i cant understand why in the UK most of the shows are held on one day, and Ireland needs two. of course more than two shows would be better and it maybe able to be done on a smaller scale.

i do understand there is a lot of work involved tough so maybe you do need the two

I think in this country we should be grateful for getting models shows of any sort as there doesn't seem to be too many modellers out there... so hats off to all those who put in the effort to organise them. :DX

I can't comment on any of the UK shows, I haven't been to any. I can't really comment on why the IMSS need, or perhaps prefer, two days either. They're a world unto themselves at times.

I just know from experience that we need two in order to properly manage the show. Of course we've only being doing this for a couple of years. Perhaps with a bit more experience we can narrow it down.

As for Collins Barracks, the museum display is really good and well worth seeing. Just don't bring a camera in with you as they won't allow any photography and they're quite strict about it.

I don't know to be honest. There is a lot of stuff in there that would be sensitive to a flash but they could also be trying to protect copyright, they never say.

One thing of interest that they have is The Asgard, the boat used during the Howth gun-running. They've restored it to a fine condition.

The Museum in East Fortune Scotland is like that, Was taking shots using a tripod when a dude came over to me asking if I had a permit, I said what for and he mentions in case I trip over my tripod I need to sign a sheet to exempt them from claim, I said I wont be telling anyone I tripper over my own tripod as I would feel a bit dumb. Anyhow went to sign disclaimer and it was for a non publishing clause not to post anything on the net, Talk about not wanting to promote the museum, Now they had such things as vulcan, concored Buccanners etc, They need to take in a lot of flashes before they crumble to the ground, Probably the same for collins barracks. Anyhow no need to use a flash if you have the proper gear!!
