2018 Show Listing


Bolton Wanderers Macron Stadium, new venue for the IPMS Bolton show on 28th January 2018

To support the Show Listing produced for Scale Aircraft Modelling, which is out of necessity rather limited, here you will find a complete listing of shows for 2018.

In addition more detailed information, and where available a link, will be provided along with some commentary on the show itself, highlighting its features, etc.

As it will very much be a work in progress, particularly during the first few months of 2018, please keep coming back!  Further if your show is not on here, or you have some details and information you'd like us to share then please do contact us.

We can be contacted either by e-mail: 580Modellers@gmail.com, or mobile - 07841 417680.

The season opener this year from IPMS Bolton is a little later than usual.  Having outgrown their previous venue they have relocated to the home of Bolton Wanderers which has allowed immediate further growth.  Hopefully this will allow it to become THE premier show in the North West, if not the North.
