travelling to RC shows & going on skiing trips to France. Built a 2 seater plane (also in his back garden!) & flies it all over, operates a grass airfield near Tonbridge.

Was introduced to Dave once at a Crystal Palace show by I think it was Phil Morris, could be wrong about the name, was a funny moment, glad to hear he's still doing something of interest. Dave.
