Telford Scale Model World 2012

Post  Parabat on Thu Dec 27 2012, 12:11

The following pictures were taken at the Telford Scale Model World show. Scale Model World is probably the world's biggest gathering of modellers, models, traders and displays. It encompasses the British national modelling championships and it is usually home to model companies new releases.
If you can only manage to attend one single model show in your life, it would have to be Telford!
Held in the first or second week of November, it is well worth the trip, just make sure you take a lot of money!

As you will see, the standard is high, and these were not even the models in the competition area. There were a lot of IPMS branches in attendance, from all over the world.

1/48 SAAF Buccaneer


1/32 F/A-18C Hornet in 'Agressor' camo


1/32 Greek Air Force F-4E. The yellow around the canopy is Tamiya tape.




1/32 F-4J(UK) of 74 Sqdn RAF


Detail of the 1/32 F-4J(UK). Note the 'Remove Before Flight' tags and end caps on the AIM-9L Sidewinders.


Another shot, this time of the cockpit, note the miniature helmets!

Just for fun, Wallace and Gromit!

I went this year for the first time and I must say the size shocked me. The models displayed were all to a superb standard and everybody was friendly and up for a talk. There were lots of bargains to be picked up, I got 3 dragon 1 72 Bradleys for only 21 pounds. I will post up some pictures later on,

According to the IPMS website, next year going to be even better than this year, expect something special in the attraction section, as it the anniversary. I'll be searching behind the soffa for any money when november comes around Rolling Eyes
I may go to the Hornchurch show, I have never been before,
