BigGrin Hi All

Went to Telford today and the first snippet of information is if you have pre-ordered tickets you can walk in at 9am but if your buying on the day its 10am. I went in at 9am and managed to bag me a half price wingnuts kitDrool Drool Drool .

The show itself is in three rooms that have clubs, kit makers stands like Zouki-mura and wingnuts plus model shop stands. There is also the usual airfix build area too for the youngsters. Lots of bargains to be had and lots of jaw dropping kits in every genre. One that caught my eye was the HPH large all resin and etch C47 that has civilian or military versions. There was even a space odyssey finished kit on display with other sci-fi stuff like star wars. Far to much to describe and do here, if you have been to it you will know exactly what I mean and if you havent go you wont regret it. Zoiki-mura also do a raffle with 10 prizes per day you just need to be at the stand when the winning numbers are drawn to win kits and other goodys. What was my bargain of the day a Wingnut wings AEG G.IV late version WW1 bomber sold at half price due to a damaged box.

I also went to Telford yesterday, and as Andy has already said lots of jaw dropping kits. Picked up some brushes and pigments along with some other supplies. I also picked up a 1:48 scale Caudron G.IV Hydravion WW1 floatplane.
Here are a few more pictures of the show.

Another amazing year at Telford. My third in a row and still it keeps me amazed.

I always attend on the Sunday due to work commitments and its very touching that three halls of exhibitions and so many people can still uphold the two minute silence on remembrance day.

I have a few more pics to add:

Thunderbirds x2
USS Arizona x3
Hobbit x1
Star wars dio x1
Other dio`s x2 (submarine dock is my favourite)
Airfix 1:24 Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat x1. Expected to be available May 2019 at around £150. Recent kit review in the link below.

That`s my bit for Telford 2018. Just a years wait for the next one. Drool

This was my first visit to the show, mainly due to the traveling from Devon involved. Put me to shame really when you realise that there are exhibitors, traders and visitors from all over the world there. Got to the show just after 11 and didn't leave until after 5 and I hardly looked at the 3rd hall at all!

I haven't done much in the way of plastic kits for probably 20 years but I was tempted by a few interesting kits ( photo's attached). Like Mark I really liked the 1/48th scale CSM WWI plane range and bought the Armstrong-Whitworth F.K.8. Very detailed. I bought the Meng 1/35 King Tiger early on in the day at a very good price, but my prize buy has to be the RFM Ausf.G 1/35 Panther with cut away turret and hull allowing for visible interior detail. Very excited about this one.

My wife went into Birmingham for the day and she spent more than I did so I managed to have a great day, buy some exciting stuff and still kept the moral high ground. Result.

PS. Sorry but I have failed miserably to add pictures of my kits to this post.
