We had a good number of visitors and a lot of parents and children participating in the model building where,for a small fee they receive an airfix model kit ( paints and glue etc provided on the build tables)

 

.As well as exhibiting we also lent a hand with the build projects if required .

Members attending were , Dave and Andrea Reith ,Geoff Young ,Alan Gamblin, Alan Hall, John Hawley and Myself.

Our next event will also be at the D Day Story on Saturday 26th March  when we will be putting on a large display of our models in the event hall .
