This show is the replacment event for Euromilitaire traditionaly held at the Lees Cliff hall in Folkestone for many years.

The revamped show will feature the best of British and European modellers displayng and competing in an extremely sociable atmosphere, aling with a decent number of traders.

The competitions whether aircraft ship car tank spacecraft or fantasy and historical figures are to be conducted in the 'Open' European style of judging and the personally arranged displays avoid the 1st,2nd,3rd place judging approach to awards. Gold silver etc awarded by standard.

As representatives of the IPMS,
The British Bulldogs have been invited to display over two days with a general table display and we have been allocated 12'of space.

I have accepted the invitation after consulting with Mal and Keith.

So, if you are within travelling distance, amd want to take part, please earmark something special to put on show, it doesn't matter about how freshly made or old it us, lets put our best on show.

Lucky, Bletheyn, 404 not found and myself usually attend, Holdfast and Doc Dios will both be there.
Please come along if you can, here's a link to the event holders site.

and I shall repeat the post on our FB page too.

Yours Aye

Paul.

This really does sound like a show that must be attended, so I am really looking forward to it. The wife Jackie is also coming along but won't be at the show but you will have to put up with her if you allow us to join you for the evening meal!

Good point Jason,
It could be a good time to wind up the rivalry
for the Tigger Challenge.
I do know that many have seen Folkestone as a personal challenge btw.

Two years ago a couple of guys travelled to the show, met up and started drinking Friday lunchtime.
After setting up their trade stands they didn't sleep till Monday night apart from their red eyes, you wouldn't know it had been a boozefest.
