Poole Vikings (Dorset IPMS) Shows
Our experiences and model displays at the Poole Vikings (IPMS Dorset) model shows ...
2023 - 15th April
Les C, Bob L, Dave T, Graham J, Martin H and Jake T put on our first display of the year. A very enjoyable show, well attended with lots of chances to swell the bulging stashes.
2022 - 23rd April
A welcome return to the show circuit with Dave T, Les C, Mark I, Martin H, Jake T & Bob L making their way to Poole. This was a good show and always popular especially with the southern and southwest clubs. It was busy right into the afternoon and there was plenty of cheap kits available for those who who needed to get a last ditch Six Month Challenge purchase. Only downside was that the burger van ran out of everything mid afternoon including water for a tea!
2019 - 13th April
Les, Bob and Martin H attended this years show. The show was well attended with lots on display. Good natured banter was had between the three, our fellow modellers and the general public.
Les C managed to scoop the "The best model on Display Trophy".
2018 - 14th April
Les, Bob, Rick, Chris K & Dave W braved the fog and attended this years show, with all arriving at the same time in the car park (miracles do happen). The show was warm and friendly and well attended with lots on display. A few bargains were bought and much good natured banter was had between the not so famous five, our fellow modellers and the general public.
Chris K managed to scoop a gold certificate for his Model of a model display.
2017 - 8th April
Chris K, Martin, Les and Graham J made the journey to this year's show to represent the club. Aside from an interesting detour off the A31 due to a bike race initiated traffic jam, it was a long but uneventful journey. The shw itself was a fairly quiet affair, but well organised and free of any hassle. We had a laugh, bought a few books and models - naturally - and even had the opportuity to look at a few models and talk to our fellow hobbyists. What more could you ask for?
