A very good report. Thanks Darren. Thanks for posting Jim.
I really liked the B-17 being hauled off diorama. Great stuff.

Great report, and even greater model show. It is definately worth the trip to see this show, and Darren and had a great time.

Thanks for sharing the show. Would have been great to be there. Is there a Dalek kit or are they scratch built? I have a couple of kids begging for anything of Whovian origin. I was impressed with everything.

This was the best event I have attended related to modelling and I will try to make attendance a regular event from now on. I can only think of one possible downside to this event and that is how tired I was after walking around it on both days, still the exercise did me good. I should also add it was great to meet Kevin and his wife face to face as well as some of the other KitMaker Staff and members of the site.

Russ there are dalek model kits available in both plastic and resin. The ones at the show were from very small to full size and included some that were on the move.

its a great show and has become a high light of the modelling calendar, it really has to be seen to be believed, that they can cram so much into the halls.

even having spent the best part of three days there, im still seeing thing i missed in pictures

it was nice to finally catch up and meet with you Darren and Kevin, and you need to become Bulldogs so you have some where to rest during the weekend
