huddesfield model show

another day out on the first show attended this year, due to early snow fall it looked like being a poor show but the mad die hards turned up and wgen the snow started to melt more followed.
the international plastic model show in Huddersfield, a first for me at this show again helping out a friend at heritage aviation models. so most of the day was spent selling but i did have time for a look around and a browse on the other stalls.
to my surprise i found nothing to buy, i was looking for 1/100 scale Huey's, C-47 gunships again in 1/100 but it seems to be a scale untouched by the plastic modelers...
i also tried to find some detailing sets for my 1/35 tiger kit but again found nothing, plenty for the rest of the tiger family but nothing for what is probably the most manufactured kit on the market in every scale possible.
so all i came away with is this book given to me for helping out, more of a catalogue about a 1938 exhibition staged during the Spanish civil war by the nationalists showing the captured equipment from the republic side
the interesting part is it is in English and not Spanish like most of my books on Spain. i was also given a esci wespe kit, no instructions but complete and unmade.
on the painting side the most that got done this week is matt varnishing about 100 figures and building 42 valiant Germans.
but i did manage to get to see legion and what a good film that is, much better than the road or the book of Eli i wont give any spoilers out only recommend that you don't miss it.
picked up on dvd this week was Leningrad so far i have only seen some of it and it looks like enemy at the gates type of film. i did spot a stug 3 ausfD in it but on the side view of it it was just a BMP made to look like one, still a good effort so far, and there is a knocked out 38t in some early scenes
