Hey all
As some of you may know Armistice in Cambridge the largest military event on the North Island , it happens every year in November.
The events are getting bigger and better every year and this year is no different.
So far we can confirm displays from the following aircraft:

Avenger 'Plonky'
P-40N ZK-CAG
Mustang ZK-TAF

There's a whole bunch of others we're working on and should be coming
L-4 Grasshopper
Tiger Moth
Dakota
Either a Pitts or Ryan
Plus probably two Titan Mustangs

The Dakota and P-40 will be offering rides to those who bring their wallets, not sure about the costs right now more info to come.

I've recently become a full committee member on the Armistice in Cambridge "board" and as such I've been given the reigns to the modelling and Museum displays in the Marquees, this is where you guys come in. Previously the model shows and competitions were run by the Waikato Scale Model Club but as they have outgrown the resources of our club the Armistice in Cambridge (AiC) committee has taken over organising things and will be providing resources etc.
So what I want to know is how many clubs would like to be given their own space to display and be part of the weekend's events. If we get enough interest then we would be looking at a competition for the best turned out organisation/club with a prize for the best display etc, this could be members dressed in period gear or maybe a themed display. It's only limited by the imagination.
So if you are a member of a club, have a private collection of some sorts, it doesn't have to be a model collection it could be a collection of militaria or something else just let me know. by emailing me at Part of the message is hidden for the guests. Please log in or register to see it. sending me a PM here or replying to this post. I've got a big area to fill and it could be good for your club or organisation as the event has people from all over NZ and beyond attending.
Displays confirmed so far are:

Waikato Scale Model Club
Manawatu Model Club
Auckland Model Club
Bay Hobbies
MOTAT

More information will be posted as and when I know more or you can keep an eye on the site armisticeincambridge.co.nz/ or the facebook page www.facebook.com/ArmisticeinCambridge

Wish I could make it to this event. It'd be an awesome time I'm sure. Need some pic's posted or a vid tour of the venue, models etc
Along way to travel and expensive too.
Maybe when I make it back home in a few years, eh Gary and Dave?

Any thoughts on approaching Brett Green and Hyperscale to cover the event? He has done the Wellington IMPs in the past. After all there are a number of one to one scale "models" at the event that could be included.

That's a really good idea actually, I'll send him an email and see, unless someone knows him better than me (which is zero) and can point him this/my way?

I think there is a you tube clip showing the Wellington show or it appeared on the hyperscale site so perhaps an approach via hyper scale or a contact from Wellington IPMs?Certainly plenty to fim during the two days and so far more and more to see each year. His coverage of the Melbourne shows certainly has good ideas.
This is the coverage from Wellington;
