good idea about cancelled shoes, I posted yesterday about the Scottish nationals being scrapped which is a shame.

thus far Edinburgh and Glasgow shows are still on as they are scheduled for later on in the year.

Nice one Lucky, let's hope that SMW is far enough in the future that they don't need to cancel it?

David, Mal, lets hope we do still get some shows in this year but at the moment I think we should just concentrate on staying safe and make use of being stuck indoors, although I've just been identified as a key worker so no extra modelling time for me.

Oh couple more shows added to the list

I and my wife have been identified as key workers as well, and it's made me curious as what do? you can message me in private if you don't want to discuss it in an open forum.

You key workers need to stay safe

I'm hoping the show closures don't affect me. I only get to 2 in the year anyway, the local one in September and SMW. I would hope that they are far enough in the future not to be affected?
Thanks again for putting this up Lucky

it was announced that the air show in July near Edinburgh at the museum of flight has been cancelled as well. I know it's not strictly speaking modelling but I thought I was worth a mention.

David still valid even if not modelling, that's a nice museum, visited it a couple of years back when I was sent up to Eurocentral outside Glasgow to stand in for the manager there. Oh of course I visited Edinburgh Castle as well over a weekend.

Yeah Scot nats is only confirmed cancellation in Scotland at present. The rest up here are later on in the year.
I know the lock down is hard and it means we cant all catch up at the shows, but it does give us a great oppurtunity to build build build
I just wish everyone to stay safe and healthy.

I thought that November was far enough in the future to avoid the dreaded covid 19. Alas it looks like we are stuck with the virus for a wee bit longer.
I will miss meeting up at Telford with Bulldogs this year as I have really enjoyed attending the last 4.
Stay safe everyone, look forward to catching up at some point.....and seeing all of your lockdown builds.
