IPMS Nationals South Africa 2016
October 3, 2016 in Show Reports
Hey Guy’s, what a great week end, went to the Nationals with a mate of mine who loves to build armor, we traveled about 350Km to get to the venue at Bloemfontein, driving as carefully as we could as the back of my car was full of models, packed at various attitudes so that we could get them all in. We left my house at 04h00 am.
We arrived at about 8h00 in the morning and had an hour to get the entry’s entered.
We spent the whole day at the show and then decided to get accommodation for the night, after a BBQ ( we call it a braai over here) in the evening.
Prize giving was on Sunday and then the drive home. It was a great event with about 400 models entered in various classes.
I was very pleased with the results I achieved, I managed a 1st and 2nd for 1/32 Propeller, a 2nd place in 1/32 Jets, a 1st for helicopters and I got the best on show. I am very happy indeed.
Hope you enjoy the pictures, it will give you an idea of how we build on the southern tip of Africa.
