Weather Report:

The Big L. is totaly cloud covered at the moment.
However, this has been the case over the last few days and normally, (apart from yesterday) the cloud starts to break up after a few hours of sunshine.
Apart from over the mountain, the sky has broken cloud.

The wind is SW aprox 25 - 35 Kph. Again, going on past days, the wind will probably increase in strength over the next few hours.

I'll let you know more in an hour's time

Yeah Dennis, conditions continue to improve at the moment..........

At 07.15 the lowest 25% of mount Lienster was clear of cloud. (Nine Stones is about 75% up the mountain)

Rest of the sky has broken cloud (Stratocumulus for the technical amongst you) which is continuing to allow periods of strong sunshine here on tera firma.

Winds continue from the SW varing in speed from aprox 20 to maybe 30Km/h

Lets hope things improve further. Come on you guys, "Wakey! Wakey! rise and shine, hands off your c*cks and put on your socks!" :lol:

Hi all

Here are a few pics from Retroplane 2009, taken over the weekend. A part from the weather, it was a great event, with many fantastic scale models on show, well done to Fred, Joe and all those involved in organising the event.

MACI gallery

Folks,

MACI webmaster (Finbar Constant) has kindly agreed to post some of Retroplane2009 pictures on their website (I sent him the link to my
collection).
However, he asked me to make a small comments (capture) to each photo.
It would be great if somebody will help me to name models/people pictured.
Or just post here own pictures will 'comments'.

Or maybe somebody could write a small article for MACI's Filghtlines magazine.

Thanks in advance,
Dennis
