    I never tend to haggle with traders, as knowing some of the prices they get charged is scary. I actually dont think there is many bargains there but what there is , is CHOICE chances are if looking for a kit or a modification to a kit etc it will be there! Had a great show (with ipms Glasgow) very tired by Sunday , Only down side for us was Sunday morning, the rear carpark for traders and exhibitors was full????? Cant understand this as you need passes to get in (2 per club) so no way should it be full especially at 08.45 on a Sunday, Sent around to the front and charged £4.50 , wasnt even the money it was the hastle of break down at the end of the day. And to add insult to injury some security guard refused exit to any person with a trolley!!!! Thankfully one of the yellow shirts sorted it out.

    My 1st time at Telford that was the advice I was given, by club members, kits can just disappear and especially if its not a newer kit.
  3. Thanks for the compliments, tables was delivered Friday afternoon and some of the guys actually went in on Friday night to start set up, and break the back of it. As a result wee had it all done for 8:30am (a minor miracle for us) Lets traders and clubs just have that little more time to get organized on there own tables, and dare in say it look for early morning bargins of traders lol. Was a good show, foot traffic was up ,and what was also good to see was a lot more children and female punters. It was a long day but worth it, home for a few drinks and a early night ,rock n roll eh lol
  4. A BIG thank you to all who attended, either as a club or as a paying punter. On the whole it went of without any major dramas , competition went well and no one complained (publicly)so thats always a bonus. Judges had a near impossible time as the standard (as always) was so high, hopefully we called it right. One thing we did get positive feedback was about splitting the junior category. Hope everyone had a great time look forward to seeing you back next year.
  5. Think its a double edged sword duncan, Glasgow has always kinda resisted them as the shows are nothing with out the traders, and Bruce ans Geoff always try to keep the mix right so any trader travelling hopefully will have a good profitable day(and come back) . That said unfortunately we have had a few members die and leave large stashes! The kits that normally end up in swaps aren't what most traders have as stock. So hopefully we dont step on each others toes.
  6. There is a kit swap, i belive its £1 entry for 10 kits (might more kits) plus 10% of all sales go to the club organisation. Its a great way of getting rid kits you will never build AND picking up ones that you dont see in the shops/with traders .
  7. Open to anyone, small fee applies (think its £1 for 10 entries) Strickly no amending/additional entries once sheet is in, new sheet required,
  8. Gordon what i would say to you is the standard is so high , its a nightmare for the judges i know i get "volunteered " in to doing it sometimes. All judges try to be fair, unfortunately when you enter there is winners and unfortunately some loosers. On the whole we dont have many complaints. And what i will say if you feel a mistake has been made approach the judges most will explain there reasoning. As for traders they really need to get booked in early for glasgow, as with it being a one day show and being only 2nd in size (Scottish nationals Perth is by far biggest in Scotland) Bruce tries to keep the ratio of clubs and traders right so there is customers for the traders who might have travelled far, got to make it right for both clubs and traders. Hard line to walk.
  9. There is... https://www.facebook.com/ipmsglasgow/ https://www.ipmsglasgow.com/ You can also download the entry form for competition so you can be more organized on the day (and us hopefully lol)
  10. List of most of the traders... friendship models ,affinity models, pb models, montrose , kit crazy, coastal craft tiger models, wildcat models, milicast, ams, abc brushes, Road transport images, black mike, modelling tools, aviation book centre, halifax models, mitchies models scotts models.
  11. Trying to get a list , will post once i have it.
  12. The biggest 1 day show in Scotland with nearly 260 tables. We have extensive free on site parking, excellent disabled access and the leisure centre cafeteria has an excellent reputation. Bellahoustoun Leisure Centre, Bellahouston Drive Glasgow, G52 1HH United Kingdom Although the venue is close to Ibrox, Rangers are playing away that day…
  13. Thats brilliant mate, answers a lot of questions, esp bottom 2. Many thanks for your hard work
  14. Not sure what i prefer, must be a horrible one to drive all that weight sitting so high up! Altho i was putting a 2cv on the back so might work out better.
  15. Unfortunately I am in the same boat, Cant find any other pictures looks like this was a custom build. Lot of questions needed answered, where is the fuel tank, whats on the bed , think its going to be a bit of modelers discretion!
