Telford IPMS Scale Model World 2011 Pt III - Great north Roads and Military Modelling from the S.I.G.s

Scale ModelWorld linkWell the third part of the Telford gallery is here and this instalment is all about the special interest groups’ armour kits – we have a bunch of pictures here from some very talented modellers and pretty much what they have been doing for the last few months is evident here!
Also at the show was Simon from Great north Roads – he creates amazing diorama bases from various materials but most notably his best dioramas are in a top quality light and strong dental plaster

Dental plaster is an extremely durable material. It can be drilled, filed and carved with a variety of tools. There is no need to prime the kit before painting. You can use both enamel and acrylic paint on the castings straight out of the box. If these bases DID break – well the good thing is they do not crumble – I have known Simon for a while and all of the show floor dioramas he has here have been travelling around the county for a long long time – so it’s a durable and not to mention high quality diorama alternative to vac form or resin.
This bunker has been around the country many times!! still looks great though.

Simon’s store is on line so check it out for some of the great kits he has to slap under your new tank – here are a few of his bases which would not have looked out of place on the judging tables… After Simon’s work well go straight into the Armour and military from the special interest groups which had amazing work – Competition Military entries will be later this week as well in another gallery( amongst the many i have taken far too many pics!).
