2016 - 20th February

We were back in Hall 4 for this visit and located under the nose of Concorde (fortunately no signs of droop here, can't say the same is true everywhere else). Bob L, Brian, Chris K, Dave W, Dave T, Graham C, Les, Martin and Tony H manned up for today's display effort. Tony being able to double up whilst trying to secure new members for the IPMS. Graham J was looking after the Harrier SIG (tut, tut). Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the chaps had some success in the competition (bronze awards for Brian, Tony H and Chris K; gold for Martin).

2015 - 24th October

Well, our table, manned by Ian, Chris K, Dave H and Graham J was sited right next to the viewing gallery and exit to the airfield.

2015 - 21st February

Tony, Brian, Dave W, Dave T, Graham C, Martin and Les were on table manning duty for this show.
Congratulations to Brian and Martin for gaining silver awards in the competition: Brian for his Typhoon and Martin for his running pilot figure.

2014 - 15th February

Tony, Les, Dave T, Dave W and Graham made the relatively long drive down to Yeovilton.

2013 - 9th February

A cold, wet and misty morning saw us make the relatively long drive down to Yeovilton for the show. We had a slightly different position this year, being sited right next to the tail of the P.1127 and the Bristol BS100 engine. The sounds of Brian's motorised Zero were regularly trumped with the sound of the Pegasus engine on the display video. We had some winners in the competition: Tony with a first for HMS Howe and Martin a second with one of his dioramas.
There were 9 of us there from the club.

2012 - 11th February

Despite the relatively long distance to get to the show, we had a good turn out of members and models, with nearly 60 models on display. I'll make no further comment about the members' display. The position of the table adjacent to the Fairey FD.2 record-breaking aircraft was less than ideal, unless of course you had a need to keep banging your head on the air brakes. Despite this handicap and attention diverter, we had our fair share of visitors to the stand and many conversations ensued. Tony's Hunter received a lot of interest and his A-10 was a crowd pleaser. Tony also won a 1st in the figure section of the competition.

Martin's lighting system was an absolute necessity - without it we would have had to have handed out torches. Hopefully we will not get placed here in future and all clubs get the opportunity to enjoy the experience on a rotational basis.

Brian's 1/24th scale Typhoon won him a silver in the competition. As you can see, Brian doesn't do out-of-the-box builds.

... Brian's motorised section - as usual it kept the under 7s and the over 70s amused and enthralled.
Yeovilton Feb 2012
Actually the table was straight, but the photographer was too busy watching out for passers-by to concentrate on the shot!
Yeovilton Feb 2012
Brian captured the table much better than me
