IPMS Scale Modelworld

Now we have broadband again (and fibre, no less!), I can put up the photos from our visit to Scale Modelworld, which we talk about in Episode 7 of The Hub Systems.


The winner of the competition...take a look at the belts through the window and the fire extinguisher...great detail


Oscar with Battlestar Galactica and it's rag-tag fleet (and the shifty guy behind him we mention on the show!!)


Mark VII Viper and Cylon Raider



Some great internal detail on these kits


This was the Shelby Cobra that won 2nd place in one of the Cars category - we think it should have been 1st....


A nice little vignette here, with the Star Wars bike trooper reading Guardians of the Galaxy...quite funny!


Great Cthulhu...


The leather detail on this Roman soldier bust was phenomenal...the Shield Maiden behind it won, but several of the minis were (in our opinion) better.


This German Paratrooper had some fabulous blending


This 1/32nd Tigercat had been scratch built from scale aluminium plate...insane!



This He-162 was fairly standard...until you realise that it was done by a 6 year old!!!


This is the 1/700 scale SM-79...remarkable for the fact that it was less than an inch long!


Oscar loved these egg planes...(actually he hated them, but I thought I'd wind him up!). This one he didn't mind because it was a parody of itself....otherwise, what was the point?


The wood effects on several models was just staggering


This was the F-16 with the captive rivets on the panels



There was some pretty amazing armour there too, here's just a couple of examples.
