IPMS(UK) Scale Model World 2017 - 11/12 November
« on: October 12, 2017, 05:09:25 am »
The IPMS(UK) host its annual show Scale Model World again on the 10th & 11th of November at the Telford International Centre, Telford, Shropshire, UK.

http://ipmsuk.org/ipms-scale-modelworld/

The What IF SIG and Project Cancelled SIG will again both be displaying at the show, although we are still awaiting confirmation of which Hall and the location within that Hall.

Again there are strict rules on access due to the public liability insurance which limits access during the setup period, so if turning up as a member of the SIG during the set-up period without a valid wristband you will be unable to access the hall until it opens to the IPMS members at 9:00 am or general public at 10:00am. Please arrange in advance with one of the SIG set up crew to arrange a meet up in the car park to collect models for the stands if necessary. (Even with strict access controls outside the show open hours, there are hundreds of people in the halls, setting up, club, sig or traders stands, plus IPMS marshal's and centre staff doing the final touches along with a restricted number cars, vans or even light trucks for traders).

So a chance for the regulars to meet up and reacquaint themselves and for new people and forum members to introduce themselves, lots to see, lots to talk about and unfortunately lots to buy !!, so bring money, a welcome smile and comfy shoes as it can involve a lot of walking to get around the hall and see everything. Weather can also vary, we have had it bitterly cold and frozen, blowing a blizzard or a storm, still wet and grey, thick fog or even warm and sunny, so be prepared as being Britain all of those can actually effect us over the same day let alone weekend !!!

Cheers Geoff, saves me a job posting that little lot up.  :thumbsup:

The what if sig? set up crew this year is as follows
Me (Martin Higgs)
Chris Edwards
Nick Pedley
Mike McEvoy.

The two model per sig member guideline will be in play. Althou there is nothing to stop any one swapping there models dureing the show to get more models in public view. If numbers are down or there is enought room on the tables, I may be able to relax the guideline.

The breaking news for the sig is that I am hoping to have a new display stand in time for the show.
 
IPMS Coventy & Warwickshire are replacing their current display stand rig with a new and for their needs better stand. I have offered to buy their old stand. It isnt cheap, and it will get a decent refurb before they hand it over. Once it is in my possion, it will remain my personal property but there for the SIG to use. This is all dependant on wether Cov & warks get their new stand in time for the Nationals, as they are running a little behind shedule with the construction of their new rig.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Have they got a monster tank to get in through there again this year? If so I'm glad I WON'T be there on Friday!
