50th scale event OUDTSHOORN

Unread post by witisdiekleur » Fri Mar 29, 2019 2:37 pm

As I understand Oudtshoorn scale event in September going for its 50th time
Guys and ladies seen as above, someone planning to make it a success. There is a lot of scale models going around from Chris and Joe the guys that I knew and know then. Is it possible to line up enough modellers? I have already one guy and a half.
I for the matter going down to honour it as it was part of my life for a long time.
If this is not the 50th flyi-m I humbly excuse myself and delete this thread.
Regards
