Of course , when it came to getting Alan to do any work it was a different story . No matter how much we all tried we couldn't get him off his backside .

Indeed it was good to relax while Frank's son, Thomas, was doing such excellent work:

Hi Nick,

You have to know that Alan had to to another very hard job, seen on your picture. He had to make advertisement for our exhibition in May and he caught a cold some days before too.

BTW: What was happened, that you were placed in the corner? I think I ask the stand master Jacq next time.

I was in Dortmund on Sunday to load up the layouts of Jacq and Abd to transport both to Leverkusen. It's stunning to see this layouts in real and working.

Thanks for the photo; it’s amazing to me that modelers look the same across the pond, heck you could be from Iowa.

I had a text from Jacq this morning saying that he has been taken to hospital as he no longer has any lower body function . Quite what this means I am not sure . Whatever it means it doesn't sound good . I can't see him being able to attend Leverkusen in two weeks time , but fortunately the layout is already there so I guess the other boys will sort it out and have it running .

   I hope this is a temporary thing and that he is up and running as soon as possible ,

Jacq's jolly face at Dortmund certainly hid the tremendous problems he is currently experiencing. I sincerely hope that a remedy can be found for his condition.  I'm sure that he knows he has all our best wishes, and hope there is a chance that he will be able to go to Leverkusen.

...of course its temporary ,he will be there Alan. The Jacq I know is a tough guy he will overcome it.He has all our best wishes from down here.

Now to the show; The right hand corner of hall 4 was where the main attraction was. We were just neighbors with Jacqs fantastic layout; The Mill:



...and ours; Selcuk:



...some shots from The Mill from my perspective;

















.....having a break;



..he sure is enjoying himself;



....and is still reading a book about logging;



....enjoying ourselves after the show;



..last day, Franz has joined us to take both Selcuk and The Mill to Leverkuesen





...and finally, Nick feel no fret.....revenge has been taken; Wink

Great pictures, Erkut.     Standing there for 10 mins was the most strenuous thing I did.

What with all the Romulans, Klingons, and Vulcans who hang out in Iowa, our motley crew would hardly look unusual there.
Modellers always look the same in order to conceal their true identities.  

Nobody (except Nick) recognised the Hood, did they ?

I had a good time just looking at the pictures. It seems those who attended must have had a ball. Except for Nick, of course, who had to stand in the corner the whole time.

I am very concerned about Jacq. Somebody please keep us up to date on his progress.

the photo's do give a good impression.  And the atmosphere among the modellers was great.
I had already some walking problems since september and went around with a walking stick and later with a walker.
In march it appeared to improve a little. For the large exhibition in
dortmund I took my wheelchair with me tosit and see at the same time. the ability to push myself up from the bed or seat became harder on sunday.
when arriving home i managed to get my wheelchair out of the car while seating and get into it. i was unable to get upstairs so had to sleep on the couch.
overnight loss of sense below the hips got worse. the housedokter came and left and half an hour later i was on my way to hospital.
russ would be jalous with all those nice nurces around. butt they are making a gruyere cheese of me with taking their testing samples.
the prelim. diagnose is Cauda Echina Syndrome.  More info will follow.

Good to hear from you Jacq. I hope you get the very best treatment, especially from the nurses.

I looked up the condition on Wikipedia. Apparently doctors can treat it and sometimes full recovery is possible. In your case, let's all  hope for a full recovery. -- Russ
