Looking for fellow modellers in England. Where are the best model shows and swap meets?

Hello mate! I'm based in the sumptuous environs of the Medway Towns, Kent.

Where are the best model shows and swap meets?


The only thing I'm aware of at all is IPMS with their IPMS Nationals every year. I used to belong to an IPMS group a few years ago and back then, if you weren't building Messerschmitts with photo etch seat buckles, forget it!

(Was I annoyed that my flawless Chevy SS454 didn't even get 3rd place on competetion night? Nahhh.... not much)

Do any of you have a Hobbycraft store nearby? I found one in Maidstone and it's tremendous - I can always find something useful in there, from bead wire to suede-effect paint. Worth a look if you have time to kill.
