The first show at the Macron Stadium was a resounding success. For a veteran of many shows; I can, with a degree of authority, state that this was one of the best model shows ever. The space; natural lighting; friendly atmosphere; models on displays and bargain on offer were second to none. The Bolton Show, being the first show of the season was always a highlight, but yesterdays show was an absolute classic. I expect to see many positive write ups over the coming days.
For the SIG, Aussie flu claimed a victim with Stalwart Mr Hardwick having to rest. Here are a few pictures of our display, plus a couple of excellent builds on the host clubs table.
A last show in its current location, with Bolton IPMS looking to love to a larger venue next year. For the SIG display we decided to give the Wingman display another outing.
The Bolton Model Show, like many SIGs and Clubs is the first outing of the year. The snow reports made a few of wonder if we would make it, but in the end we had no weather related problems.
The show was the first outing for the Gulf War display, something that will evolve over the year until its zenith at Telford. Andy Hardwick Diavoli Rossi scheme also made another outing, and it has garnered quite a bit of press since the show. Testament, if one was needed for our theme displays.
