East Neuk 2018 Photo’s


Well it may have been cold and wet outside on Saturday but that didn’t matter as I spent the day indoors at the East Neuk Model Show in Cupar, Fife and not only were the Bacon rolls delicious but there was some fantastic builds to be seen.

This was my 2nd visit to this show and just as last years was, it was a great show. I love the intimate feel of this show, it feels to me much more of a social event than just a model show. The host club, East Neuk, had their full Commando Comics display on show; it was this display with which they won this years ASM Trophy for Best Club Display at the Scottish Nationals in April.

There was a good selection of vendors present as well as some fantastic club displays by the other clubs that were present.

I hope you enjoy the video and I will hopefully be back soon with more posts!

Well today sees me venture across the water to the East Neuk Model Show in Cupar Fife. This is a super friendly and great little show with plenty of builds on display and the food n cakes are pretty awesome too!

Well it’s getting closer so I thought I would drop a quick post about the model show the club I am a member puts on each year, The East of Scotland Model Show.

This year we have had to move the venue for the show away from the Marryat Hall at the Caird Hall Complex and will be holding it at the venue we use for our club nights, The Boomerang Community Centre on Kemback Street in Dundee.

There will be the usual great mix model competition, tombola, traders and club displays just in a new venue. I believe the community centre are also running the cafeteria for us in the morning for rolls and refreshments, but there are no shortage of places to grab something to eat or drink just across the car park on Albert Street.

I hope the new venue doesn’t put people off, it’s a great little community centre ran by real salt of the earth people who do a lot for the local area of Stobswell. I myself am going to be stuck at work in Glasgow for most of the day unfortunately but I should make it along before the show ends with any luck.

Away from the show I am going to be posting infrequently over the coming few weeks, I am having some renovations done to my home that will mean the bench and my kits need packed away and moved for a while. I do still have a couple of completion photo sets to take for my Vampire and Seawolf builds, and I should have the Astute done in short order also so hopefully I will be able to get those posted up whilst the bench is out of action!

 

 

Model Fairground


Just a quick post today as I have been meaning to share this since the show. One the the most unique displays at this years Scottish Nationals had to be the model Fairground and Carnival displays. The Fairground only had a couple of rides running when I managed to get a chance to record it but I believe all the large rides all ran.

Anyway, I thought it was great fun and looked awesome so I thought I would share.

East of Scotland Model Show 2017

This weekend saw the annual East of Scotland Model Show put on by IPMS Dundee, which is the club I have recently joined. Unfortunately due to work commitments I was only able to attend for the last hour of the show but still there was plenty to see, a fantastic number of entries to the competition all of which were superb, the club displays from all the attending clubs were all top quality and there were of course plenty of temptations provided by the visiting vendors!

I didn’t grab many photos as arriving straight from work and in somewhat of a rush I only had my phone with me but these are some of my favourite builds from the show, hopefully next year I’ll be able to attend properly and get some builds in the competition myself.
