A very busy meeting with a huge number of competition entries and a few work in progress items including Andy Bambers huge Russian style missile launcher scratch built according to his imagination. Bobs huge 1/32nd scale Lancaster converted to a Dam Busters version complete with bouncing bomb on a trolley and a host of other accompanying vehicles took up a whole table !
So the competition went as follows. In first place was Bobs 1/32nd scale Dambusters Lancaster diorama. Second was Daves “Reaper Dragon” and in third was Guys Revell 1/48th scale Messerschmitt BF-109-G10.
There were many more excellent entries so enjoy the photos.
Next month as another open competition and before that on Sunday the 28th of July is our local club show at Hannakins Farm Community Centre, Rosebay Avenue,
Billericay, Essex, CM12 0SZ.
Admission is £3.50 for adults and £1.50 for children and concessions.
See you there, until next time, happy modelling.
URGENT we will NOT be attending the IPMS IPSWICH MODEL DAY on June 22nd this year.
Due to lack of numbers able to attend we have had to cancel our table at the Ipswich show this year so if you’re going please don’t bring any models for diaplay and expect to pay an entry fee.
Of course it doesn’t stop you going but the Chelmsford Model Club will not have a table and are not officially attending.
Apologies for the late notice.
We’re not talking Conservative leadership competition but something much more important the Chelmsford Model Club May open competition. It’s called an “open” competition as anyone can enter anything as there is no specific theme. This months winner was Dave Oliver with his “Reaper Fire Giant Jailer“. In 2nd place was Andy Tebbutts German half track and in third place was Stewart Pages Hawker Tempest. Thanks to Bob for supplying me with the pictures and competition winner details as I wasn’t able to attend on Tuesday. Remember next months theme is “Armour” so please bring something appropriate if you want to enter the competition. You are of course welcome to bring other models to display. Happy modelling.
This months competition was an un-themed competition so anything goes. You might have been forgiven that it was only for aircraft given the number entered but that was last month ! Perhaps there were a few that didn’t get finished in time ? Well to the main order of business. This months winner was yet again Mr Phil Lloyd-Worth with his highly detailed Henkeil 219 UHU. Runner up this time was Bob Patmore with his well weathered Japanese fighter Niki-Ja and bringing up the rear in third place was Andy Tebbit with his Warhammer “Sentinel”. Thank you to all who entered and remember next month is another open competition, until then happy modelling.
Every March we hold the “Dave Heywood” trophy in memory of a former club member. As Dave was very interested in all things to do with aviation the theme is anything aircraft related. This could of course be a plane but if you’re a figure modeller it could be a pilot or if you’re a ship modeller it might be an aircraft carrier. This years competition attracted a good number of entries built and painted to a very high standard. The winner of this years trophy was Phil Lloyd-Worth with his impressive 1/32nd scale Horton 229. Runner up was Ulrich Kempf with his excellent 1/48th scale Henschel HE219 UHU and in third place was Steve Callers 1/24th scale with his P-47 Thunderbolt. Congratulations to the winner and to all those who entered this year. Next month is an open competition so bring anything, cheers for now and happy modelling.
