March Meeting and model shows

The website hasn't  been properly updated for a while now due to the webmaster being otherwise engaged (Poor excuse you may, justifiably, say) so here is a bumper issue.

The club has attended several shows in the past couple of months including  Milton Keynes (Modelkraft), Huddersfield and Hinckley and here are a few photographs taken at these venues.

 March Meeting

A major feature of the March club meeting on Sunday 20th was the judging of Hospice trophy, or at least those models that had been completed, quite a few members preferred to pay the fine (Thereby increasing the money raised for the Acorns Hospice).

The monthly competition was won by Shaun Bowater with his impressive piece of 1/35 scale armour.

On 31st July there will be a model show in the Griffin Pub, Rugby in aid of Help for Heroes, for more details please go to the dedicated website.
