Hendon Scale Model Show
Each year in May, IPMS Barnet and Harrow (North London) host a model show in the exhibition halls at RAF Hendon museum. This year, there were around 25 different clubs/SIGs participating, together with a trade area where sales appeared to be brisk.
Club displays are set in and around the actual aircraft displays, so there’s a feeling of historical presence throughout the event. A competition also takes place; our club was awarded a first place, two runner-up placements, and two ‘honourable mentions’.
I’ve taken a few random photos to give you an idea of the day. There is in fact another exhibition hall, where Airfix had a large company display. In that hall, among the wide range of aircraft on show, were a Mustang and Me262, while suspended from the ceiling are a Sopwith Camel, a Fokker DVII and a Harrier.
An interesting day.
