Workshop Wednesday – Wings, Wood and Wings

So many jobs to do, so little time… Here’s a round-up of what’s been going on in the Shopland Collection workshops.

The Spitfire wing trailer/DJ booth has had new bracing added, and the wings have finally been given a coat of paint on the backs.

Show equipment and signage (Including bus stop signs for our new buggy service) – lots of painting involved.

The ‘Little Lady’ Jeep moves forward as the wings and tub have been rubbed down and put into primer.

One of the new ‘sets’ for 2015 is the Kitchen area, where Seren will be doing cooking demonstrations. The worktop for this has been given a spruce up, with some sanding and coat of Danish Oil.


What would a 1940s show without a few hundred sandbags be? We’ve been filling plenty of them up, luckily we have an almost unlimited supply of sawdust thanks to our headquarters being in a sawmill!

Another new feature for 2015 is the photo booth – Dave is kindly lending us his restored Anderson Shelter for this – we did a test assembly on the driveway.

Lastly, Mark’s Bedford CF pick up truck has been given a new coat of paint, just in time to be pressed into service for the show!
