Wondering if anyone is going to this years show or if anyone has attended in privious years, if so can anyone give me a little insite on what to expect. Im only just starting out and was wondering if this would be a good place to get a few kits and tools ect. Might be nice for a few people to meet up aswel.
Hope to see some of you there. DAVE

Hi Dave,

You will find plenty to buy they have lots of traders for kits paints tools and even bases, also many club stands have 2nd hand kits to sell
from under their tables too.

The competition was always well supported.

This is a new venue this year.

Barry, (Grievous), and I used to attend with the Bolton IPMS but they put too many clubs in the hall and that side of things was always too cramped with insufficient seating for the attendees.

We no longer attend, but for reasons of overcrowding.

Paul.

Thanks for the info, seems to be a good place for me to start. Although it sounds a little like the Harrogate model engineering show, seems that a lot of the show orginisers want to cram as many stalls and stands with little of no regard to visiters comforts, Its a shame really.
