  1. Wow...what talent! Any backstory on that helicopter?

    • Hi Craig,
      RC, large model from the Bell Company. The pilot gave a demonstration, hovering for 10 minutes at two feet height.
      No flying, due to safety regulations.

  2. That port dio is pretty cool! Lots of neat stuff on display.

  3. Some very talented ship modellers. Well, it is the Netherlands, after all!

  4. Thanks all for the positive comments. You can imagine, wondering around for hours and still missed a lot of what is going on.
    Regards, Dirk
