Plastic Scale Modelling

Many of us enjoyed our younger days making Airfix models. Many of you will also have seen TV programs, such as James May’s “Big Trouble in Model Britain”, to know “the hobby” is still alive and thriving. Airfix are amongst many manufacturers - ranging from major enterprises down to cottage industries - from around the globe that are producing new kits and accessories. Advances in technology and, of course, the internet have had a dramatic impact on the hobby.

Fundamentally though, the hobby remains as relaxing and absorbing as it always was.

The objective of this Group is for interested and like-minded folks to share this pastime. Whether you are a novice or master, the idea will be to share your enthusiasm and knowledge so that all in the Group can develop their skills and get the most from the hobby.

It is proposed that the Group will meet fortnightly for 2-3 hours. Numbers may have to be kept small as meetings will be “hands-on” practical work to the maximum extent possible - particularly if the venue is the organiser’s modelling room! We shall also discuss noteworthy developments in the hobby and forthcoming shows. There will also be visits to museums. Rarely have meetings been short on conversation in my experience!

“Scale Modelling” covers a wide range of subject matter. Broadly though, any subject in the Airfix catalogue (not that we shall be restricting ourselves to Airfix products) and made from plastic will fall within the scope of the Group, but exceptions are anticipated.
