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).

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.

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.
