Scale Modelworld 2015 models – #5 (Best in Show & the category winners)

November 9, 2015 · in Show Reports · · 23 · 8.1K

With the judging completed at , the category winners were thankfully placed in a separate display area, allowing for this overview of the best aircraft, best car, best armor etc. award winners from the exibition.

The overall Best in Show title went to the Russian space rocket on its launch ramp, a vertical object which is patently dificult to do justice in photography - let me just tell that the finesse of this (reatively small) model was mind-boggling!

  1. Very nice but how bout the 1/32 aircrafts? Pleeze?

  2. It wouldn't be Telford without controversy with the competition judging!

    I have 350 images to upload, a high number of which are aircraft, including 1/32, but am having some difficulties with the uploads at the moment for some reason, but will persevere.

    By the way, in the Competition, my 'For the Motherland!' diorama (seen here previously albeit in a somewhat different configuration) won Silver in its Class, and my Napoleonic
    figure vignette, 'Veterans', posted here last month, took Bronze. Our club did well generally with medals and trophies, considering that it's an international competition.

    • i was very impressed with that blue farm tractor...i only see it at European shows...any idea who makes it and what scale...that thing looked real

      • Bob, on the club stands there were a few tractors. They were die-cast models (Chinese manufacture, I think). The modellers had treated the original as a starting point - applying rust, or other wear. Very nice result. I think Trumpeter also make plastic kits of these, too, but not sure about the one you mentioned. It probably mentioned details on the entry card but I can't remember (I must have seen a thousand models over the weekend.).

    • Rob, congratulations! Well deserved!

  3. In which category was image 11...?

  4. .

    Just a word on the Bréguet Intégral, airplane at the top of this series of pictures :

    The four propellers were linked to each other by à shaft running trough the wing. This was to be sure to obtain at any time a accurate coordination of the rotation of the propellers in order to have the wing blown equally along the wingspan. I coud'nt resist to make this remark since I had been working on this airplane as a mechanical designer in the 60's.

    (The propellers should be rotated to their right position on the model ...)à_Dugny.JPG/800px-Breguet_941_à_Dugny.JPG


  5. Congratulations to all who won prizes

  6. Whatinell is #5? Giant leafblower?

  7. Thanks for taking us all along by providing us with the many photos. Looks like it was fun.

    • Thanks, Terry; yes it was a lot of fun. As a personal note, visiting Telford is something like sightseing in Venice - there are so many impressions that you just end up being dead tired in the evenings!

  8. That totally scratchbuilt Breguet is amazing.

  9. I have added a few more pics of the Breguet from the previous photo set...
