IPMS Scale Model World 2013

So yesterday myself and Maelstrom went to the IPMS Scale Model World show and I thought I'd share a few pictures.

Keep in mind I took close to 200 so I had to whittle them down somewhat for this post.

While most models on show are scale models rather than gaming type pieces they are well worth a look as the modelling and painting work is excellent in many cases.



While this isn't as weathered as I like tanks to be I do love the interior detail shown below.



The above is a scratchbuilt model. Was very nice. And below is what appears to be a Battlestar Galactica fighter in RAF colours...



This was a great piece, unsurprisingly won an award. Got a few more pics of it, the damage modelled into the plane was very well done.


Now below is basically a large barrel...but I've not seen a better example of weathering. The rest of the piece as great detail such as the wasps (bit of a naff picture annoyingly).




Some fantasy/sci fi pieces including 40k...






Isn't he cute?


And some more great examples of heavy weathered vehicles:



There were a lot of pieces like the below diorama. Couldn't really pick out one I liked most so I just picked this one at random.


This guy is great, another scratch built model. Not sure what to say about it...




I loved this vehicle. Post (zombie) apocalypse vehicle. Great weathering and stowage.





That'll do I think.
