Basler Modellbautage 2014

  • move
Early in October the Basel Section of IPMS Switzerland held their annual model show. As I live only 200 km north of Basel (and being also a member of IPMS Switzerland) I joined that expo already for the 5. time. Beside looking at all the fantastic built models, meeting some of my friends from Switzerland and having a chat here and there makes such an expo always worth a visit for me. The majority of the exhibits were again aircrafts in various scales from all epochs and the „Scale Knights“, a SIG within the Basel club, had made a really interesting task for this year. They took the quarterscale kit of the Hobbyboss Me 262 and built several „What If“ models. Though I'm not really a „What If“ fan, I was amazed, what these guys made of the good old Me 262. So there was a dutch Tigermeet 262, a USN carrier based 262, a 262 U-2, a 262 target tug, a Patrouille Suisse 262, a sea resue 262 based on the construction of a „Walrus“ and so on. The idea I liked most was a nice little dio with a civil 262 on floats somewhere on a lake in Canada. So I hope you enjoy the photos that I made. And maybe you recognize some of my models …. ;-)

About Torsten Rossmann (BlackWidow)
FROM: EUROPEAN UNION

My name is Torsten and I live in Karlsruhe in the southwest of Germany, close to the french border. Back in 2001 I started building model kits with a P-40 by Revell. Since then the virus has got me. I'm mostly interested in WW2 era with all these fantastic propeller aircrafts (from todays view). My ...

Torsten, Thank you for taking the time to take, edit, and then share all those pictures with us. While I rarely get to travel to any IPMS conventions these days, I do really appreciate the opportunity to view pictures of the models. Joel

Hi Torsten, thanks but as a note.... the Scale Knights are a small group of modelers based around Basel/Switzerland which are NOT part of IPMS Basel as mentioned earlier.😉 Greets Christian, switzerland

Those floats are off an A6M-2N if I'm not mistaken. I'm not a huge 'what if' fan either, but I like that.
