Yeah I see what you mean, all those models and which ones to shoot.

Keep taking pictures and continueing to try differant settings on you camera. Then as you view the photos you can hopfully remember (I wrote it down because I forget stuff) which settings gave you what shot. Then just use that information next time when in simiular cercomstances and presto Robert is your mothers brother.

As you have seen sometimes the flash will wash out the colors on subjects close to the camara, but thath may be needed if it is too dark in the room. Any thanks for the photos you gave us. Looks like a great show, glad to have you stuff to enjoy it by.

Apologies up front for the quality of these pics. Frankly I seem to suck at this. Hope you get a flavour of what was at the show.

Euro Scale Modelling was last Saturday October 31, at Nieuwegein, The Netherlands.

A great show and many modellers (also from other countries) had big smiles on their faces! Big Smile

An extensive report (including 2 YouTube videos) can be seen on the IPMS NL website:

It gives an idea of this splendid ESM event.

Best regards, Meindert

The two main NBC exhibition halls - the "Grand Hall" and the "Event Hall" are fully packed but also extra space will be used. IPMS clubs and their Regional Chapters, Special Interest Groups and other modelling clubs (many from abroad) will participate. Traders and private sellers will sell new, stock and rare plastic model kits, products and accessories.


Some key-numbers about the event:
more than 1,000 yards of pure scale modelling displays and 150 exhibitors and traders from ten different European countries.


• Approximately 2,500 up to 3,000 modellers, visitors, buyers are expected from all of Europe, both IPMS members and others.

• Hundreds of models will compete in our Scale Modelling Contest (see below) , which will be open to all. Starting this year (2015) junior participants (up to 16 years old) enter the contest for FREE.
