scale model show @ telford

a busy weekend was had at the ipms scale model show at telford.
having never been to a model show it came as a surprise as to how big it was and how busy it also was,
we arrived on sat morning about 6am to set up, i was helping a friend out on his stall heritage aviation models
after the initial set up the doors open to the ipms members, followed by the rest of the public at 10am. after hoping for a quick look around before we got busy that never happened as we got busy and stayed busy for the rest of the day,.
i have never known a show were money is no object. at times customers were 5 deep in the que at our stall. it was work all day long, at times amusing when the darleks came past collecting money for help for heroes the two people inside them were full of comic lines as the collected the money, even having a water gun in the ray gun and wetting anyone who got in the way...
it ended at 6 pm on sat night leaving time to get some food and a drink before collapsing into a long sleep for the night.
Sunday started out a bit quieter giving us some time to see the show. on display were some good models. even some time to pick up a few bits.
it was good to see cromwell models at the show, got some nice bits from him ,and he told me they should have a new web site up soon. but they have been busy selling and designing and little chance to reply to all who try to get in touch with them.
apart from some figures from AB FIGURES i forgot to get some bits from a company called fieldwork's, who produce some very nice buildings
it ended at 4pm Sunday not quite as busy as the Saturday but still tiring none the less after another nights rest we then went to RAF cosford museum as this week is the open week for the restoration hanger took lots of pictures here and in the other hangers were the TSR 2 is kept. ill post again when i have picked the best pictures.
