More pictures can be found in my Flickr album of the rally.

As with last year, KMK had invited several modellers to give a workshop/demonstration.
Among these was Fabrice Maréchal, a well known car builder. I decided against attending his workshop and chose to go to the workshop by Andrew Argent where he showed how to do some groundwork (walls, bushes and other details).
