Southern posse's southern show
Bulldogs that managed to make this Southern show, were Andy (Bigskip), Luciano (Littorio), Sean (pigsty), and Andy (betheyn). Our youngest member who normally accompanies the Southern posse to shows, decided she should act more like a teenager and stay in bed, which did make it that the adults now had to look after the stand instead of shopping lol.
Meeting up for the first time was Sean (pigsty), who brought a couple or three models for the stand, which were more then welcome, as a two of them were wonderful tracked artillery pieces (one of which will be a photo feature in the future). Hopefully Sean will make it to more shows, and is more them welcome at the stand.
One of the highlights of the day was Andy (Bigskip) buying (no surprise there) a Tamiya CVN-65 USS Enterprise aircraft carrier model. Yep the big one, the man is mad beyond doubt (do you see what happens Keith when your not there to guide him) lol.
Luciano, in between shopping for naval aircraft, as usual partitioned off a part of the stand as a building area, where he has started a secret project. I would also like to thank Lucky for picking me up and taking me to this show, thanks mate.
I do believe all of us made several visits to Bob at the MDC stand, so much so, I think he should be either made an honorary member or our sponsor lol.
This is a great show to attend, and is a nice break from the 4 hour plus drives up North us Southerners normally have to endure for shows. A welcome addition to the Bulldogs calender of events.
Thanks to IPMS Farnborough for another cracking show.

About Andy Brazier (betheyn)
FROM: ENGLAND - SOUTH EAST, UNITED KINGDOM

I started modelling in the 70's with my Dad building Airfix aircraft kits. The memory of my Dad and I building and painting a Avro Lancaster on the kitchen table will always be with me. I then found a friend who enjoyed building models, and between us I think we built the entire range of 1/72 Airfi...

Thanks for doing the report so quick Andy. A really good day, good company as always, and a pleasure to spend time with Sean, always nice to meet new friends. Yes, i did sheel out for the 'Big E', but in my defence i did only pay 60 quid for it, it mint condition, except for the box. Gonna spend more on the Etch and the Airwing!!!! Andy

Ah the Big "E" Sam bought me that along with a couple of the Air wing sets for Christmas a couple of years ago. Unfortunately its still sat on top of the wardrobe (along with the USS New Jersey) un-built waiting for space to display it (when we get our own place ) Never crossed my mind of getting etch for it though

Allen Check out WEM etch set, for both ship and airwing!! Lots and lots of etch.

Email received today From Pete Readman - Organiser of IPMS Farnborough Modelfest " Thank you very much for exhibiting at IPMS Farnborough Modelfest 2010, and for making it yet another successful show. Your contribution to the event is much appreciated. I await our Treasurer's analysis of the exact figures, but I can say the contribution to the Hospice will be at least as great as it was in 2009, which is wonderful given the economic climate. If you have any comments or feedback (positive or negative), please don't hesitate to contact me or any of my fellow committee members. We do try to learn, and to adapt the show from year to year, and we will be having a meeting this week on how to make Modelfest 2011 even better still. As soon as I have a date for 2011 I will inform you. Again, many thanks, Best regards, Pete -- Pete Readman Branch Secretary IPMS Farnborough"

A very nice show as usual, and good to put names to faces on the Bulldogs stand. I don't think you should wind up new memebrs quite so much, mind you Next time I must remember to actually stay put on the stand for a few minutes ...

Sean Sorry about the wind ups, i didn't think we'd got started!! As you've said elsewhere, so long as the stand is manned it's fine to disappear. How often did i go walk about?? And then come back with a box? Andy

Andy just call it practice for Telford

Andy B - someone on Britmodeller is interested in the decals on your Bf 110. He's wondering where you got Iraqi markings, as he makes the only ones in existence (!). Can you elucidate?
SEP 28, 2010 - 02:26 AM
Hi Sean. Its the Eduard Bf-110E kit in 1/48th. Review can be found here . Dragon also produce a 1/48th Bf-110 with Iraqi markings (printed by Cartograph) . He should get out more. Andy
