I didn't get a chance to see a damned thing all weekend - except Airfix's new Hellcat and that was only because we were sited right next to it.

The best ship of the show was HMS Hood by Jim Baumann:

no announcement for instance of a new kit for carrier Queen Elizabeth, either at 1/700 or at 1/350 ? As this show is in UK, which is the priority market for this ship, we may expect it will start there ...

I wasn't looking too closely to avoid temptation (went with a permissible purchase list and still managed to 'impulse' purchase).

Best unknown new item for me was the Pontos 1/144 Flower-class set scheduled to ship in January but taking pre-orders at the show. Looks significantly better than the 3x Eduard sets (just my opinion), which I did look at as well, and costs about the same (at the show anyway). I was struggling with the cost of the Eduard sets (about GBP38 each?) when looking at what you were getting for the money.

Starling had their new 1/350 River-class to buy. First thing I purchased and looking at it in the hotel room that evening, it's really nice. First time I've seen mushroom vents molded as mushrooms, not stalks.

L'Arsenal had their 1/350 Hunt and 1/400 Georges Leygues on display and available to buy, and a nice set of 1/144 items for Revell's Flower, which may not be so new. I spent some time trekking between Pontos and L'Arsenal trying to decide if I wanted the boxed set or select individual items that Pontos didn't cover; I bought a few items and now wish I'd bought the set....

I don't track Atlantic models or Tom's/WEM so closely so I don't know if they had any new stuff - there didn't seem to be anything presented in a particularly eye-grabbing "just released" fashion.

Had an interesting conversation with James Duff of Sovereign Hobbies who kind enough to provide a full explanation of his discoveries on RN507A and 507B amongst other things (it's quite extensive). I'm sure he's said it quite a few times now but there was no indication whatsoever that he's getting weary of talking about it to those that ask.

Not quite on topic - one of my impulse buys was a NeOmega catapult section and dolly/trolley for the Airfix 1/48 Walrus. It's based on the catapults found on the cruisers/turret tops. A little presentation gem.

Finally, congrats to Jim Baumann on his Hood. I've seen the model on the WIP thread here but you really can't get a true understanding of quite how small, delicate, and well executed the work is until you're wishing you'd brought your optivisor to the show.

I cannot remember any ship kit ever announced at Telford. Telford is an impressive show regarding the exhibited models and there are a lot of interesting dealers. I would recommend to visit it. But announcements? Also this time the new kits I have seen were all announced much earlier.

Lars,
Our 1/350 T class submarine was available at Telford first even if announced earlier, the 1/700 was unavailable only due to casting issues. The L'Arsenal 1/350 Hunt class was announced two days before the show. I would tend to think they were new announcements.

Mike

Due to a bit of a majior business emergency on my return to 1/1 scale life on the Monday...

I am rather behind on Telford reporting / analysis etc-

I also shot some photos--

- though must say that Maxim has done a very comprehensive set of photos... :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1:
with no omissions that I could spot ...( yet ! :big_grin: )

I shall submit any images here that fill the gaps or may have different angles etc
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Richard P for the kind words!
I was pleased and honoured with its result - though I must confess ...I too think that overall the model is pretty OK !

It was great to catch up with old chums from around the world-- and make new friends, and (incredibly) not manage to catch up with others ( Rich P ! )

more soon

JB

Well, following Jim's comments...

I must say that it is nice to see my writting on the Best Ship form :)
And overall, the entrants in the competition were of much higher quality than last years, with the usual floatation of entries per class (which is always an incognita)!
Some calsses were easier to Judge, others involved some serious arguments, on a very friendly fashion of course, between the Nautical Judge Board :)

Thank you Lars, for the photo report
Cheers
Rui

Here is the third batch of photos with ship models:

Telford, part 3


Among those photos are the presentation by Fine Waterline with the topic "100 years Polish Navy":

@ Jim: I am sure you have found additional models, better views... There were so many models that I am sure that I did not cover all models.

Many thanks for all you work to give those of us who couldn't get there a chance to see what we were missing!

In the latest batch as shown in photo 88, what stand was it that had the LCT5 (unpainted) with a full load of vehicles aboard and was that in 1/35th scale?

Was it the Mulberry Harbour/dock Special Interest Group?

Yes, that was the Mulberry Harbour/dock Special Interest Group and the scale was 1/35. Really impressive!

That was fronted by Pete Bowyer of M.A.N. Models based in Scotland.
