May 2022 Forth and Clyde area group meeting

This month's meeting saw a slight dip in attendance ... not due to any virus, but to holiday fever. Most of the group were unaccountably absent. Perhaps they were in Italy for the Eurovision song contest final? At least one was talking about a foreign trip, although it transpired that "foreign" meant Berwick-upon-Tweed.

The loyal few who remained true to our 2mm vows met at Graham's home in Edinburgh - no names no pack drill - and registered a symbolic protest by doing very little modelling, but much talking and tea-drinking. A little gentle Humbrol enamelling of a 2mmSA Toad E kit was undertaken, a propelling pencil applied to a sketch pad ... there was animated discussion of the monthly illustrated papers: nothing too strenuous.

We expect normal service to be resumed next month - the meeting (hopefully back at ESME's excellent Almondell headquarters) will exceptionally be on the first weekend of June, to allow a pause before the 2mmSA Diamond Jubilee show in Derby and the Perth exhibition on the 18/19 and 25/26 weekends respectively. See you there!
