I didn't get to much of the show today, with commitments on bass in church and a stern injunction from the Domestic Authority to be back in time for lunch after that.
The show was predominantly (unsurprisingly, given the name) hosting military and other scale modellers, but as well as us there were a couple of railway layouts and a stall from our local railway modelling shop, Trains4U (who interestingly have now started stocking Games Workshop). Conversely, I know a lot of folks at the club have started using them as a source of scenic materials and plasticard, given that buying (say) Javis static grass is under <£2 for what GW or Army Painter would charge you at least double.
On which topic, right next to our stand were the folks from Modelling Tools, with a range of paints, and weathering washes I'd never seen before - AK. Some fascinating stuff there (including palette wash/weathering sets for 'green' tanks and a 'tracks and wheels' set, which I think I might dip (as it were) my toe into and investigate further, given the number of tanks I have to paint.
