      Thanks for posting these Niels.

      The new RJ 70/85/100 is from which company?

      Good to see the new Braz bits, too.

      Great photos, my favorite is probably the SABENA 747. Is it just me, or is the LH cargo 777 a -300ER kit that wasn't cut down enough?

      Yes the LH 777 was a -300. Such a shame that either the builder didn't research correctly or ignored the decal instructions. No doubt I'll be told that it's their model and they can build how they like, but even so...
      There were a couple of nice Norwegian 787 on different stands and a few other decent airliner models dotted around. I bought some new resin accessories for the EE tristar from Braz, some new decals from Classic-airlines.com and a couple of older models but didn't buy as much as I did last year.

      Great photos and thanks for sharing them Niels,

      A Brabazon and Princess both built and on display :-) Any info on the Princess? I've always hoped for one in small scale and reasonably priced. I see a Seawings 1/72 Vac which I suspect is the kit.

      Not only the length. The engine strakes are outboard (should be inboard) and there are no wing escape paths on cargo birds. Reasearch!!!!

      Great photos, Neils. Thanks for posting.

      C'mon guys,

      Find something nice to say about the Lufthansa Cargo 777. Yea there are "some" inaccuracies. I didn't know Lufthansa flew cargo 777's till seeing the model and photos. Looks pretty cool seeing a 777 without the windows.

      Ken, I think the paintwork is well done on it, probably better than I've ever been able to pull off, that's why it's a shame that the fuse is off. To be honest, that model would do better at an IPMS than an LHC 777 that I built, because I'd have had a harder time getting the cuts right and consequently been dinged for it, as I have in the past at model shows. For me, the lesson learned was "don't tell them what you changed in a kitbash, then they'll know where to spot the build flaws"

      I'm afraid no, I can't overlook the incorrect fuselage length, engine strakes maybe. No doubt I'll be banned or have this comment deleted, but basic research would have shown the builder that the fuselage on LH777 is a -200 therefore shorter than the Zvezda kit (a -300).

      If I was to build a Spitfire (or some other subject that I don't build or loathe) then I would have at least conducted a simple bit of research. That's as much fun as building the model. During my research, I would have noted either mentally or written it on the instructions that this needs to be removed/ added/ reshaped etc, etc. Its not like the LH 777 is a rare aircraft.
      This is quite a symptom of today's "nobody is wrong" mindset. I'll attach a picture of my finished BA Concorde (never mind that it's painted lime green and resembles a DC-10).

      I understand there were problems and this was not one of their better shows. This from info I'm seeing here in the states. Did anyone see or heard of problems that was there.

      There were a few issues. Missing the 2 minute silence on Remembrance Day (after making numerous announcements beforehand) and from what it seems, being a member of IPMS doesn't seem to hold any benefits - members having to queue outside whilst non-members or those without pre-booked tickets (me on both counts) could go inside to the heat and buy their tickets. Just some of the little things I saw and a finger wagging one way conversation between a visitor and an IPMS member complaining about "the terrible organisation and the parking??!!"

      But on the whole I enjoyed I.

      Well if you're banned I'll quit in solidarity! It's a sad state of affairs if we can't comment on blatant inaccuracies and failures of basic research. Whatever happened to the concept of the "critical friend"? I hope somebody tactfully and constructively told the builder about the errors in his model and maybe pointed him to sources of information of which he was unaware. If that was done appropriately and accepted in good part his next model should be more accurate (and the one after that) which is a good outcome for him and for airliner modelling.

      Thank you for the photos. They complete mine.
      I was running around 2 days there, and it is surprizing what I missed.
      :-)
      I just can recommend to see this show!

      I have been to this show a lot of times now, and this was my first visit since 2011, I don't see a lot of change with the show, just more people coming, the very first time I went in 1999, they used just 2 halls including the competition, then a few years later the competition moved to the smallest hall, then later more SIG's went in there, and now the competition has move upstairs, so it just keeps getting bigger, with some attendant problems.
      Waiting outside is sort of OK if the weather is not too bad, was just a touch chilly for a visitor from the Tropics, but I managed until we got inside. A lot of shows I go to here in Australia have people going along the queue selling the tickets to stop the automatic slow down that happens otherwise, I think this is an idea they could easily adopt.
      Much better these days is using the very large foyer area to have a Coffee shop, indeed the spreading around of catering into differ parts of the venue is a great idea. Parking is always a problem, we ended up in the shopping centre main car park, and had to walk nearly 1/2 a mile (oh the humanity), then there is the wait until they release the hordes into the venue, nothing has changed there
      I also didn't get much, just a couple of Laurent's F28's, some decals and the Super VC10 off Ray at 26, a fair bit of resin off Ivo at Braz, but overall I had a great time, no idea why anyone would say this was not one of the better shows, to me they are all great shows, maybe I have lower standards.
