  1. I am now able to confirm that we will have in attendance on the day, a Mr Mark Thompson from Plastech in Newhaven. For those of you who are not aware he is from the factory in Newhaven that produce the Airfix kits in the UK, he will be bringing along a small display of the items being produced in the UK. So you may well be able to have a lot of your questions and queries answered.
  2. For those of you who will be attending our Annual show and entering the competition, below is a list of the competition classes. Class 1 Aircraft 1/72nd and smaller Class 2 Aircraft 1/48th and larger Class 3 Military vehicles 1/72nd and smaller Class 4 Military vehicles 1/48th and larger Class 5 Diorama 1/72nd and smaller Class 6 Diorama 1/48th and larger Class 7 Sci-Fi, TV, Film all scales Class 8 Figures, Busts all scales Class 9 Civilian all scales Class 10 Maritime/ships all scales Class 11 Junior modellers all scales If felt necessary there may be additions or small ammendments to the above There will also be a best of show, and again this year there will be a award for the best visiting club display (to be judged by general public ballot), so come on clubs lets see what you can do.
  3. Not long to go now.
  4. Se Sean is quite correct, exactly as he says, the large one is also free all day. We also have this year use of the front foyer area for the competition and exhibitors, and if all goes to plan there will be a special display exhibitor, more info when we have confirmed. Please note that there are roadworks being carried out in the vicinity,so you will need to follow local diversion signs in High street, it just means entering the venue from the other end of the High Street Look forward to seeing fellow Britmodellers there, come and make yourself known, just look for the Blue shirts. Despite our extra best efforts, we cannot get any form of hot food on premises, so apologies in advance no Bacon butties. Derek

  6. Thanks gents
  7. Does anyone know what the quality is like on the Revell 1/48 Superfortress, or should I get the original Monogram issue
  8. Looking for information on these series of fact files, how many volumes are there in the set, and how many individual files are there for the set. They are the small size A5 , with a Tomcat on the binders.
  9. Used it once after a recommendation, not by a hobby shop by the way but a modeller, it finished up in the bin. I recommend Revell Plasto as it sets hard,can be wet sanded and if used sparingly you do not lose surface detail.
  10. Being one of the organisers of the Hailsham District Model show.this question has been asked on more than one occassion about clubs selling under table kits. Our answer is quite simple, if you are selling just a few kits,there is no problem,but if you are unloading a major quantity then you would be expected to buy a table as per the traders.
  11. Just to say a big thankyou to all the guys at North Surrey for a very good show, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was good to see and catch up with friends again. Thanks Derek
