Model aircraft fans are in for a treat at the British Motor Museum!
Model aircraft enthusiasts are in for a treat when the British Motor Museum hosts the 11th ‘Large Model Aircraft Show’ on Sunday 27 October.
Visitors can see over 100 large static radio controlled model aircraft at the annual indoor show. Organised by the Large Model Association, this popular family event offers visitors the chance to see the models ‘up close’ without the restriction of flight line fencing.
There will also be the opportunity to attend three modelling technique workshops which will be run by Paul Dudley from Kingfisher Aviation, Tony Nijhuis from Tony Nijhuis Designs and Paul Lewis from Composite Scale Kits. The show will also have a large trade area where visitors can buy everything from miniature propellers to small jet engines and pre-assembled models. In addition the cinema will show footage of the planes flying during the show season.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum said “This is a hugely popular show which is enjoyed by so many each year. There is so much to see and do from admiring the range of static models, browsing the trade area to find that perfect airplane project, attending workshops, and speaking to builders and pilots about their projects to get some handy tips and advice.”
The show also coincides with half term so there are plenty of other family friendly activities to enjoy at the same time. These include making rockets, the Black Cat trail, family tours and a Rocket fuelled Science Show. All are included in the entry fee.
Normal entry fees apply giving access to the Museum, Collections Centre and Large Model Aircraft Show. Entry fees are: Adults priced at £14.50, Children priced at £9 (5-16 years) under 5’s are free and a Family ticket is priced at £40.
