TELFORD 2019

Recommended Posts

Good to see everyone again, although I didn't see "everyone", as I know I missed some of you: perhaps next year. 

 

I know it was cheeky to leave some 1:48 purchases behind the stand, but there was some 1:32 aftermarket in the bag as well, honest!  My bargain of the day was a Dragon F-6D Mustang from the kitswap, and when I opened the box back at the stand, I found two decal sheets and an etched fret from the standard P-51D boxing in addition to the kit decals.  There was also another decal sheet with some SEAC roundels and serial decals for KM545; contrary to what I thought, this was an RAF Mustang.  Was it from another boxing, or what, I wonder?

 

Even with all those decals, I had to invest in an aftermarket sheet https://www.kitsworld.co.uk/index.php?CATEGORY=3&SUB=4&THISPAGE=1&RADIOSORT=4&PICFILE=453&STKNR=453&STRH=3332&ORDN=2632&RNZ=573827

 

There was some great modelling on display, not just in the competition, but all around the halls.  Superb show as usual, well done to all the organisers and volunteers.

Good to see you too Maru.  Thanks for the birthday wishes, and hopefully see you at SMW next year - or even at Cosford perhaps?

I've just published my photos from Sunday...
No extensive editing this time. So there's a lot of them....
The quality is not great in many cases, but I think the atmosphere is there.

Lovely pictures and thank you for sharing. Highlights of the show was that beautiful Fokker E.1 on the competition table and Leo Stephenson's Gotha.

... Seriously, though, how on earth does one navigate the entire show and manage to see everything in two days? ..

In my case, one doesn't.  I must have seen less than 50% of the displays, visited nothing like all the traders, and just didn't get upstairs to the competition.  The rest of the time was either manning the LSP stand or my club stand, or simply standing nattering.  Every time I went from A to B, I'd bump into at least one person I know and we'd stop for a chat.  And I wouldn't change any of it, it's what makes SMW so great.

I have a similar problem at our local event. I try to hit all of the vendors first, then a quick run through of the contest area, but as frequently as not, spend most of the time running my mouth with all of the fellas I really only see once a year.

Jura, thanks for sharing those incredible pictures! Seriously, though, how on earth does one navigate the entire show and manage to see everything in two days? Wow, just WOW! That's freakin' crazy!

 

Cheers,

Wolf

 

I'm glad you like the pictures.
For the show, I have made a few rules for myself, based on my previous visits.

1st - Make a plan - what you want to see/visit/buy at home, before the show.
2nd - Make sure the plan travels with you.

3rd- Don't take out the camera on first day!
4th - As you don't really need any new kit to buy, don't go to the Kit Swap area and don't even try to browse through the hoards of kits around!
5th - Try to stick to the plan at least twice a day!

 

Still, I'm sure I haven't seen everything  that there was to see. 
And I know I haven't captured many things on my camera either.

Maybe next time...

 

Cheers.

I think that's a common sense plan Kev, my problem is that there are 2 types of 'shoppers',

those travelling clockwise and those travelling counter-clockwise.   :wacko:

Always fun anyway.

Thanks for compliment!
Those are my pictures, posted above. 
I was asked by the "themodellingnews.com" crew to contribute, and I've agreed, without hesitation.
Cheers.
