South West’s biggest model show heading for Tank Museum in Bovington

AN event in Dorset next month promises ‘everything you need to know’ about scale modelling.

The Tank Museum, in Bovington, will host the South West’s model show on September 23 and 24.

Live workshops and demonstrations, as well as stalls selling the latest modelling kits and accessories are promised, as well as displays of all types of models, including trains, aircraft, boats, science fiction icons, remote-controlled models and of course, tanks.

Workshops will explore techniques and tips on how to build a model tank, and specialist talks with the chance to quiz the experts.

Organisers say there is something for everyone, from novices to expert scale modellers.

Visitors can have a go at Scalextric racing, build a tank with Models for Heroes, and meet Doctor Who villains with the Dalek Charity Squad.

Visitors can also explore The Tank Museum’s immersive exhibitions, including the new Tanks for the Memories exhibition, showcasing how tanks have been portrayed as a cultural icon, including through model making and toys.
