Beautifull pictures, thanks for sharing.

I just fell in love with that WMM Falke in 1:72 ...

HI, Rui!
Great shots of the show.
It sure felt strange not being there for the first time in a decade. I had that strange feeling that I should have been somplace else all weekend.
As you so eloquently put it: There's always 2010.

Great pictures Rui! Thank you very much for sharing them with us.
My model club president sent me some photos of the show that he got off the IPMS site. The sad part was the majority of pics were planes, tanks, and autos, just 3 ship pics. Talk about being jilted! Again thank you for the ship pics.

Hi Rui,
thank you for that excellent report. I can imagine how many hours you spent bringing it to the net. You did a great job preparing the pics for sharing with us.

It was a wonderful time there talking with you. Unfortunately the time was much to short for our enthusiastic talks about modelling.

Many thanks
Peter

Thank you to all for the compliments, but I only took the photos (well, there are four of my models too)!
It is those who take their ship models to the event that need to be congratulated, since so many things can happen to damage these delicate pieces! Editing just comes with the job!
I think that this works in two ways:
- "Reward" those who took their models with some air time, independently of skill - not all the models displayed were top notch, but still they (the ship modelers) had guts to display them;
- "Reward" those who attended the show with a Ship Only specialized view (so many things are missed over the two days) and, especially for those who, for several reasons (distance, time, money) couldn't be there in the flesh. This way I can give a little happiness, I hope, for those ship models enthusiasts!

To Jan:
The Falke is a really true masterpiece! Just looking at the unfinished model makes us wonder all it's potential, the needed craftsmanship to make the master and most of all, the uniqueness of this vessel in a usual scale for torpedo boats.
You can talk over it with the "Father" of the Falke, Peter Platner (goldenarrow)

To Guido:
Consider that next year you will be there with the German Gamblers Team, with your usual stunning stand, with you models to enter the competition and if all went well on this side, we can have a couple of beers over our usual modeling discussions!
Don't despair! You were missed but not forgotten!

To Peter Plattner:
Yes, it was kind of "short", but I am sure we'll keep in touch!

Cheers,
Rui

Dear Rui,

thank you for your kind coments about my Adler / Falke tropedoboat. mastering this piece required much mor tim and engagement than ever expected. but now its done. Unfortunatelly I couldn┤t finish the Model for the Telford show.

You are absoltly right with your thoughts abot the modellers presenting their work in Telford.
First ,its often a big task to carry models in good condition that far.... And everybody can tell storries about some mishaps.
Second, I truly love this huge amount of different styles of models all worth to be registered and looked at.
And last but not least Telford is like a family gathering of shipmodellers spread all arround the world. I would need more than a week to pay everyone the attetion requiered.
This worldwide friendship, for me, is the most outstandig aspect of this show.

regards Peter

Thanks for taking the time to put that together Rui. As I was only there on the Saturday I never had the time to properly browse the displays and comp area.



I see you found the scratchbuilt CVA-01 by Geoff Baker of the What If SIG .

BTW I put my name down on the form for the Carrier SIG - not heard anything yet

Hi Neil

Glad you liked the report! Sorry we didn't met, though...
Give them some slack... I remember when I put my name down on SmallWarships SIG, lead by Les Brown, I was eager to hear something from them, until I got the SIG Newsletter. It's their usual way of communicating with members. Another way is for you to make a first move and contact them again, via letter or email - just check the IPMS-UK SIG/Branches contacts

Cheers,
Rui

Having not seen the Adler/Falke in real life i can only judge it from the pictures - but from that, and trusting Ruis judgement and experience I am seriously tempted!

Do you know anything about releasedata and price range ?

The hull lookes like a onepiece cast - is it massive or spin casted?

Cheers/Jan

Jan I perfectly share your opinion about the Adler, that's a hell of a great model Peter just did!
I can promise you that if you decide to build that one online, you will have me checking hourly to see the progress
And thanks for sharing Rui! Your icebreaker looks as ever so great!

Oh, I wasn't having a go, I was just saying.

BTW, I second the comments about your icebreaker - is there a build of it on here (I have one of the boxings of this kit)

Hi guys...

On the Adler/Falke:
I would say that the hull is one casted resin piece... With lots of parts to add on it
Ask Peter or check http://www.wmm.at/ and wait for the model to be available online

To Jean-Bernard and Neil
Yes, the Shiraze was one of the most colorful ships on display
Of course there was the 1/350 Soya on the Naval Dio competition area with even more color!

Neil, I have not made a full build blog of it... but some in progress shots can be seen here and a MOD here.

Hope this helps
Cheers,
Rui

Me, I liked all those fine resin ships from the age of iron (late 1890's) and I loved that Predetor kit, problem is I want a real one. Oh well it is first on my list when I win the Mega-lottery.
