Vão existir porque há fabricantes lá, que sabem que os garotos de hoje vão ser seus consumidores de amanhã. Por isso eles dão kits e insumos para os garotos montarem e pedirem para os pais comprarem mais. Aqui nós conseguimos juntar uns kits e insumos por meio de doações de modelistas, mas aí o garoto gosta e quer dar continuidade, vai ter de pedir do exterior e em Dólares. Ou compra dos heróis da resistência que são os lojistas brasileiros, que não por culpa deles, vendem kits caríssimos. Mais fácil voltar pro vídeo game !

The make and paint tables at Old Warden shows are always popular
As well as inspiring modellers across the country with their impressive model displays, the hard working members of IPMS Brampton also provide a much-loved service to visitors at the many Airshow events held at Old Warden throughout the year. Occupying a prominent position at the front of one of the aircraft hangars at this historic airfield, the group administer several modelling tables and encourage visitors young and old to try their hand at building an Airfix model kit, with members always on hand to enthusiastically provide help, advice and encouragement throughout the day. It is fantastic to see so many people enjoying making a model kit and anyone who has attended a Shuttleworth show recently will confirm that Brampton’s make and paint tables are usually fully occupied for most of the day. You are always assured of a warm welcome from the IPMS Brampton team at Old Warden and if it is modelling tips and advice you are looking for, these chaps have all the answers.
Young modeller Thomas O’Connell studies his instruction sheet at Old Warden
The Brampton Scale Model Club and IPMS Brampton have been enthusiastically modelling for around 25 years and as well as boasting some incredibly talented modellers within their ranks, they also encourage and support members of all ages and abilities to have a go at the modelling hobby. Originally meeting once every two weeks, the group became so popular that they have been holding meetings every week for the past 15 years. They currently meet every Wednesday evening from 7.30 at the Old School Hall, Sawtry, near Huntingdon (PE28 5UX) and are always open to new members, or people just wanting to see what the modelling hobby is all about. As one of the most active groups in the UK, the members also run their own model show, which just happens to be the largest one day model show in East Anglia - this year’s event will be taking place on Sunday 24th September at the Burgess Civic Hall, St Ives and you can find full details of this and all the clubs other activities on their website.
