The Ships at ScaleModelWorld 2008
Jim Baumann did it again!Jim Baumann's 1/350 Regia Marina Roma won Best Of Show! For two years in a row, Jim took this prize home and the recognition that ship modeling is a great area of modeling! Also, Mike McCabe won Best Diorama with his 1/700 Gnydia Harbor Diorama (amongst other prizes too!). An excellent piece of craftsmanship and ideas put on a small area! Amongst many stands and displays, again this year, The German Gamblers won the Best Foreign Display Award! To both Jim, Mike and the German Gamblers Team, and all winners and participants in the Contest, Branches and SIG tables I would like to, in my name and also on behalf of MSW, give a BIG THANK YOU for all excellency shown throughout this modeling event! Again, this was the chance to speak with the great persons that we have been "talking" all year and meet new artists and great modelers. In no particular order, Jim Baumann, Mike McCabe, Peter Fulgoney, Rob Kernaghan, Roy Allen, Jacques Druel, Guido Hopp, Frank Spar, Frank Ilse, Christian Bruer and Dirk Mennike (The German Gamblers Team), David Griffith, Andy UK, Dave Wooley, our own Jim Smith (Freighter) and Shaun Symonds (muddyfields) amongst many other British Bulldogs and other modelers and vendors, made the trip and all the mishaps of the trip to Telford completely gone! Start planning your entries for SMW 2009, but before that, here is the ship photo report for this year event. I would like to apologize for the poor quality of some photos, but glass/acrylic protective cases and poor lighting of the facilities makes good photography a little difficult... Enjoy!
