Downham Market Show

June 21, 2015 · in Show Reports · 11 · 2.3K

Every year, West Norfolk IPMS (UK) hosts a show at Downham Market. It's a large-ish regional show and attracts about fifteen clubs and a dozen or so traders.

Our club did well this year, with firsts in the Armour, Figure, and Aircraft categories, and a Best in Show as well.

I include here a few random images from the club tables.

Of interest, too, was a purchase I made of a pencil with a wax core. A Japanese product, you sharpen it and use it to touch-lift photoetch parts. I suspect there's something similar in art shops, but it looks handy. Also, the uploads here are the first I've tried with my iPad since downloading the Camera+ app, and it seems to work, with no upside-down images!
