Hi Gary
All you need to do is delete the word "Science" from the category that begins with that name so you are left with Fact and Fiction. In that case the bayonet fits into the Fact class. Other clubs name this Category as Fact, Fiction & Miscellaneous as a cover all.

We'll be heading down around lunchtime on the Friday so can help you with set-up in the afternoon Gary.

Who's up for some Saturday dinner/beersies in Cambridge then?

Good plan. Lance and I are staying in Cambridge Sat night and always keen for food/drinks. We may have a surprise guest staying with us from Wellington, if he makes it up as he says he is going to. So the two/three of us will be drinking and eating somewhere.

That reminds me, I was going to ask if anyone wanted to join us for Curry again this year.
Last year a group of us went to a good curry house in Te Awamutu which is about 20 minutes from Cambridge. Apparently there is a nice curry house in the town nearest to Karapiro, personally I prefer the idea or Te Awamutu as it's on my doorstep and I'll be pretty shagged by Saturday evening but whatever suits others.

Can those of you that are coming to the event and are members of the different Model/IPMS clubs please bring some kind of banner or large sign for your clubs.
In order to make our little event seem bigger than it is I want to show that we involve other clubs.
I found out last night that we've just lost 25% from the downstairs rooms to some seminar that they want to run for 30 minutes twice a day so I've got to give up 1/4 of our display area. I'm now thinking of moving the kids modelling area down next to it and anything else noisy that I can think of :evil:
They want us to bring more people through the gates etc and then ruin 6 months of cat herding so that a couple of people get to feel special.
Rant over, it just seems harder and harder to organise this show each year.
Just bring as many completed models as you can, we want display and competition models to fill all the space we have available so as to justify the main hall next year or it's the Nationals in a tent................

I'm very keen on having some form of a dinner/drinks afterwards on Saturday night. Much better to drink with others than by yourself!

So...bit last minute but talked to the management and could probably arrange to come down for the Saturday..

I would be bringing a fair selection:
WW1 Trench/Tank
WW1 German Cruiser
Pair of desert dios, universal carrier/tank gun and pzIII
Opel Blitz garage
T34 Snow scene
St Chamond tank
Possibly Storch Snow Dio if I finish!
Spitfire w blast pen
And a couple of free standing models

And would want to try to get as many in comp categories as possible..

Would be arriving early sat morning and leaving at end of Saturday though..does that work do you think? Would it be okay to turn up and do all this stuff on arrival?

Never been to the show (or entered any comps ever) so don't know anything about how it works, what time can get in, etc etc.

Maybe we should just decide on the day and see where our mood takes us. I liked the curry house in Te A last year and would be happy to do the same this time around but would be happy to dine in Cambridge as well. I'm staying in Cambridge this year but that won't influence my thinking.

I’d vote for Cambridge myself. That way I don’t have to bribe Lance to be designated driver, and, as we discovered last time we stayed there, there are some very good eating/drinking establishments in Cambridge.

Shaun,entering your models online does make it hassle free on the day,just pick up your bag of numbers attach to models with blue tack and place models on the tables.
If you are not happy with your choice of class you have selected it is easy enough to change on the day.

Thanks.

I might, if you dont mind, post a list and what categories I think I should choose and maybe get some feedback here first.

I'm sort of the guy who would be very unhappy to get there and have got my categories wrong :blush:

If we do something I would prefer something soon after AiC finishes for the day, don't want to be going back in forth. So if AiC finishes at 5, we could meet in Cambridge 5:30ish? Or TA after that if TA is decided. I'll be in Hamilton

If I believe that a model has been entered in the wrong category on the day I will change it, so get too concerned about it as we can help you out!

Thanks, Im just a bit paranoid about stuff heh

we were thinking of spending sunday around the area (sort of make a holiday of it).. how does the display work, can I leave the models on the tables and collect them end of sunday, or do they need to be taken out at the end of each day?

Nope the building is fully secured and locked up so leave what you want at the end of each day, we tend to start clearing the tables on the sly at about 3pm on Sunday.
Don't forget we're also looking for as many non competition models as possible to fill the spaces. ;)
Cheers

Is there a time for when models need to be in the display area? Reason I ask last year one of mine was badly damaged due to a late display being set up (well after other models were in place) beside mine would not like some one else to have the same problem this year.

We've been doing this show for well over 10 years, yours was the first time another exhibitor has damaged someone's work.
In light of this I think that we the organisers will be the only ones putting stuff on the tables, I know this doesn't completely negate the possibility of damage but hopefully it will mitigate the risk it slightly.

Any rules on number of entries in a category? I might have 3 that would be dioramas.

Also not totally sure on say the military vehicles category.. if I have a tank on a scenic base with a couple of figures standing by can that be entered as a military vehicle or does it have to be a dio? Is it just up to the entrant?

Sorry Im a noob at this.

The more entries the merrier!

Generally the convention is that if the whole thing is telling a story/ has a narrative, it is a dio.

If it just has a basic crew, then it is entered as the vehicle class.

Note that in the vehicle class (armour, aircraft,etc), the base is normally not taken in to account but may be used to help decide a class winner in the event of two closely contested entries.

Hope that helps with the decisions.

Only one that I'm not sure of is the St-Chamond, but depends if I actually get the figures added, otherwise a tank it is!

1 figure with a single model on a plain base is o.k as the figure is allowed for the purpose of scale. If the 2 figures come with the kit then it's ok as well and can be entered as a "vehicle". If they are additional to the kit and the base is "telling a story" then it's a diorama. We can have a look at it on the day so don't stress!!!

There is no limits on the amount of models that can be entered into a single class - more the better!
