Hello all. Here's my write up for Sunday's show.

I'll start off at my stall:

One of the dioramas by the West of Scotland Model Society:

Now wonder we won Waterloo with those in reserve!

Something for the Whovians:

Ogre on display. First time I've ever seen it in the flesh, so to speak:

This Millenium Falcon and the Models in the preceeding two photos were on the stand of the South Lakes Sci-fi & Fantasy Model Club:

I liked this quirky model. It's Wallace & Gromit in Nosferstu. Displayed by the Beyond the Box SIG:

Louisiana Tigers' officer et al. I didn't catch the name of the group displaying them:

Another trader now: Worley Booksellers – a familiar sight to anyone who's been to Border Reiver:

Models from the organisers' stand now:

Nice to see some of the HäT figures here. I wonder if that's an Armourfast Cromwell too?

Before and after! The Jagdpanzer IV is a favourite AFV of mine.

Subs!

I like how the modeller of this diorama has shown the different soil strata here. Geology played quite a role on the Western Front.

Tom Nixon was a new trader at this year's show:

There is a diverse range of Special Interest Groups. Ones that I have seen over the years include Spitfires, the USAAF in England, WWI, Luftwaffe 1946 and even South African aviation.

Here's something for the 1:72 fans to drool over. Birmingham's Mr. Models extensive stall:

And now to the competition area. Unfortunately I didn't get a lot of time to look around here so this is all that I've got.

Firstly, a huge 1:32/1:35 airfield diorama. The organiser told me that this is just one of three panels!

28mm time:

This is just a sample of what there was to see at the show. This is a bigger model show than Darlington's Sword & Lance and the hall is also larger than that which hosts Border Reiver. Plenty for the modeller, collector and wargamer to admire.

It was held at the Parks Centre in North Shields. Here's the TMP link to my earlier post.
