Now I can't smell the meths. Maybe the mild aroma of Moet et Chandon

That's about the level of it Martin.

Even the coal for the boilers was shiny, square and dust free - and each piece was the same size of course!

Can one person operate one of these boats? I looks like it would take at least 2, a pilot and an engineer.

It was an excellent show - some of the models are jaw-droppingly superb. However the better show is the Harrogate one in May each year. There are some pics somewhere on these pages of this year's show.

The operation of these full size boats can be a one-man thing,but I would think it's one of those things that is better shared with others - you need someone to open the champagne etc..
