Wicksteed at War 2017
This year we had a display are inside the main arena to incorporate some static models into a historic theme of 'The Battle of Denmark Strait' or more famously Hood vs Bismarck. With the static display showing the main protagonists of the battle, in the main display tent by the lake side we had the bigger 1/96 scale models of HMS Rodney and HMS King George V built by Ron and Sheila Kingdon. Also on display were the WW1 section by Nick Brown and Tony Newstead, whilst Steve Brown showed his rather large submarine HMS X-1 and the even bigger gunboat HMS Gnat. Dennys Warren showed some of the smaller WW2 vessels and Russell Tonkin showed his tiny RAF Pinnace and Royal Navy TBD. A very enjoyable event that we look forward to next year.
