The South Cheshire Militaire in Nantwich has firmly established itself as a personal favourite. It is a show that has that certain charm that is unique. It's a friendly show with a wide range of displays that differentiate it from the others shows on the scale model calender.
There were several new models on the display from myself (Hasegawa 109E and L 11 Schneewittchen) Andy Molyneaux (Great Wall Hobby Fw-189) and Rick Greenwood (1/72 Tamiya 109G6). `Rick's build was featured in Scale Aircraft Modelling Volume 41, Issue 05.
Moving on from the new builds, here are some pictures of the rest of our display.
Luftwaffe subjects remain popular on other tables too.
And the wrap things up, here are some photographs of the venue and some of the varied displays.
A new venue for the SIG members who displayed at the show, I would like to say we were suitably impressed. To top off a perfect day, Rob Bedford won a gold medal with his 109.
With a bit more space we were able to represent a more complete chronology of the German Air Force in it's various form. We have spotted some significant omissions though and we'll be working to plug these gaps over the coming months. In no particular order, here are a collection of photographs from our display.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed to the display.
