Hi modellers! Euro Militaire has finished for the weekend and gee it was a fun event! Rain could not even ruin a “Taste of Tuscany” (Thanks Pietro) held by Pegaso outside on the outside seaside forecourt interrupted by typically British weather. Inside the halls were warm though, with the combined heat of thousands of modellers and collectors, vendors, contestants and judges went about celebrating the most prestigious modelling event in the world.
Euro Militaire was held this weekend just passed. For all of you who may have missed it, we have some great pictures and some of the stories of the people behind the show and the models on parade – starting today I aim to bring you a batch of pictures of the models in the contest and the faces young and old of some of the people who attended.
Osprey Publishing was of course represented, with an excellent stand packed with some great titles and a few staffers ready for a chat on all things Osprey and model related (and some things off topic too!) It was really interesting to talk to the staff about their experiences at Osprey and the books they have worked on and to get some knowledge on the day to day operations and behind the scenes info on the Osprey world. if you are at a modelling show in the future please do pop in to have a chat to the guys there, and just maybe have a look at some of the books they have on sale as well! There will be more galleries this week with figures, dioramas, people and oddities from the Euro Militaire on the Modelling News - Feast your eyes on some of the pics by clicking this link
