Museum’s Bigger and Better Model Show

May, 2019

On Saturday May 4th the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum and its associated scale model club, Tangmere Sector Modellers IPMS, held a second model show at the Museum. It proved to be a great success with twenty clubs and four traders taking part which required the Museum to utilise all the Museum halls and hangars to accommodate them.

The show opened its doors at 10 o’clock and during the day over 500 visitors were able to marvel at the intricate detail of the fantastic models and of the skills involved in making them.

Prizes were awarded for different categories with Phil Cowley, a member of the Tangmere Sector Modellers, winning the Gold medal in the civilian vehicle category and the award of ‘Champion of the Show’.
