Big Big Love…


The latest issue of the IPMS (UK) Society magazine

I guess it’s my age, as they say that time appears to go faster as you get older, but 2017 seems to be flying by. There should be another issue of this magazine out around the time of Scale ModelWorld 2017, but this being the November issue it’s time to make sure that you are all up to speed with your preparations for The World’s Greatest Model Show, SMW 2017! So first things first. You do know the dates, I’m sure, but no harm in a quick reminder that you need to have the weekend of 11-12th November free of all other considerations, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc., and you need to be heading for The International Centre (TIC) in Telford, Shropshire. Now I do realise that there are a few poor souls who still think that Telford is in the back of beyond but as I never tire of telling people, this is certainly far from the case. One of the reasons that TIC has become such a popular venue is that it is so easy to reach, being very close to the M54 motorway and approximately twenty minutes from Junction 10 of the M6. According to the ever reliable Google Maps, Birmingham Airport is a forty minute drive from the venue and if you avoid the Friday afternoon crawl you can drive from Central London in less than two and a half hours. Okay, it’d take you over six hours to drive from Aberdeen but I don’t think that’s too bad all things considered (I have lived on the Moray Firth) and you can always fly to Brum. For that matter, there are three other international airports well within a couple of hours drive from Telford. No excuse for not attending. Having said all that, you of course will have already made your plans…
