Brampton Show 2017
« on: August 20, 2017, 02:24:56 am »
Am I right in thinking the UK SIG has a 'presence' at Brampton this year?

It's usually out of my range but if I stay with my friends in Finedon it's 'just down the road', 19 miles to be exact.  ;D

I certainly hope we do because I've booked the day off work!

Don't forget the show is actually in St Ives...

Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Me, Nick, Mike and Richard on the stand.

Deathjester also contributed a few models which attracted a LOT of attention! Especially the FAA one. Comprised of too many different models to mention, but had a big dose of Beaufighter within.

One highlight was seeing some prototype castings for a 1/72 Vickers Warwick from Alleycat! :) :)

Lots of questions asked about the models and how they were derived.

Not such how much of the display was photographed.

Considering updates you have posted elseware on here Kit, id say you had a very good reason for not being able to get there.

My regards to Mary mate.

I think Richard took lots of pics of the stand. Mike's pair of Vickers Warrington? got a lot of attention and double takes. Good show, glad to see you all there.
