Overseas Shows

IPMS Deutschland Show, 2009

Gatow, Berlin, Germany.

Our third trip to Berlin for IPMS Deutschland's annual show, on 19th & 20th September 2009.

Our display stand, with a "re-worked" Fly Navy central theme

Once again, we were in our "usual place" in Hanger 3.

For our display, we decided to do something different and reprised our "Fly Navy" theme from Scale Modelworld 2005. We put 137 models on our display, 2 in 1/32nd scale, 7 in 1/48th scale and all the rest in 1/72nd scale, built by 6 of our SIG members.

More than just the model show, this time it was part of a much larger "Flugplatzfest" (Airfield Festival) with other attractions such as Veterans Groups, Military displays, radio controlled model aircraft flying and displays by the Berlin Polizei Motorcycle Display Team. A number of the Museum's aircraft were also opened up for the public to see and/or go inside.
