    Hi Everyone,

    Are there any IPMS members here?

    I'm a member of the Wellington branch here in New Zealand. We are the bigest/strongest in the country. :D :cool:

    I model, but not well enough to join any clubs. I love a good model though, and I appreciate the artform.

    Me too ! I just don't have the space to keep plastic models ( I keep dreaming about buying a Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster but where can I display it ? :eek: ? ) - but I love reading about other enthusiasts modelling 'adventures'.

    Yes I was for several years. Thought the quarterly booklet was a waste of time though......

    say how about putting that Lanc/Hali on the ceiling, and of course my British friends you must have a Ju 88G-6 Nachtjäger chasing it.... ;)

    and yes a mossie night fighter chasing the Ju

    Problem with dangling them from the ceiling is - the upper surface gets coated in dust, someone reaches up to flick a feather duster and... crash ! More effective than Schrage Musik :eek:

    ( I remember this happening to an Airfix Stirling bomber when I was about 10 - the mental scars are still with me..... :( )

    Martin :

    I know this feeling all too well. Had a B-24 being chased by a heavy Fw 190. both on my ceiling. Went to clean cob-webs with my mum's broom and I knocked both against the wall....arg, I cried for two days as both were 100 %

    Kiwi, I tried that back in the 1970's and still had dust accumulate inside. My model a/c have passed away long ago when I was scratch building radar sets for my German night fighters as there was nothing available then.

    Do you build dios or free standing models. The problem i have with dios is that some of them are just to big to put in cabinets. The ones i have on show are on top of the bookcase, video cabinets and any other free space i can find. Drives the wife nuts :D Luckly, she goes no where near them with a duster

    I used to build dios, but now I just make free standing models. Just because of that one reason, space!
