It has reminded me that I first met our man, Woodsy in person, at the previous' TV21' Fanderson convention way back in 2010.
In those fledgling days of the blog, I was but a humble, but enthusiastic contributor, and used the camera on my phone to take pictures. Luckily, my mate Andy had a much better camera and was able to take a few close ups of some of the attending guests, including Gerry Anderson and puppet sculptor, John Blundall, both who are sadly no longer with us.
Other guests from that convention included voice artist Gary Files (pictured below), who was the voice of Captain Magenta in Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons, and Matthew Harding in The Secret Service.
Model maker and designer, Mike Trim, and model maker Alan Shubrook, (both pictured below) talked about their days at Century 21, and working with 'The Guv'nor', Derek Meddings.
Here's Alan doing what looks like his famous puppet impression!
There were quite a few original models too, mainly from Space: 1999.
To pinch a phrase from Woodsy, the whole event was champion!
