IPMS Shropshire show 2015 - Japanese Aviation SIG

We had a fantastic showing of models at the IPMS Shropshire show held at the RAF Museum Cosford on Sunday, perhaps, a better display than we have at Telford with SMW, so I think it was a rousing success. We had eight folks displaying, Bob Foster, Tim Cant, Lawrence Paffett, Dick Delaney, Richard Brooker, Paul Bebbington, Andy Binks and I. We paid for two additional tables and had a linear display on four tables. Two snaps are attached, one of the overall display just before the public came in and another with Paul, Richard and I that Stella took. Malcolm Barrett visited the show and spent some time behind the table with us. I know I've left someone off, but can't think of who for love nor money.
It was a wonderful show in a magnificent setting, and of course Gary Stevens, organiser of the show, kindly sited us before the Dinah. What more could we ask? We provided forty-one models in 1/24, 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 scales, and something that I have to share with you is that a visitor from Japan stopped and thanked us for displaying models of Japanese aircraft. That doesn't happen every day and was quite touching.
