IPMS Scale ModelWorld 2010 part two

I thought I would include in this report some photos showing the general layout and some of the major trade stands. I will post more photos showing the club displays and some 'spectaculars' later.....

Photo One - The Replica Spitfire which dominated the Competition and Kit Swap area (Hall one).


Photos Two and Three - Show the sight that greets you when you move from the Spitfire Hall and into the first display hall (Hall two). First to the left.

And then to the left.

These images show some of the trade stands. First Air Molds.

These two show Comet Models, stacked high with Sci-Fi kits of all descriptions. It was a scrum (a very enjoyable scrum) to see all the kits and magazines.


Then Mr Models, Birmingham, The shop is usually just as haphazard.

The Huge Airfix Stand, they also had a children's build and paint section that was full all day.


I took this photos to show one of the new models from Airfix - a sort of Gundam what-if!

Military in Scale (they also had a display table, photos to follow).

Tamiya - a beautifully stocked display, but quiet!

Two shots of the very professional Revel display.


Another trade stand.

I hope that these give a flavour of what the show was like.
