MODELLING fans are expected to descend on the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford on Sunday (April 6) for the annual Shropshire Scale Modellers' Show

Nestled among a world-class collection of aircraft and military vehicles will be thousands of intricately-detailed models, displayed alongside many of the real aircraft.

As one of the region's largest modelling events, everything any dedicated modeller could ever want or need, will be on sale at the one-day show.

More than 40 traders, including Airfix, will be selling a range of modelling materials and kits to suit modellers of all abilities.

More than 80 modelling clubs from across the UK will be exhibiting their pint-sized models, plus hundreds of cars, bikes, trucks and science fiction items including Dr Who and Star Wars.

Event organiser, Gary Stevens Secretary of the Shropshire Scale Modellers and The Telford Branch of The International Plastic Modellers Society, said: "The show will feature many other models from exhibitors and traders who travel from all over the country to be with us.

"With the show getting bigger every year it really is a great family day out. I am particularly pleased to have on board a group of modellers from Germany who have taken time to come over and display their models, giving the show a truly international feel."

To make reaching the Museum even easier, organisers have introduced a free park and ride for the day to cope with the additional visitors.

The show will be open to the public from 10am until 4pm and entry to the event is free of charge. For further information, please call the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford on 01902 376200 or visit the Museum website at www.rafmu seum.org.
