Ollie flew the flag for us at the show and managed to put on a very good display of Tornados ...GR1s and F3s in 1/72 , 1/48 and some big 32nd scale kits.
Centre of attention was his recent build of the new tool Revell 1/48 kit made out of the box in the very eye-catching box-art scheme. As an added bonus a 1/1 scale "work in progress" is parked up just outside the hall where the models were displayed !
A very enjoyable show !!
The new venue was a brilliant success....light and airy , loads of space and decent canteen too.
I had booked two tables and I thought "oh no ...not enough ! "
Thankfully there where a lot of spare tables that had not been needed for the show set up so we got two extra ...Phew !! Space for the Tonkas .
Andy Mk2 had the idea of putting the box contents of the new Revell kit on display and it certainly got lots of attention and no doubt a few sales for the traders.
Cleveland club member Greg brought his newly finished Revell 1/32 kit along ( lovely it is too ! ) but he put it on the Cleveland tables....we tried , unsuccessfully , to kidnap it and stick it on the SIG tables !!
I cant overstate just how much better this show was compared to last years ......everyone I spoke to had nothing but praise for the larger venue and the set up ....well done to all at IPMS Tyneside for putting on a great Show and Im sure it will now go from strength to strength at its new home.
