This year Telford was a very valuable trip, a great show, nice people and a number of recognitions for my works! Thanks to the IPMS Germany for the nice special price for my EC-135!
Some impressions of the show and the trip of Hauke, Holger, Lutz and myself you will find in the following gallery.
Last weekend I started with the wooden framework for the Enterprise diorama. Therefore, I already cut main parts for the island an the flight deck. Additionally, I began working on the first P-25 fire fighting truck. See the complete "Project E72" here.
Already a few weeks ago I've visited together with my girlfriend the Royal Fleet Air Arm Museum at the RNAS Yeovilton which is located in the south of England more or less between Stonehenge and Glastonbury. So, if you are around take a half day to visit this museum. All in all, the museum was relatively dark which means that my pictures unfortunately a bit blurry. Here is the Website.
Around to weeks ago, I've started a new long-term project. Because of the size and extend of work I gave it a own name. Discover what is beyond "Project E72". You will find all progressions in the workbench.
Now, a few days after the show many pictures appear here and there. Thanks to the guys from IG-Waterline and especially to Lars and Steffi for sharing a lot of pictures. You will find all of them here.
Whereas these galleries are relatively focused on ships you will find more pictures at Modellversium.
As you can see just around this post JTmodelworks has a new shape and finally a logo as well. Long time I tested different offered designs of my hosting provider Jimdo but without an idea to really give it a custom layout or identity. Now, after the first two years of presence I had an assenting idea for a logo which I really like in the end. After that, I decided to adjust the old greyish colors of my site to a suitable design. I hope you will like it!
For a long time it was very quiet but. Sorry for that! Even if my last post is from christmas I was not inactive since.
Last weekend I visited the Euro Model Expo 2016 in Lingen-Germany which this year was organised in a nice new location and in a much bigger style than the years before in Heiden. This model show was definitely a travel worth it and offered a wide range of directions in plastic modelling and scales in an absolutely admirable quality. The number of stands were roughly distributed in one half of dealers and another one of exhibiting clubs. So, the show had attractive offers for everyone. Especially, the contest area invited to spend some time to gaze at many outstanding models. By the way, I also enrolled some of my latest works and won awards with three models in the end:
At the event I also presented other models together with my friends of the IG-Waterline/Modellmarine and MBC Koblenz. Others from my home club came over for visits. All of them, concluded that our team will be on board again with an own stand next year. So far, many thanks to the EME organisators for an awesome event and also thanks to the guys of the IG-Waterline for a convivial evening. I would say, see you next year guys.

All of you a merry Christmas and a happy new year 2017!! Stay healthy. I hope your wishes and project ideas become true. Happy modelling!
