Overseas Shows

Plastic & Steel 2015

Affligem, Belgium.

Our return visit to the IPMS Belgium National Convention,
Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th October 2015.

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 !
