This year I had agreed to accompany Len Cooksey of Ivanhoe Figures to help run his trade stand. And so it was that at 0600 hours on Sunday we convened on my drive, loaded up the car and set off. The journey went smoothly enough, despite thick fog patches and we soon found the new venue for the show - the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
The hall was large and spacious but bloody freezing, so it was a relief to have to run around setting up the stand. I particularly wanted to speak to Len about his own small range of resin cast Afghan war (the Soviet one) figures as I remembered that the set included a Russian Motor Rifle Trooper. Len had kindly put a couple aside for me (see above) so I'll get these painted up and more than likely ask him to cast up some more.
There is (of course) more to come from this show - stay tuned!
