  1. It is with great regret that we have decided to bow to the inevitable and cancel this years Romsey Scale Model Show. We have considered postponing it to later in the year but feel that the continued uncertainty about the viability of social gathering does not make this option feasible. We have already obtained a provisional booking of our venue for Sunday July 11th 2021, which we will confirm in January. Thank you for your continued support, I hope that you stay well and look forward to welcoming you to our 2021 show.

  3. It’s limited to the Engineering Workshop. I guess about 20 clubs, but few traders, mostly selling secondhand kits. Squires were there. The hall was very cold in the afternoon.
  4. Great to meet you yesterday Mike, you brought a terrific collection of aviation with you to help inform and inspire others. Your Berg was superb. Well done on your competition win too. Paul.
  5. As a footnote to our 2019 event, with the funds raised from the show, we were recently able to donate £700 to Models For Heroes, and a further £700 to Simon Says. Thank you to everyone that visited and was involved in the event, which helped us exceed our expectations by some margin. We hope to match that, if not better it this year. We look forward to your support this forthcoming July.

  7. Congratulations to the Avon club, a great show for the IPMS Romsey team. Personally, I met some old friends, made a few new ones, did some promotion for our own 2020 show and spent a sensible amount of money on much needed supplies. Too much to see, but I did get around to view most of the tables and the competition area. Well done chaps, superb event.
  8. Really glad you enjoyed the show Wez, for our first event at this new venue, we believe it went very well. We knew having Sqiures trading would help footfall - and the Airfix team unveiling the new 1/72 Buccaneer at our event is something we’re very proud of. See you next year.
  9. Floor plan is now available via the club website....
  10. The show opens at 10:00am, closing at 16:00pm. Free parking throughout the day, hot food available until around 15:00. We have some epic prizes in the Tombola including 3 Wingnut kits and the new Airfix Hellcat amongst many others. We look forward to seeing you there.

  12. So, this is you winging it again with no plan.....Outstanding work!
  13. Outstanding weathering....incredible to think that you build with little plan ahead as your work always looks so well thought out..!
  14. It's great to see the Pedrosa version done, I'm seriously considering doing this one myself. I do love the bike and livery, just can't bring myself to do the #93 bike! Great job on the paint and details. Well done. Inspirational.
  15. Wow, he's a real parts bin special! Fantastic and inspirational work as always Andy.
  16. I'm fortunate enough to get to see Tony's models regularly and to photograph them. These two are among my favourites he's done in this scale, my favourite is certainly the MR2, but both models are equally impressive.
  17. Excellent work - the likeness of the Bishop figure is very good.
  18. World class Sci-Fi modelling once again Andy...stunning job.
  19. Superb work again Andy, the base is very effective in showing off the model and wonderfully created.
  20. I love your build threads....inspiration and an education....great explanations and photography. Another marvelous Star wars model...
  21. I've tracked a number of Aliens kit on fleabay over the years.....silly money. I also saw some for sale at Telford last year......some were approaching £200.. Ideally, Bandai will get the licence for a whole series of Alien kits.......there's a thought.
