    SCALE MODEL EXHIBITION 2012 - POST MORTEM

    Post  Proximo41 on Sun Mar 11, 2012 7:46 pm

    Now that all the models are back home and in their showcases (or in ther boxes under the bed Smile ), i would like to congratulate all the members for the fantastic expo that we had!! in my opinion it was one of the best expos yet. it was packed with awesome models. were surely showed our potential!! we are simply the best, we are simply a band of brothers. the only downside that i can find is that we had no bloody COFFEE!!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

    CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR'S EXPO SO THAT I CAN SEE THE 3 NEW 109F's FROM A CERTAIN OLD TIMER Smile lol! lol!

    HAPPY MODELLING GUYS!!

    Well done to everyone for a successful expo, the ambience was great, the crowd was very good and constant considering that the elements were against us and above all the brotherhood that makes the SSM family ... lets start planning for next year especially now that we need to extend the aircraft area to have those much expected 109s : P

    NOW SOME FOTOS PLS!

    PROSET!

    Although I wasn't present as much as I would have liked, I really enjoyed this year's event. I echo the ones before me in congratulating the organisers and apologise for not being present during dismantling.

    Congrats to all the exhibitors and hope and pray that next year's 109 table will be graced by those eagerly anticipated trio of 109's.

    Well done to all cheers

    Welldone to ALL except me as I could not attend ama previous years, except a short stint on Sat afternoon, due to working nights on Thur, Fri & Sund but I still enjoyed my models being taken care of & pampered & especially I did not miss the dismantling that much lol!

    But from what I heard, the LOUSY weather worked in our favour as it was well attended as last year Twisted Evil

    Viva l'SSM cheers

    Well done all.....so good to spend 3 days of absolute bliss with my brothers....very good participation....all sections were very well representd...new faces...the enthusiasm absolutely brilliant in all aspects....the venue is simply brilliant and very well planned....the attendance of the general public was really good....One thing that was really rewarding that the visitors spent a lot of time scutinizing and admiring the models....much was achieved....
    Once again well done to all...but....and a big but...no coffee ...agree with Proximo here lol!

    Great expo....

    Agree with all said. Particularly enjoyed the work space! Managed to get two track runs ready! As a pointer I know it was planned but scrapped due to lack of space it would be nice to see an easel and blank pages for visitors to try their hand at airbrushing! For next year!

    Well done to all!

    This was another excellent and succesful expo. People attending were interesting in the display, not just walking by. Well done to everybody!!

    I came to visit on Sunday.......... and as always the standard of the models is top notch!

    The huge battleship was most impressive! Big things always attract the eye are worth exhibiting.

    I believe that SSM has found a good base to show off their exhibition and the exhibition itself was well displayed and there is great potential still to be unleashed!

    Walking along the display tables and seeing such fine works of art, one can only but feel inspiration...... I have been dormant for a couple of years and the exhibition lit the flame again for me!

    Regards
    Noel

    This is the first exhibition with SSM, and can only say, that we had a very good and a unique display of models - SECOND TO NONE. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    I fully agree with Noel,as the potential of the venue (Malta Maritime Museum) is still to be unleashed. And in my humble opinion, I think that people are now getting used to having a scale model exhibition down at the South of the island. Of course marketing the exhibition is a must, but that is something that can be planned beforehand.

    Ejja Noel, leave the birdies in the cage, and get down to some scale modelling. we would like to see another of your work of art for the next expo.

    A beer with the Malta boys sounds excellent! cheers

    Any idea of dates for your show yet? Need to fit plans around my little boys schooling etc.. (he's only just 5 - but already a modeller!)

    Hi again everyone!

    Any news on show date for 2013 yet?

    We're about to book holiday slot for our trip to Malta and would be great if I could time it around your show - and maybe bring a model, or two?
