Overseas Shows

AMV83 Maquettexpo, 2004

Hyeres, France.

Not a "new" show by any means - in fact, this was the 14eme Edition (14th Show) by French club "AMV83". However, this year saw the ADTSIG's first "official" visit to display there, on 16th & 17th October.

Hyeres is just about as far south as you can get in the South of France, on the Mediterranean coast, near Toulon. The show is held in the town Casino - not actually amongst the Gaming Tables, but in the "Forum du Casino".

This trip was somewhat different to our "normal" overseas shows, insomuch as only two of our UK-based SIG members went. However, several of our French SIG members are based in the South of France and are members of AMV83 - and so we still managed to put on an impressive display, thanks mainly to our "host" SIG members !

The display itself looks rather different to our usual SIG displays, as it utilised much of the display materials from our French members (flags, namecards, etc). Our French members also enjoy making models of entire teams too - something that most other members don't do. So, this particular display became very much a great example of how they do things.

There are 80 models on the display, all in 1/72nd scale, built by four of our SIG members.
