W&T was on today and was a great show with around 100 entries on the tables. The standard was as high as usual, which gave the judges a real challenge to come up with the placings. This event was supported by a number of traders who made sure we poor old modellers emptied our wallets – a terrible sight!
Once again the IPMS boys and the traders made this a great day – click here for some pics.
Just a quick reminder that Wings & Tracks 2020 is on this Sunday, so it would be great to see you all there.
Scroll down to see my previous post which contains additional details.
Our March meeting went very well and we had some great discussions on various topics. Our meeting table was impressively full included many boxing’s of newly purchased kits, a few built kits as well as some new products.
We also hosted the presentation for our BAB (Build A Bitch) and Gunna Build which was a carry over from last years efforts.
The BAB is a mini event where the builder has to complete or get very close to completing a nasty kit. It may be nasty for reasons such as:
- age of kit
- horrible fit of parts
- terrible plastic quality
- just plain ugly
- difficult to construct
- way out of your comfort zone
The Gunna Build is also a mini event, where the builder selects a kit from the stash that is no more than 25% complete or completely fresh. Generally its a kit that you wanted to build but never really got there, or one that you started but it ended up as a shelf queen.
The three place getter’s for the Gunna Build:
- 1st – Mike Dawkins
- 2nd – Martin Reid
- 3rd – Michael Turner
Winner for the Build A Bitch award – Martin Reid.
Model Expo 2020 is getting closer and so is our club display. I wont give anything away, but it will be a unique display which will invoke some thought as to why we build scale models.
