Overseas Shows

Plastic & Steel 2012

Affligem, Belgium.

Back to Belgium once again, but this time for a different Show, in a different venue.
Our first visit to the Belgian "Nationals", Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th October 2012.

A wonderful range of Affligem Beers !The show was held in the Bellekouter Exhibition Hall, Affligem. A town made famous for a wonderful beer - which was also a good "selling point" for us going there (!) - Affligem is located to the North-West of Brussels, making it really easily accessible from the UK.

Our display was staged on four single-depth tables, giving us an area of about 8 metres x 1 metre. There are 114 models on the whole display, one in 1/32nd scale, ten in 1/48th, with all the rest in 1/72nd scale. They were made by six of our members.

As well as the International Competition and display stands covering all genres of modelling, the show also featured an exhibition of civil and Military vehicles. It was attended by model clubs and traders from all over Belgium and France, so we saw many of our "old friends" again - and were also very pleased to have some of our Dutch SIG members join us at our display stand too.

The show was well supported from the UK, with the Bomber Command SIG of IPMS(UK) joining us on our trip and IPMS(UK) Branches Salisbury and Mid-Sussex displaying there too. There were also several traders from the UK.
