THE Tank Museum will be hosting a scale model show this month.

Surrounded by real tanks and armoured vehicles, scale modellers will be showcasing their creations and sharing their hints and tips for creating the perfect models.

Events manager Rosanna Dean said: “For generations, people have made model kits and been inspired to visit The Tank Museum to see the real thing. This event combines two great passions; modelling and military history.”

For those inspired by the display, there will also be the opportunity to purchase kits and accessories."

Visitors will have the chance to see models from across the spectrum, including boats, planes, cars, and of course, tanks.

Various talks on modelling and the tanks themselves will be on offer.

There will also be live displays of remote control models, including remote control aeroplanes.

The event is scheduled for September 28/29.
