Southern England again played host to period and replica World War Two military vehicles, at the annual Overlord Show, which was held during the late-May Bank Holiday weekend. Organised by the Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club, the three-day event in Denmead, Hampshire, brought together many of the UK’s best-restored military vehicles. For modellers of these particular subjects, it’s a onestop reference goldmine. All the vehicles are available for close-up inspection and owners are happy to explain specific modifications and any unusual unit markings. Add a model stall selling a selection of armoured fighting vehicle (AFV) kits, and piles of rare second-hand books on tanks, soft-skins and militaria, and the event is the ideal place for any AFV modeller to spend the weekend.
