As usual, the show was held in the Bellekouter
Exhibition Hall, Affligem, which is located to the North-West of Brussels. A
group of us from three different countries (the UK, Germany and Holland) made
the journey to put on another display there.
Our display was staged on four single-depth tables,
giving us an area of about 8 metres x 1 metre. There are 113 models on the
whole display, three in 1/32nd scale, seven in 1/48th, with all the rest in
1/72nd scale. They were made by ten of our members.
We always have a great time whenever we visit
Belgium, as we are always made very welcome and get to see many of our
international friends too. Once again, we were joined by the IPMS(UK) Bomber
Command SIG and there were several other traders and clubs from the UK in
attendance as well.
Of special significance, this show marked the
"retirement" of long-standing IPMS Belgium President, Didier Waelkens, a very
good friend of ours. Didier has done so much for IPMS Belgium, so thoroughly
deserves the special presentation made to him !
