    The knowledge

    It’s what we all want, but it can’t be bought – knowledge.

    Simply put, there were approximately 200 people at FigureWorld last year, one or two with fifty years or more in the hobby, some with as little as one or two years or less.

    If you average it out at 10 years of modelling experience per person though, that’s two thousand years of knowledge ( O.K. some might say you could get that amount from Rob Lane alone ).

    Somewhere in there, there’s got to be that little fact, that small piece of something that you can’t quite figure out, that could be solved for you simply by talking to someone.

    Because that’s what FigureWorld is all about – getting modellers together, discussing projects and model related problems, and hopefully using that vast store of knowledge to help each other get the finish we hope for on the latest model.

    It’s all very well seeing photographs on the ‘net” or via e-mail, but actually holding a piece and being able to turn it around and see properly the effects that have been rendered, or alternatively be able to describe a problem to someone verbally rather than long-winded text based conversations; well, you just can’t beat being with other modellers in real time in the flesh.

    Better still, on the Sunday, there’s the Paintathon where people can actually show you how things are done, or you can show them exactly how you produce what you’ve done.

    So there you go, “Reason Number Six” for returning to FigureWorld in 2012 - because two hundred ( or more ) minds are better than one.

    The show is being held on Saturday the 7th of July 2012 at Oundle School, Oundle, Near Peterborough. PE8 4GH.

    Opening times for the Saturday will be 9:30am until 16:30pm.
    And don’t forget the Paintathon on the Sunday: - 9:30am until 14:30pm
