Aircraft models at Thionville Expo 2010
The Thionville Expo is probably the biggest modeling event in the north east of France and every two years, model builders from France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and even Switzerland meet there to show their latest models in two huge halls. This year’s show took place the 16 and 17 of October and every genre was of course represented (Armor, ship, figure, etc…) but I have almost only shot pictures of aircraft. You can see a small excerpt of what was on display in this photo feature. Enjoy…

Hi Steffen Come the day... given the chance... I'll join you guys in your neck of the woods - it looks a pretty good part of the world to be a modeller! All the best Rowan

Thank you for the awesome photos Jean-Luc! A nice selection of aircraft there- in particular I love the Hawker (Sea?) Fury, that big Russian jet bomb with the Mig 23 (or 27?), and the more unusual French twin prop types.

Hi Rowan how about February ... Nuremberg Toy Fair is also a fun place BTW I do not want to misuse the thread, but as I also shot a few different pix I would like to post a link to my Expo report (many pix may look familiar though ) Sadly I cannot afford a better camera so my pix are not quite as clear and stable as Jean-Lucs .. but I am sure he likes this picture: we may see some Darts practice soon cheers Steffen

Hi all, The place were we live is indeed covered with woods. Especially the road between Marc's house and mine. I think Steffen can confirm this... Not at all! It's nice to see some additional photos. I completely forgot to shoot our own models for example... In the photo above, I'm the person in the background judging the contest models. When I touch the models with my nose, I know I'm too close... Jean-Luc

Hi Steffen I'd really love to go to the Toy Fair, but at the moment I simply couldn't afford a trip abroad. Of course, if I can find a little job, that may change - but then I might not be able to take the time off work! Catch-22! All the best Rowan

That's great I really want to join you....one day...... I liked the SM.82 with complicated camo (Even with brush), like a million tiny worms The BF-109 in the 2nd from the end photos Is GREAT (I am prepairing for a personall BF-109 Campaign but in the future) Also the P-40 in the 5th photo from the end is really great, I'll build one in the P-40 campaign Cheers Nick
