Postby snapdragon » Thu Sep 05, 2019 7:38 pm

OK folks

Telford 2019 is 9th and 10th November.

I will be there on the Saturday and depending if ZM want my builds, Sunday too.

Who else will be attending?

Are you going to invest in a ZM kit?

I see you get free entry if you are an IPMS Member, does that allow quicker entry or early access.

"Free priority entry (admission allowed before the general public) on both days of the show"

Only reason I joined ipms, cost of joining is almost the cost of entry for both days, plus early entry and you get 4 magazines per year, no-brainer in my opinion.

05:50 start for me and 3 trains!

I do know that number 1 was really impressed with the Ki-45 kit last year when he had a rummage through.

Already put a pre-order for the Ns 129 so that's £115 spent already.

HK models is unveiling a new kit at Telford that will attract much attention I reckon. There may be also another Lancaster release, but I am not sure yet.

Telford is always a good show to get to if you can as there is so much happening. One thing to note and that is the food is extortionate in price and not all that good, as is the bar and drinks. TAKE YOUR OWN!

There is a free bus from the train station to the show and back.

Not that it happens, but keep your cash in a front pocket rather than the back. Keeps it safer.
