I thought I'd drop on today to give a brief review of the Telford show.
Firstly I spent the first hour or so queuing to Zoukei Mura to pick up the new Horton 229 but I'll review that in a different post tomorrow.
After this I had a good look round and noticed a couple of interesting things, for a start Zoukei Mura are bringing us a FW 190. It will be in two versions, a simple version and a full version.
Airfix promised something but only showed up with a 1/72 HE111 and a 1/72 Sea King
After hearing rumours of a new 1/24 it was a bit of a let down.
Revell had a Iowa class on show with photo etch attached which I thought looked nice, but then I'm not a boat guy
While I'm on the subject of boats I noticed a stand for Scalewarship which had photoetch rigging
Which again looked good to me
I noticed hidden away on a magazine stand an advert for a new Meng Kit, a 6X6 Cougar.
I also payed a visit to Tarangus and picked up the new Viggen, but I'll review that tomorrow, let me say here though it looks good in the box,
Other than that it was a lot of walking about, talking to a lot of people and making some contacts, I even scored a baseball cap from Alclad (the salesman recognized me which says a lot).
Below are some shots of some of the contest tables. Please excuse the poor quality as I only had my phone with me.
All in all I had a good day, but must have walked miles.
Any questions I'm happy to give any info I have and look out for my box reviews of the Zoukei Mura Ho229 and the Tarangus 1/48 Viggen tomorrow
