The list for traders booked so far for Scale ModelWorld 2017 is now on the site at http://ipmsuk.org/ipms-scale-modelworld/traders-at-scale-modelworld/
Because I seem to be getting a lot of emails from people worried about the risk assessments I have decided to issue a generic form which can be edited to suit.
As it stands it covers all the basics and just needs a Branch or SIG name adding along with a date.
If your Branch or SIG has any extra risks that you feel should be mentioned then they can be added at the end of the form.
Please note it is a Branch or SIG responsibility to perform a proper risk assessment; simply “tick boxing” the template form is not sufficient.
The form is on the Scale ModelWorld Forms page or can be downloaded directly from here
This year’s new additions to the Scale ModelWorld competition trophy list include some interesting items, and one which is for this year only.
First, we have the special trophy that will only be awarded this year:
ROBERT S. HOPKINS III AWARD
Awarded for the best model of any variant of a Boeing KC-135
This is to coincide with author Robert S Watkins III’s launch of his new book on the KC 135. He will be at ScaleModel World this year signing copies as well as sponsoring the new award.
Other new trophies for this year are:
REME MUSEUM TROPHY
Awarded to the best Military Recovery Repair or Engineering Vehicle or diorama
This is an award from the REME museum and hopefully will be an annual award. I believe this trophy will be worth winning this year and in future years. It is also good to see an AFV trophy.
INSIDE THE ARMOUR PUBLICATIONS AWARD
Awarded for the best Armoured model in any scale
Inside the Armour have again made great efforts to support the competition with this award, and they have decided to make their award this year to cover a broader base within the Armour categories.
SHIP MODELLER MAGAZINE AWARD
Awarded to the best Ship Model in any scale
It is great to see an award for ship building competitors back this year, and is to support the newly-realised ship modelling magazine from Inside the Armour Publications.
