Although I have to say I've not ever noticed anyone with excessive B.O. at any level of modeling shows, nor any obtrusively foul odors hanging about.

 

I definitely have at shows near me

I too was hoping to make the (long) trek to Telford this year, last visit was 2018, but we have “inconveniently” won tickets (after 10 years of trying) to the Strictly live show at Blackpool the weekend after! Two trips up the M5 and M6 on successive weekends is just too much I’m afraid to contemplate, so I’ll look forward to 2023! 

I have to poke some good-natured fun at my Brit friends on this one. Next year, the US Nats are in San Marcos, Texas. It will take some people who live in Texas longer to drive to Nats than it takes to drive across the UK. So, when you call that a "long" drive, I must admit that I snicker a little!! ;) I almost drove to Nats this year in Omaha - a 23 hour trip, one way. The only thing that stopped me was fuel prices.

lol - Is this a real issue?   

Not trying to be flippant at all, genuinely curious..............The Nationals here are usually fairly large yes, but normally in venues with enough space so that only certain areas get super crowded where you are jam packed together.  Although I have to say I've not ever noticed anyone with excessive B.O. at any level of modeling shows, nor any obtrusively foul odors hanging about.

That is interesting. Is air conditioning as common there as it is in the US? I know the IPMS tends to pick the ridiculously hottest possible places to hold Nats almost every year, so maybe that fact is a good thing given the presence of crazy good A/C. Or maybe the crowd is different here? I went to a Lego convention in Seattle some years back, and it was much like you describe - too hot in there, smelly, unwashed, greasy looking nerds everywhere (I am a nerd, so I get to say that). Seattle also doesn't have A/C a lot, so maybe there is a connection.

After a few years at QMHE here in Queensland...   and smaller events...  You get to remember and recognize some of the perpetually stinky ones.  My wife had enough at her first show where she was jostled more than once and won't ever go to another.

Nice photos!   That dambuster build is quite adventurous.  Must have been hell to transport it.  Probably worried every bump.

Don't worry, it would have bounced.

 

Some nice looking plastic models in these pics. Looking forward to more.
