There is a gallery opened for the show and I am busy to load progressively some 200 pictures (time to remove all dust spots given by the lights, add the painter's and description names....)... and the majorit of the flats exposed by our friends of the BFFS (long tables this year) ...
Flats = 91 in competition (2 Juniors, 5 Beginners, 33 Standards, 51 Masters, one Green), record high this year in Europe (perhaps ww!) an figurines aligned with no space, see the crazy pictures of the contest room !  .... and again a nice vitrine with the key paintings of Catherine Cesario.

Well again of all the guys at the show no one want's to tell you about the weekend so here go's


This is the big one of the year for the scale modeller with figures, tanks, ships and aircraft all there for you to see and marvel at the skills, just under 2,000 in the competition and around 90 was flats!! the place was buzzing   ;) 
Easily over 40 clubs from all over Europe and countless traders to talk too! it really is the place to be, in the evening your still there talking and drinking with your fellow modellers, the organisers arrange a meal for Saturday and Sunday night for all and music entertainment is laid on so your singing and dance skills can be used  ;D over all a great weekend is had by all!!


I have no photos before you ask!! I was just to busy talking to new and old friends to take any, sure Michel has a few hundred to post  :o
As I said this is the show! if you have not been try and get there next year or the year after as in 2020 it is hosting the World Expo and after that who knows.


This is a one place show, you stay in the hotel (special rates for SMC) the hotel restaurants and bars are all open for you to chill out and there's always someone to talk to :)       


Big pat on the back to our guys in the comp Nick, Trevor, Chris, Peter and Michel all winners!!  well done ;D   


Next year we will be there again and it's rumoured that we'll have a trader selling flats :o so see you there.
