East of England Show

Every year in early March the East of England Show takes place in Peterborough.

Organised in conjunction with Airfix Model World, it’s the first of the ‘show season’ events in our region and it always attracts a wide variety of modelling interest, with around 25 clubs and SIGs in attendance.

Here are a few walkaround photos of the day.

  1. Thanks for posting these, Rob, there’s a good variety on show there, I especially liked the Belkits Ford Fiesta with the Welsh Rally markings.

    • There were a lot of nice cars on view. As there is sometimes criticism here about show reports that concentrate almost solely on aircraft I decided to focus a little more on other subjects.

      As you’d expect though, there were plenty of aircraft about, of the usual ilk – Spitfires, Messerschmitts, et.al., still, all nicely modelled and worth a look.

      By the way, the Welsh rally car is by a member of our own club, and is his pride and joy (We were surprised he took it out of the house!).

  2. Thanks Rob, can’t get to all these shows (although plan to make Southern Expo) so its great to be able see a selection of the work on display – I particularly liked to see the royal horse artillery diorama – thanks again.
