@Nick-Carthew Don't mention Brexit. It's part of my daily job and a total nightmare. I don't want this to end in a political row, but I have never met any person, british or not, that could give me one real world benefit for anyone.
and Yes, I am dreaming to go the the UK later in november this year for another hobby (Telford IPMS scale modelling event). Done that for many years with a whole group (16 or something) as a kind of modelling pilgrimage; This year we would be 8 maximum. The rest does not want to go anymore -fear of customs-anger for brexit (if they don't want us anymore ...)-uncertainly about legal and insurance situation in case of an accident ...
I agree, politics should not be discussed on a navigation forum, but as you haven’t met anyone to give you a real world benefit, let me just say:
The UK vaccine programme has proved to be far better than the EU fumbled attempt and despite the EU making it incredibly difficult for the UK, Nissan has announced over £400million of investment in the UK post Brexit. Us Brits are still European, nothing has changed. Johnny Foreigner will still be made to feel very welcome when he visits the UK despite what you might read or hear from the politically motivated media.
As for legal matters, nothing has changed, your license and insurance is still valid and as before, you’ll need to bring your vehicle registration document the same as Brits do when we go abroad.
I understand that the UK is a bit of a Mecca when it comes to scale models. Timo ordered some from the UK for himself last Christmas. (They arrived ok so did my new MRA RouteXpert jacket, it arrived from MRA HQ two days after posting)
Tell your buddies that there is nothing to fear and they won’t notice any change at all.
