For those of you who are unaware Wings & Tracks is the first model comp for the year acting as a prelude to the mega Model Expo in June. This event showcases a collection of aircraft and military vehicles and almost anything related to the above such as dioramas and figures. Awards are covered for the usual place categories common with many competitions, but what sets this show apart from the others is that it has a theme related to aircraft and vehicles. This year’s theme for the ‘Golden Wing’ award was ‘Floatplane & Amphibious Aircraft’ and for the ‘Golden Sprocket’ award this was ‘Amphibians – Any AFV/Vehicle’.
The show itself was well attended including traders Brian from Wargame Miniatures and Scott from SMS. These guys put in a lot of effort and time to be at these shows and without their support and time these shows would not be what they are!
Drum roll please…………. and the winner for the ‘Golden Wing’ was our very own Martin Reid with his superb Wingnut Wing 1/32 Hansa-Brandenburg W.12 Early. Martin also took out 1st in its category for his Wingnut Wings Taupe which also won the ‘Entrants Choice – Best of Show’!. This is a fantastic effort and well deserved, as I know first hand the amount of work Martin has put into these kits.
