Abingdon IPMS Shows
Our experiences and model displays at the Abingdon IPMS model shows ...
2019 - 5th October
Dave T, Les C, Bob L, Martin H and Martin S took on the Oxford run to put on this years display. It was well received with lots of interest shown. Lots of friendly banter with friends and fellow modellers.
At the end of the show we had a very pleasant surprise! we had been voted the Best Club Display for the second year running and presented with a lovely trophy and certificate.
2018 - 29th September
Dave W, Rick D, Chris K and Martin H braved the Oxford run to put on this years display. It was well received with lots of interest shown. Lots of friendly banter with friends and fellow modellers, more loft insulation being bought by Dave.
At the end of the show we had a very pleasant surprise! we had been voted the Best Club Display and presented with a lovely trophy and certificate. A great day out, it is rumoured Dave W was heard to mutter "My Precious" but there are no witnesses LOL
2017 - 30th September
Dave T, Les and Graham J ventured out on a lovely Autumnal day to this year's show and offered up 28 models for inspection - quality not quantity some would say, except we can't find them to quote them directly! We had a few enquiries about modelling techniques and a few comments about inaccuracies in some of our models. You can always rely on a rivet counter when you need one. As usual, faultless organisation and a warm welcome.
2016 - 1st October
A misty Autumnal morning saw Chris K, Tim Ev, Les, Ian and Graham J head west and north to this year's show. An early arrival gave us lots of time to do the set-up and we were ready to go half hour before opening time. The organisers then came along and asked us if we would like to extend our display to the table next door due to a no-show. Fortunately Ian had a few extra models and we duly obliged. Once again it was a quiet show, allowing us plenty of time to source some bargains (not as many as we would have liked) and talk to our felllow modellers from other clubs. As usual, faultless organisation, it's just a shame that they cannot get more visitors in through the door.
