ORGANISERS and HISTORY behind HaMeX
The HaMeX events are co-hosted by Mat Irvine; Paul Fitzmaurice
and - occasionally - David Jefferis
For those new to this 'site, the original Hanslope Model Expo show combined a DISPLAY of props and models from Hanslope village resident Mat Irvine, many used during his time at the BBC Visual Effects Department, along with a select KIT SWAP, organised by Paul Fitzmaurice.
For more details on the HaMeX shows themselves, see page for HaMeX
Since then three more shows have been added...
AUTOMODELLISMO had already run for a few years at a different venue, but co-organiser Paul Fitzmaurice adapted it, with great success, to the HaMeX formula.
smallspace was new for 2012 and uses Mat Irvine's original website name as its title.
And new for 2014 is The Model Market, held at the beginning of February, for all those kits, tools and paint you need for your projects in the coming year!
SMALL and SELECT
Hanslope Village Hall is not a large venue, so these events will always be select, and the events run so far, have proved very popular.
