Stayed at home to watch the end of the grand prix so got to Bromham about
9:30, quick chat to Martin P and a few non NG chaps, bacon roll and off again after in under 45 mins!
Did I buy anything? 'Fraid so, a whole tenner to Norman Groom secured a 1977 facsimile copy of 'The Model Engineer' Vol. 11 (1904) and some part built model engineering projects including the bones of a tiny V4 engine (3/4" x
3/4" bore and stroke), no heads or valvegear but probably intended for hot fog. Why did I buy it - I'm no model engineer, not exactly ham fisted but definitely think any thread smaller than about 4BA should be illegal - well I briefly fantasised about turning it into a double alpha stirling engine but in reality it will probably sit on the shelf for the foreseeable future and be brought down occasionally just to marvel at the tiny 'knife and fork' con rods!
