Team IPMS Avon looking forward to this one as usual. Hope the weather picks up. For such a big popular show, seems a bit quiet on here?

I'm wondering... it's a very big, well-established, popular show, so perhaps folks feel less inclined to post anything about it. Just a personal theory, however.

Really nice show - relaxed atmosphere and looked like everyone was having a good time. Well done to the organisers and everyone who put so much effort into the stands.

Yes as usual a really enjoyable show, though I did not find any "bargains", but bumped into Chris (Stringbag) as usual, nice to see you again.

 

Cheers

Had a good time at the show, lots of things to buy that i can' afford, wish the Cold War Exhibits were easier to photograph. Many thanks to the organisers and all those who put a lot of effort into the show and also all the club stands.

First time for me and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Lots to see and I did spend some money on "largish" kits (Monogram B-36 anyone?)

I enjoyed the show, but it seemed significantly less busy than in previous years. Also, there seemed to be a lot less genuine bargains under the tables (but that's a trend which dates back a couple of years and is not confined to Cosford, to be honest).

 

What say ye, my merry gentlemen?

I thought the prices from the traders were quite reasonable. Being a "southern softie" it was nice to come across some different traders to the ones we see at the more southern shows.

I thought it was quieter than usual and heard a disquieting rumour about its continuing

Which would be a shame if its to be

 

Lots to see again of course

 

I found, unusual for me - not, a Revell HC3 Merlin which has a future as a build

What rumour is that? As a member of the organising club I've not heard anything about it discontinuing.

Excellent show, we had a great response to models on display from the public.

I did think the numbers looked to be down but that could be just people arriving earlier and the size of the site.

Found a few bargains, but sold everything I had bar one lot!

Caught up with a large number of forum members and cheers for the Cider Nick😎

 

Only niggle was the price of drinks in hanger one but that's down to the museum.

 

Cheers, Neil

Good show, the Manchester Angels always like this so roll on next years. Got a few bargains, Sword Tojo and Tamiya A6M2 but good company and good exhibits lift this show above others,

Well done to the organisers
