Always bored on Bank Holidays? Never sure what to do?

Well this year get yourselves down to RAF London for a day out. The museum itself is fantastic but then add LEGO and you're onto a winner. Several Bricksetters are scheduled to appear. @LostInTranslation‌ @StormKitty‌ @cheshirecat‌ and @drdavewatford‌ so buy a ticket and see us there :)

(I'm not organising this event just there with Fairy Bricks but if there are any questions re the event in general I'll do my best to answer them)

    I'm booked to go now. I'll take my display of LEGO aircraft from the 1960's to the present day. It's great when kids eye up the set they have recently bought and their parents and even grandparents point our the ones they had in their day. :-)

    Excellent ! Do you have a list of what you'll be taking ? I'm also planning to attend, and if I can fill in any gaps with my collection of vintage sets then I will try to do so....

    It is NOT meant to be an all inclusive list but a compilation of aircraft that show the differing building styles and introduction of new elements and colours over the years. Something akin to a museum exhibit.

    Initially I had thought about building every aircraft but it seems a tad too fastidious for me.

    If you have some dandy's to bring along let me know (especially as I can make sure I produce a matching display card for them).

    Does anyone know where this is now being held?
    This page says it's no longer at RAF London / Hendon...

    It's now at Sandown Racecourse which is still inside the M25 so technically still London. We are there with the mosaic and the chance to win a Sydney Opera House while @drdavewatford‌ live builds another

    the chance to win a Sydney Opera House

    I guess I'd better bring some money then! ;)
