Staffordshire Moorlands 5th Annual Modelshow 2014
This was the first time I have attended this modelshow and a very enjoyable day was had by all who attended,there were a lot of familliar faces from clubs around the Northwest and also lots from clubs around the Midlands area whom I had not met before,there was quite a good selection of traders and the organisers are confident that this show will gain in popularity and I have no doubt that is true.
There were a lot of figures and busts in evidence including quite a few Iron men or should that be Iron mans ? and this seems to be a growing genre in the hobby.
The standard in the competition was high and I am happy to report that one of our iModelers ,namely your friend and mine Mark Housley esq won not one but two prizes,I included a picture of me and mark (he's the good looking one ) there were many categories in the comp including dioramas ,it was in this category that produced the little scene with the wild west characters being photographed which was one of my favourites of the day.
I hope you enjoy the pictures ,and i can recommend this show to you all .Thanks also to my friends at the 580 modellers for a great day but especially to Geoff Cooper-Smith and Dave Foxall for making it all possible.
P.S. take a close look at the WW1 tank in the first picture,the bridge and lifting gear is all scratch built !
