Overseas Shows

IPMS Bruxelles Model Fair, 2008

Brussels, Belgium.

Back to Belgium once again, to display at the IPMS Bruxelles Model Fair on
6th & 7th September 2008 .

After a short break, 2008 saw us once again back at one of our favourite shows, in one of our favourite venues - the Brussels Air Museum.

Their show is normally held every two years, except there was no show in 2006, due to some renovation and refurbishment work being carried out in the Museum. But in 2008 it was on again - and we were back !

The popularity of this show, it's location, ease of transport - not to mention the hospitality of our Belgian hosts and friends - meant that this year saw the largest British contingent yet at a Brussels show.

Not only was the ADTSIG there " in force" with nine SIG members, but we were also joined by the IPMS(UK) French Air Forces SIG, Bomber Command SIG, F-4 Phantom SIG, as well as IPMS(UK) Branches West Sussex and Ipswich.

There are 152 models on the display, 1 in 1/32nd scale, 7 in 1/48th and all the rest in 1/72nd scale, built by 8 of our SIG members.

As happened previously four years ago, this weekend also happened to coincide with the Belgian Beer Festival in the Grand Place, Brussels....!
