THE NEW SHOW FROM HaMeX EVENTS - EXPLORING 'THE MEDIA' IN ALL ITS FORMS...

The first was in May 2018 - click here for the full report

Now we are continuing this show for 2019, so...

will be on 5th May 2019 at the usual HaMeX venue, from 10.00am


Remember that this show isn't 'just' film and television, and certainly isn't 'just' science fiction and fantasy - though of course we are not excluded that!

We are looking of modelling subjects - as the logo says, not only Film and TV, but Books, Comics, the Theatre, Video Games, items in the News, and expanding media and publishing even wider - how about images that have appeared on Record & DVD Covers?

And for MEDIA MODELLING 2 we will be emphasising all manner of 'garage kits' -
which certainly provide the source for many 'media models'
More details to follow.

ZZ Top ZZ Top
... examples from record covers - as depicted here by ZZ Top

As with our first show - click here for the full report - this is a model show first and foremost, so we'd like as many clubs to attend as possible.
But this does not prevent individuals, (who work on the Groucho Principle and do not belong to any club), also displaying.
If you can fill one of the usual tables (6 x 2 feet) or the smaller (3 feet square) with a reasonable amount of models by yourself, that's great. If you only want to display the one model be sure and let us know beforehand - info@hamex.co.uk - and we can likely allocate you a combined table

To give everyone even more ideas of what we'd like to be displayed, a reminder of the ideas from the first show web page... Below - a number of examples, the top three have the sort of 'details' alongside that would be nice!

Moonstrke 3rd Rock Cessna-Red Square

The Airfix Westland Lysander is build as from the 1960s BBC TV series Moonstrike.

Here is small cover of the relevant Radio Times to illustrate this, plus an image from the series.

An old Jo-Han 1961 Rambler American built as the one used by the Solomon family in 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Details have been printed out to explain this

This Italeri Cessna kit was issued 'as from a news story' when German Mathias Rust landed it in Moscow's Red Square in 1987.

A report on this is included to explain it - as does the Italeri box itself

Below : yet more ideas that show the wide range of subject-matter you could tackle - from individual models of craft, vehicles and figures, to collections, simple scenes or more intricate dioramas

Yes there are some spaceships and aliens in there, but there's a lot more besides

This wide range is what we want for MEDIA MODELLING

Beatles

Remember that "Popular Beat Combo"?

Maybe you have the original Revell kits still around? (left)

Or the newer set from Polar Lights? (right)

Either would be ideal for
MEDIA MODELLING

Yellow Submarine

 

The Boeing 747 as flown by Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden (left)

 

Scrat and Manny (or maybe Ellie?) from Ice Age (right)

m

The Black Pearl from Pirates of the Caribbean (left)

 

"Have you ever seen a Panther that is Pink?" - yep - here (right)

A touch of Hogwarts from Harry Potter (left)

 

Around the World in 80 Days - the old Adams kit (right)

The Dukes of Hazzard could supply many model ideas, (left),

 

But (right) how about the Grumman Duck (the ITC/Glencoe Kit) built as the star from the movie
Murphy's War

Even radio can give ideas, (left) here's Tony Archer's (rather clean) Little Grey Fergie tractor - the Heller kit - as from The Archers

 

On the other hand, (right) there's a vast amount of ideas with Japanese Robots!

The Minions (left) could create havoc or alternatively, create many options,

 

While (right) Number 6 is still "A Free Man"

(left) A scratchbuilt, 'Greased Lightning', as from Grease, (left). It would of course have also fitted into the previous show, AUTOMODELLISMO

 

And, (right) OK it's SF, but it's not all spaceships...

Nautilus

(left) Why not the theatre - it's all 'the media'? Here's a model with a difference of the Regency Theatre

 

Whereas (right) Wallace & Gromit - and Shawn the Sheep could provide countless ideas

The Finest hours

(left) Not all movie ships fly in space, here's one that floats on the ocean - the Glencoe kit of the US Coast Guard boat as from The Finest Hours

And (right) not all figures are from Star Trek or Alien... though sometimes The Three Stooges seemed pretty alien...

Three Stooges

OK, (left) science fiction, but also a 'car ' - the Space Chariot from Lost in Space

 

Whereas (right) this one was all set 'on Earth' but with 'SF elements' - Uncle Martin' and his spaceship from
My Favorite Martian

My Favorite Martian

(left) Not 'science fiction' but 'science fact' - the Apollo craft - as from the movie Apollo 13, (and of course - let us not forget - real life...)

(right) Mixing 'fact' and 'fiction' the underwater guise of the Lotus Elite from the Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me

OK it's Star Trek (left) but - with a nod to the previous show Extreme Weathering
so here's the Enterprise with, ahem, 'a bit of weathering'

While (right) - how about combing 'media' - here Wallace & Gromit - fly Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (sort of...)

Blakes 7

Yes (left) there will always be spaceships in science fiction - and 2018 was the 40th anniversary of Blake's 7

 

But (right) these take ideas of planes and cars found in the W.E.Johns' Biggles books

Biggles

MEDIA MODELLING replaces two of our previous shows - AUTOMODELLISMO and Extreme Weathering - though - as indicated above - there could be elements of both in MEDIA MODELLING

But - and very important - in no way does it 'replace' our major 'space, science fiction and fantasy' show smallspace
The next one, smallspace 8, is 21st July, 2019 - the 50th anniversary of first steps on the Moon for Apollo 11

And you can win your own
MEDIA MODELLING Oscar
for the best model -
whether it be individual, collection or diorama

(Though not sure what form it will take in 2019?)
