It's not necessary. Not so many tourists in May to have such problem.

Cabin baggage and excpect the surprised look when they will check it  8)

At least it will not be thrown with your luggage in the plane .

Check the regulation for the cabin Luggage as it changes with each company and they can sometimes be pricky

Definitely choose the cabin baggage. In our case the airline company allowed one carry-on bag 56cm x 45cm x 25cm not exceed 8kg and one personal item (handbag or thin laptop case). I put my miniatures in a miniature-case with foam frames and I was holding it like a laptop bag.

Have done Historicon from the UK twice and IWC this year using this approach. If you can manage to add a tray to unpack your army onto even better.
