Not been to Duxford?  

For the last few years the Nationals have been held at the Imperial War Museum Duxford near Cambridge.  For those unfamiliar with the museum, Duxford houses the larger exhibits of vehicle and aircraft that cannot be displayed at the Imperial War Museum London.  So you have a full-size airfield, a fine collection of vehicles, and a magnificent aircraft collection, including the USAAF's war memorial collection.  

 

Cambridge is well worth a visit if you are in the area, both from the tourist point of view & the abundant shopping facilities, that may help keep less enthusiastic family members happy.  If you are coming and you need accommodation  we advise you to book early.  Cambridge is a very busy tourist city in the summer when the competitions take place.

 

NB: a new hotel has been built next to The Red Lion at Whittlesford http://www.laterooms.com/en/hotel-reservations/219618_holiday-inn-express-cambridge-duxford-m11-j10-whittlesford.aspx

PRIZES

 

World War I Award for 2014

for best WW1 model sponsored and judged by Beds MAFVA.

 

THE JOHN BAUMANN  TROPHY 

John Baumann was for many years the information officer for MAFVA.  Typical of his dedication to the hobby and his generosity, he left a bequest to MAFVA to fund a prize at the annual National competitions. John had an interest in the unusual and obscure so the prize will be awarded to one of the lesser known vehicles entered in the competition.   This will be judged by the London MAFVA group of which John was member.
