Is it just me or does the more lanky of the presenters look remarkably like a young John Cleese?

I just watched the first 2 episodes on You Tube which I fond thoroughly entertaining and instructive.

The presenters are unpretentious and don't dominate the proceedings.

It was great to see Steve Flint on film.

The participants came across as everyday folk with only a slight hint of eccentricity.

And the best layouts won.

Thanks to Jon from Oz for the tip-off about YOU tube.

best regards,



Joe

 :bounce: I have been watching the great model railway challenge, mainly because there's nothing else on. I have noticed it's all OO no N, but I have been inspired by it. So does anybody know where you can get a WW1 truck on a stick that goes round and round at 100mph and a big rubber dinosaur in 1:148scale

I'm on a bus on my phone at the moment, so can't redirect you, but there is already a huge thread on this.

I just watched the 4th episode tonight and I must say that Tim Shaw is much better as a presenter on this than on Car SOS, with its contrived, fake, "blags."

To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Seems for once, we have the advantage here in Aus!

Fed up with getting messages like you can't see this cos you're not in the UK.

Well it's coming through loud and clear on YouTube!  :P ;) :thumbsup:
