Chris Clifford and Stu Fone report on this year’s IPMS (UK) extravaganza at Telford

Peter Castle is possibly still stunned at becoming Scale Modelworld 2017’s Senior National Champion, with what was his first competition entry, ever! His mind-boggling 1/18 Spitfire Mk.XIVe was based on HPH Model’s Seafire FR.47, and was a masterclass in scratch-building.
The UK’s Jamie Haggo is renowned for his weathering skills, and they were fully evident on his ‘derelict’ Hobby Boss 1/72 Mi-8 Hip, in Aeroflot markings, which won Gold.
Prentis’ 1/48 MPC/Round 2 Eagle Transporter was a notable entry, and featured cockpit/navigation/landing lights, careful weathering and Alclad-finished engine bells.

There’s always high expectation in the weeks preceding Scale ModelWorld.
