Thanks for the link Jean-Paul, some great figures. Not so many flats but some marvellous work there.

These are quite nice.  It looks like, as always, there was some pretty stunning work.


I am particularly partial to the set of Spitfires - what lovely work.  Thank you for sharing these!

I am hoping to get over there in 2019 but we'll see. As an American, when we don't understand a language, we will simply ask our questions in English repeatedly in a louder and louder voice until someone answers. It works 10-20% of the time

Hi lads, just a few of my feelings from my first visit of Kulmbach show. I have arrived around 11:00 to Kulmbach, luckily we have found soon the hall for sellers, so it was the good point to start the tour.
First we left for coffee to city centre, than to exhibition. Kulmbach is nice small city, a quiet city  :)  maybe it was just a saturday, but you have not met so many people on the streets except of city centre. The exhibition was fine, many paintings were pure masterclass, i guess Ricks diorama was unbelievably the best I ever seen on my own eyes. Maybe the hall was too big or it is just a feeling but it was half empty? ........ ???  than we moved to selling hall, where I spent more hours than I expected. It was absolutely full of sellers and buyers, sometimes no space to move. Of course I have visited BFFS stand to introduce myself and next year I hope I ll join for longer time.  8) 


see you in 2018  :)

Thank you Joerg for your comments.

I noticed two years ago that only gold an silver were cited, not bronze (too many) ... but even less this year ??
As far as language, I know the name is



and giving only in German is perhaps not very welcoming, but:

1) Since GB wished to quit Europe, English language is no longer is predominant language in Europe like German is with Autria, Germany, Switzerland; perhaps we may have to change for Europe too, and put Englsih at le level of Scandinavian, Dutch, Portugese with the populatin weight given by Ireland only in the future?

2) It is a German competition primarely, and it could be that English language is not familar in Bavarian aereas among people as Kulmbach is not an International Business or economical Centre in Germany?

3) You will find exactly the same behaviour for competitions at Montrouge, Lyon, Sèvres .. all in French ONLY, or Folkestone, all in English ONLY.  I don't speak bout the United States, as oustide themselves, the world is not existing and barbarian! (although they could also use Spanish, widely spead in the USA.

The pity can be indeed the conclusions given to the exhibtin, which could have been more structured and formal, as the area benefits as much from foreigners to Bavararia than the local people!!  This is called hospitality.

Pity for not havng been able to attend, but promised, in two years, I wll be there !!!

I think my English speraking friends could express it more subtle:

The "International" Figure and Diorama Show (half the audience from France, Belgium, Britain, U.S. , Italy, Spain...)
 had a presentation master, who did not even manage to say "Good evening, friends"  or  "Bon soir",
not to speak about the further text of the show in another language than German.

That's the one point.

The other thing is the pictures.
I can (half) understand, if they don't show every Bronze winner display (many, many of them),
but they even could not show the GOLD winning displays (all of them, perhaps a dozen ?).

And (my minimum expactation) - they did not have a headline on a huge screen, what category we were talking about  >:(   
=> five or six headlines, whose writing could have been done in two years time before.

So, now I am in rage again ....
but to change the focus => the exhibits were of high and outstanding quality
and to see them "in real" was far better than to wait for a picture  ;)

And the BFFS has (again) some award winners in it's ranges.  :D
