so just how big is this show?, im wondering if its comparable in size to the IPMS one i used to go to in Newark

and is the comp the usual IPMS type?.....lots of planes and armour, very little else?

at the mo im not sure if i can make it, or if i can if i can stay all day, will know closer to the time. id like to stay and enter a few things in the comp but they usually do the judging/awards quite late in the day

It'll be about an hour's journey from my home,
but I'm still suffering from health problems that limit my travelling time.
Sadly I might have to miss it.

At the IMPS show in Port Townsend, Washington , last year the model cars out numbered the Military and figures. I wish I would have been there to see that look on the judges faces. I haerd it was priceless.

Myself, Al and Nigel ambushed an IPMS show here in Dublin with loads of cars a couple of years back, they couldn't believe it, had to find an extra table just for us and the poor guy who brought the only other two cars to the show.

Do you have to pre-enter or can you turn up on the day with your models?
How does it work?
