Wingnut Wings Sign up to Attend Scale ModelWorld 2018
IPMS (UK) is pleased to confirm that Wingnut Wings will be attending Scale ModelWorld 2018 with a major trade presence. Not only will this be a first for the United Kingdom, but it also makes them the farthest-travelled trader ever to attend our event.
Wingnut Wings have developed an enviable reputation in a just a few short years for their range of 1/32 scale First World War aircraft models and have set the benchmark for quality in this area.
Owned by film director Peter Jackson (best known for his Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies), Wingnut Wings is developing an ever-expanding range of models and accessories to compliment them. Their popularity has spread rapidly across the world and it is a huge honour for IPMS (UK) to welcome them to the UK
Wingnut Wings’ decision to attend Scale ModelWorld 2018 is particularly apposite as this year marks both the Centenary of the end of the First World War and of the formation of the Royal Air Force in 1918. Their product range contains many of the iconic aircraft designs from both sides of the conflict, giving modellers the chance to own and build a miniature replica of their favourite aircraft from the era.
Scale ModelWorld takes place on Remembrance Weekend each year and in 2018, our traditional Act of Remembrance on the Sunday will commemorate the exact time, day and month of the end of the war – at 11.00am on Sunday, 11th November 2018.
