Our experiences and model displays at the Newbury IPMS model shows
2013 - 16th February
Unusually for February, we were out on the road again for the second time in the month. The show had moved to February from June. Four of us made the trip west to fly the flag for the club. It's a small, friendly show and well organised. We managed to get 36 models onto the table this time, though it was 37 at the end as I [Graham] managed to break my 1/144 Apache putting it back in its box. Super glue and magnifying glass required.
Tony won gold with HMS Howe and Brian picked up a bronze with his Valiant in the competition.
Those of you who purchase model magazines will note that our efforts at NewMod13 did not go unnoticed in the media. The April edition of the Airfix magazine sees us get a mention and three photographs: Dave T's Bf110G-4, Tony's Hunter T8 and a photo of our table. April's Model Aircraft magazine features a picture of Graham's Italian Navy AV-8B II Plus Harrier.
2012 - 2nd June
A quiet show, probably due to the clash with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and possibly the weather? However, a good day was had by all, and with a few different club members on hand, another set of models got to see the light of day amongst the regulars. Photos are by Dave Haskell and sadly he managed not to take any of his lovely Scharnhorst - modesty forbids, no doubt..
