Wish I could attend but I live too far away.I am a collector of mini-ship models. I have a collection of 24 "Mercator" scale models of most of my favourite ships, even one of my favourite paddle steamer "PS Waverley". My son and his wife went on a cruise and caught on to the ship thing and me being an old seafarer they buy me one every Xmas...talk about second childhood?

There Are Only A Few Days Left And Already The Response Has Been Good But There Is Always Room For Some More.
Many People Have Said They Are Interested But Cannot Make The Journey To Birmingham. If You Are One Of These Please Feel Free To Send Any Thoughts You May Have And We Will Take Them Into Account At The Meeting. The Next Step I Envisage Will Be The Setting Up Of Regional Groups So That Is When You Can Get Involved. But, We Must Know You Are Out There.
Any Thoughts Will Be Seriously Welcomed And Could Well Form The Backbone Of This Club, So Get Involved And Be A Part Of It.
