Looks great, Nick!
Where do they get 80k people who are interested in viewing quality models??
Dortmund in Germany has a potential catchment of 250 million people ( or however many people live in Europe ) and they all move around pretty freely . There will be Germans (obviously) , French , Dutch , Belgian, Spanish , Scandanavian , Russian , British etc. etc. attending . I have not been to the show before , but I have been told that there are seven large halls devoted to all things modelling . These include military ,fantasy , railway , remote control models (which have their own hall in which to fly their planes and sail their boats) and anything else that I have forgotten .
80,000 people through the door is the figure for a poor year , in a good years the figure is nearer 120,000 !
Everything I have said is what I have been told , so whether it is accurate I can only confirm after the show . No doubt someone will take their Box Brownie with them and will post some photos here later .
