Well lads I hope everyone enjoyed the good old Warley war!! Battling through the crowd.
I have got to say I really enjoyed the whole event on Saturday. Met up with Wrenneire aka Dave and John Hamilton at Ardmore. I hope your colleague was ok after his fall.
Also meeting up with Patrick and Fran on the IRM/Accurascale stand and taking the time to have a chat and see the new products due soon, great stuff.
But just as I left the show and entered the Starbucks queue I happen to say hello to Paddy Murphy. This is a man I have only seen once before in my life.
So he said to wait a couple of minutes and he would be back.
Sure enough as I was collecting my coffee he came back and for the next hour we chatted. He gave an amazing insight into the problem child the 121 had been and the various difficulties he had faced and at the same time keeping the price as sensible as possible.
He then unwrapped some samples and showed the various options covered and the enormous moulding challenges. It was the highlight of the show for me. Thanks Paddy for taking the time to talk but also the fantastic models produced over the years.
And if anyone wants to complain about the 121’s being late take time to consider how blessed we have been for such a small market. Gareth
