First look at Scale Model World.

It’s that time again where thousands of models & thousands of people all gather for the UK IPMS Scale Model World show, held once a year at the International Centre in Telford.

I was only there for a little while tonight but I could see in the time I was there, that some great stuff was on show and I can’t wait to go back for a proper look! Lots of new kits on display from manufacturers including Airfix, Mach2, Revell, Zoukei Mura and many, many more. LSP/32ndSIG club stand also had a great tribute to the long standing IPMS member and Spitfire expert, Edgar Brooks.

Some of the highlights I saw while walking round included a full resin 1/144th scale 747SP, the new Revell 1/32nd Me-262, Zoukei Mura’s new 1/48th & 1/32nd releases, the USAF & LSP/32ndSIG’s monster displays, Tom Probert’s scratch built 1/32nd scale Shackleton, HpH’s MONSTER 1/48th B-36(!) and the new Airfix 1/48th Meteor & 1/72nd B-17.

It’s going to be a packed weekend to cram in 3 large halls, so much to see and so much to photograph. For anyone who reads this and isn’t going I hope you enjoy the photos! More will be posted over the weekend, and then a final batch midweek.


One thought on “First look at Scale Model World.

  1. Very cool photos, thanks for posting.

    The 1/32 Hs129 & Ki-45 look superb, two must haves for me. About time a Japanese twin fighter was modelled in 1/32, and the Hs-129 looks far superior to GMF’s resin effort, which I found to be a pretty awful kit. Resin, I know, but still awful.
