The exposition season is over! I spend a very successful and pleasant exposition weekend in Veldhoven near Eindhoven at the 4th Scale Model Challenge. The host Robert and his team made everything possible to make us feel welcome and make this event a success.

During this two days myself and my wife had the great pleasure to get to know Chris Clayton and his wife Helen, both very charming and friendly people. It was a pleasure talking to you! Those who don't know Chris Clayton, he whon Best of Show in Euromilitaire this year and also opened recently a new website to sell his figures

During the next weeks the modules of the diorama will still be accessible very easyily , so i will use this time to make some repairs on the castle. Nobody noticed it except my son, fortunately. The windows from the open part of the castle, made out of clear evergreen sheet with a decal simulating lead glass, is starting to literally melt from the outsides. Probably the long time effect of the superglue i attached them with. I did not know better 5 years ago.

After inquiry with him and a very pleasant mail exchange, Mark from Mark Miniatures arranged to get one of his standard stained glass sheets adapted to my special needs. I will use this product to refurbish my windows. Please visit him at

I will keep you updated!
