Well it’s come around quick, but this weekend see’s the Scottish National Scale Model Show return to The Dewars Centre in Perth.

This years show looks like being the biggest to date with 45 Traders and around 60 exhibitors across the two halls. It should be a fantastic weekend with plenty to see and buy.

Unfortunately I have nothing new to display this year as it’s now 12 months since a completion, something I intend to rectify as soon as possible but I will have a couple of my builds from last year on the IPMS Dundee tables and I am sure the show will provide its usual dose of inspiration and push me to get some more building done over the coming weeks.

If you have the chance to come along then please do, these shows simply wouldn’t happen without the support of the hobbyists, every one loves a bargain and with this many quality traders you are sure to find something to add to your stash. Also if you are not a member of your local model club shows like this also provide the perfect opportunity to see what clubs are all about, have a chat with some of the members and see if you think joining your local club might be for you.

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.

Well what a weekend! This years Scottish National Scale Model Show took place this weekend and what a show it was. This years show was held at its usual venue of the Dewars Centre in Perth and it was the largest model show in Scotland to date.

With approximately 67 exhibitors/demonstrators and 36 traders this puts the show up there amongst some of the biggest in the UK and is a fantastic achievement by the members of the committee who have grown the show into the event it is today.

There was some fantastic displays by clubs and exhibitors alike, the quality of the entrants into the competition this year was really high.

Above is a slideshow of some of my favourite models on display but there were so many fantastic builds on display the slide show last for hours had I included them all!

I will be posting more about the show soon, but I hope you enjoy the images in the mean time.
