You wouldn’t have enough memory capacity nor battery power… I had over 9000 pics from when I was there, and my wife pulled the external drive cord without first ejecting it… and I lost everything…

Happy Birthday when it comes around. Enjoy the time there, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate David.

Make sure you book ahead just in case

@CMOT already done mate, museum and hotel bagged and tagged :slight_smile:

@Klaus-Adler David, Happy Birthday :birthday:!

That should be a fantastic visit and lots of fun! Hopefully, there will be a little extra time to check out the museum’s gift shop too!

@Armor_Buff Wade if i buy any more models there maybe an expensive divorce on the cards lol

well folks, I’m a 40 minutes drive from the museum. I’m near Blandford Forum in a place called Child Okeford, which is a very rural setting.

tomorrow I depart for a full day at the museum, hopefully it’s mostly indoors as it scheduled to rain all day tomorrow.

Its all indoors bud and I highly recommend Duxford on your way back as that will take two days easily.

@CMOT it’s a no go on duxford, after bovington, the next stop is Blackpool for the little wife to enjoy herself for a bit.

Have fun David.

Hope you had fun! That trip is for sure on my bucket list!

I don’t suppose you might have gotten some pictures of their archer?

If he didn’t, there are some here:

…and the one that I caressed two weeks ago in the Australian Armour and Artilley Museum is the subject of a walkaround here:
