Overseas Shows

IPMS Bruxelles Model Fair, 2004

Brussels, Belgium.

Once more, back to Belgium to display at the biennial IPMS Bruxelles Model Fair,
on 4th & 5th September 2004.

As usual, the show was held in the Air Museum section of the Brussels Military Museum, at the Parc du Cinquantenaire.

This year, the entire show was based around a "theme" of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Brussels by the Allies in World War II. In fact, the whole city was marking the occasion, not just the model show.

Because of this (and also coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the Red Arrows), we decided to have a "central theme" of RAF Display Teams.

This is something we had already done several times in 2004 for the Red Arrows 40th anniversary - but this time it had more significance as we were also representing the Allies.

There are 118 models on the display, all in 1/72nd scale, built by 8 of our SIG members.

Purely by chance, we discovered that there was also a Beer Festival in Brussels that weekend too, in the Grand Place.... A complete coincidence - but a very happy one !!

A few impressive views of the excellent Museum itself :
