Yeah - this is the last year my company is allowing me to buy more vacation - so figured I better get there this year while I have the time.

Quite possibly!

Ryan - would be good to see you there.

Or before/after in London if nothing else.

I have always wanted to go to that show. But this year is certainly not the year for me. Maybe next.

Well this trip will not be as 'vacationy' as the last.

I fly in on Sat 18 July early morning at Heathrow and head to Folkstone - then back out on Mon the 27th in the late afternoon.

So looks like I will get to be at two ends of great runs events this year.

This is the last War & Peace show - the main organizers are calling it quits.

Dammit.  If I knew this was the last one, I would have booked a ticket out there.  I've got a summer session class during most of July.

28 days is a little close to plan and pay for a trip out that way. It is a shame because I did want to make one of them.

First - it was announced that somebody has bought the W&P show - so it will continue - I imagine there will some changes - but hopefully only for the better.

For next year at least it is in the same location - after that - who knows.

And now for some pics:

Arrived that Saturday - to find that I was the first person from our group - so ditched my bags in the OT-90 and headed the 2 miles to the nearest pub


I di not take a ton pf pics this time - others will and will do much better jobs - but I did take some pics of thins that interested me.

Like the Berlin Wall set up




We did two Cold War battle displays this year.
Small Recon unit - the rest in Obr69 full color gear jumping out of the OT-90 - to advance on the British troops


Riding into the fray on the top of a BRDM is really cool!


Bought a fair amount of stuff - not as much as last time - but enough. Some bought for others - some for me ;-)


Most happy with picking up 2 Mon-50s at the show - to add to the 2 I had bought earlier this year and picked up from one of the guys at the show.


Got to ride around in a South African Buffel (there were two in the SADF setup next to ours.) Was going to be able to drive it until it poured that night and washed out that chance...



Ryan and James stopped by on the second Saturday and we had a good time walking through all the vendor tents and chatting.

Rest of my is are here:

I hope you stub your toe carrying those MON-50's to wherever you're going to proudly display them.

Are the fragmentation matrixes intact?  On my Inert MON-50 the back plastic panel can be separated from the front.  It is friction fit with some tabs securing it.

Back plates are the same - these are completely empty - on of the UK guys had one with the frag matrix - but did not want to risk trying to get that in - as a checked luggage item ;-)
