A lot of good news.
This week, we had a very effective meeting with the management of the Museum. We received transparent and in deep information as well as simple and incentive guidelines for our future actions and the team is highly motivated.
Some renovations are already in progress in the Tanks court and some vehicles are currently housed in the Air & Space Hall. There are interesting additions like Minerva jeeps (scale models of this car were described a few weeks ago in the last IPMS newspapers). The reaction of some visitors to this “mixture” is positive.
The Museum (not only the Air & Space Hall) will house important events in 2009, one of these exhibitions will be linked the celebrations of comic strips in Brussels.
More news will come about the renovations but what is sure is the will of transparence, the constructive and positive approach and strong rewarding feelings of empowerment for the volunteers.
On the restoration scene, the Tipsy trainer is now out of the workshop almost ready for final assembly. The Renard R-31 is speeding up with the wings under construction at fast speed at the Etablissements Poncelet workshop.
The first phase of the education display is nearly completed and will be soon moved to be accessible to the public.
Please note in the webupdates the major update at the' bamrs website
find hereafter a lot of masterpieces produced by our friend André Hiernaux. A
first set of his drawings are now printed and we hope will be soon available at
the shop. We also include pictures of the incredible 1/48th Spitfire
XIV scale model discovered by Eric.
Good news : New “aircraft build in Belgium” articles by JP Decocq are also in the tube for the coming weeks. The last "Fana de l'aeronautique" describes the renovations in Le Bourget.
Another good news : The Lysander of the Museum is on the final stage of the restoration and should be ready during the Summer.
Straigth in the wall : In the last "Flypast", the transfert of a Fouga From Vissenaken to Lelystad was commented. According to the journalist, the aircraft was described as to be used as "spare parts" for the flying Fouga based in the Dutch Museum. Both Museums (Brussels and Lelystad) contracdited this rumor. The Belgian Fouga is on long term loan for display.
We also discovered some nice videos, specially one about the Mirage F-1's operated by the Voltige Victor. The F-1 allocated to the Museum flow with this aerobatic team. Also included is a link to Europe Demobbed, a fantastic website inventorying many aircraft preserved in Europe (including Belgium).
not least, the future events, with the announcement of the IPMS Antwerp Flanders Modelling Festival (March 9), certainly one the best
(if not the best) scale model exhibition in this country.
We will be present in cooperation with the Museum at the 100th Birthday of the arrival of the tramway in Stockel (Woluwé St Pierre) with a display on the Olieslagers Bleriot
Hoping to see you soon
