IPMS Scale ModelWorld 2011

In one months time I will be visiting the IPMS Scale ModelWorld 2011 show at The International Centre, Telford. This is the main IPMS (International Plastic Modellers Society) meeting of the year with thousand of visitors from all over the world and hundreds of displays. In my opinion one of the best (if not the best) model shows in the world. Quite a claim, but in this case well deserved.  Full details can be found HERE

Last year I spent a full day studying the models and retailers on display and wrote nine separate Blog entries detailing some of the fantastic models I saw, for details go to Wargame Shows Labels or this LINK

My own plans are to visit the show on Sunday 13th November. I find the Sunday is a little quieter and as the main judging has taken place, you can see the competition entries/winners without interfering with the judges.

I have also convinced Dave (from Grand Manner) that he should come with me.  I have in previous years told him of the event, but this year he has agreed to come along.

For anyone interested in model making, model collecting, aviation, military history or just looking for a great day out, I would recommend this 100%. Just remember to bring lots of money as the choices on display are 'mouth-watering' and very hard to resist.

It is my intention to take many more photos and post them on this Blog, but seriously - if you can, please come along, I assure you that you will not be disappoint. This may sound like an advert - but I have no official connection with the IPMS group (although maybe I should join). I just feel that modellers everywhere deserve to see this exhibition at least once.
