Michael Messer - like a kid in a candy store!

Alan Messer - our very patient photographer examines a Triolian. At the start of the two weeks Alan had way more hair, but trying to eliminate glare and reflections from newly polished Nationals took it's toll!

This is a beautifully hand-painted & restored National Triolian uke When Colin found it had been stripped of it's paint and then chrome(!) plated very badly. The chrome was lifting off and could literally be picked off with a fingernail! So rather than try and reproduce the origional paintwork, Steve Evans of Beltona took it apart and had the chrome stripped using reverse-electroplating.

Ali Allen, a set painter and designer in Leeds, UK (who designed the Beltona logo) then hand painted it, and Steve Evans then rebuilt it. Thanks Steve and Ali!!

I didn't know where to put this - so why not on this page? ;-)
