i just carn't believe the quality of the models on display, it look so different to the UK IPMS nationals.

I'll expect my invite next year Jim so i can see this first hand

well done to all involved

Hai Jim,

I agree with your editorial on page one of this report except for one aspect:

These people are modellers, not necessarily professional web developers. Providing a professional web environment in which clubs can present themselves could be one of the ambitions (yet another one) of kitmaker?

Of course, it would only be possible if the clubs themselves would be interested to manage their cubs website on kitmaker

There's a tank on the 8th pg, photo 29 of 70, with some sort of hexagonal camo pattern. It looks sort of like a Walker Bulldog but the driver's hatch is on the wrong side and there's (I'm sure) many other differences... can anyone PM me with some info to shed some light this tank? Thanks!!!

Thanks Jim for sharing your comments. I know that my eyes are getting worse but I thought that the lighting left a lot to be desired, and I will never walk around with a flashlight.

Your friend's tumbleweed tank was awesome!

what's that cool little WW! tank on page 2? Is this the WW1 armour version of Luft 46?
