News for October 2019.


Hello everyone here is my news for October. I missed September completely most was a holiday and a wonderful holiday more further down the page.



Firstly some really sad news we lost a wonderful man I got to know at IPMS South East Essex Model Club. Philip Camp was one of the main committee at our local model club a gentleman and modeller. He was always smiling, may he rest in peace and my condolances to his family and friends.


This picture is the model club stand at the Shoeburyness Railway Show some years ago and this is how you found him on the stand at many shows.




Sol and I, as I say, had a wonderful holiday in Greece. We had 3 days in Athens and then took the ferry to Santorini and had 8 days of glorious sunshine and the welcome of a bueatiful island. The sunsets didnt quite happen.

We came back to Athens for one day and took a mini cruise around 3 islands Ageana, Hidra and Poros. There wasn't sufficient time for taking in more of the islands but a walk in the port areas was great.






Our mini Cruise


Museum I found in Athens.



I have still not done any work at the modelling bench at all. I am not sure now when I will get back into it.


However my work in progress page shows what I have on the go. The link to my page is here.



My finished work is shown on my gallery page......



The shows keep coming and there have been some great shows this year so far. They all seem very busy as well. Does this indicate a good healthy hobby?


I have been updating my show and events pages and many 2019 show dates  have been announced now and added.

Some 2020 dates for your diary are also comming in!!!! I also have a 2121 date as well.


The main event is coming up soon also the UK IPMS nationals held at Telford. I am sure this is not to be missed and we all have our shopping lists ready.




There are links to pages where the listing of  the shows and events that I know and can verify.

Please keep looking often, as I add them as and when I can verify the dates.

I keep spending alot of time catching up on Facebook with the many friends and groups I have joined, much to my dear wife's annoyance. There is always wonderful work displayed on the many pages and cannot believe how many great modellers there are out there.

Please remember if you are visiting a favourite show please make sure you check information before travelling.

Please contact me through the contact page I will always welcome photos or event news to add to my website.

Please keep looking in from time to time and I wish you many happy hours making that favourite scale model.


Thank you.

Pete and Sol.
