Scaling up visitors with a model show

NINE modelling clubs attended Tangmere Military Aviation Museum on Saturday to exhibit their work.


The museum, in collaboration with the Tangmere Sector Modellers Club, held a scale model show including three modelling trade stands.


Derek Hersey, treasurer and show organiser for Hailsham and District Scale Model Club, said: “Our club were very pleased to help support Tangmere Sector Modellers, and Tangmere Museum on their first joint model show.


“As far as we could see, the event went very well and all our club members had a thoroughly enjoyable day.


“The museum is well worth a visit on its own, in fact, we are planning a club visit in the foreseeable future. Our club members were able to answer a lot of questions from the general public.”


David Coxon, deputy director at the museum said: “The museum was very pleased with the successful scale model show jointly run with our local model club, the Tangmere Sector Modellers.


“Nine other clubs participated and over 550 visitors enjoyed the event.”
