Last weekend saw the SIG travel to the RAF Museum Cosford. We were lucky to be placed next to one of my favourite aircraft, the FW 190. A chance to collect a few more images for the walkaround page was taken.
we were in a busy spot opposite PM Models / Flory Models, who were themselves nestled under the wing of the Ju-88.
thanks to all the SIG members who contributed to the display ands thanks to the organisers who put on a splendid show.
Yesterday the SIG visited the Canberra Club at Bae Salmlesbury to attend a new show on the calendar run by IPMS Lancashire. The SIG members who attended had a really good time at the show and we look forward to attending again next year. Our ace builder, Rob Bedford managed to add another medal to the silverware cabinet.
I managed to get pictures of most of the models that were on display. Our next display is only a few weeks away at Driffield. Follow this link for our show calendar.
There are a couple of things that combine to create a classic model show. Yesterday's IPMS Bolton Model Show had them in spades. The Macron Stadium and the IPMS Bolton team provided us with plenty of space and natural lighting; parking facilities were first rate (and free of charge); the food on offer was good; there were plenty of bargains and the quality of displays around the show were second rate. I expect that the modelling press and the Internet forums will confirm that the show was a classic. In fact, it was one of the best shows....ever!
From the SIGs point of view, we had a good amount of interest and we have signed up a couple of new (and returning) members. As final bonus, I got my hands on an IPMS (UK) seam scraper too!
We've done it, a debut for the new, or should that be resurgent Luftwaffe SIG. Here are some photographs from the models that were on display over the Saturday and Sunday at SMW in Telford.
With the rather late switchover in administration, the display is somewhat embryonic but I think it bodes well for the future of the SIG in it mission to represent German military aviation in all its various guises.
Thanks to all the SIG members who contributed to the display.
