Salisbury IPMS successfully held their annual Model Show at Laverstock on 1 June 2013. Show Organiser and Club Chairman Richard Clarke did a great job in organising the event, though he admits to a few hiccups. That he wants to do the whole thing again next year proves he is a glutton for punishment. The format was pretty traditional, traders, club stands and a competition. The competition is open to all but not entered by Salisbury IPMS members to ensure it is transparently fair. The standard of entries was extremely high. This 1/48 FW190D was beautifully done with great engine bay detail but failed to make the top two in its catogory.
A list of the top placed models will be available soon. Only Gold and Silver medals are awarded, necessary to ensure we can keep a very low entry fee- only 50p. But it is fair to say that a lot more could have been handed out as there was so many entries worthy of award.
