Shropshire Model Show, RAF Museum, Cosford


 At tomorrow's Shropshire Model Show at the RAF Museum, Cosford we will have some

 FREE KITS 

to give away on our stand, but please be aware that most have something wrong with them; e.g. missing parts/decals or have been started. Some of our members have been clearing out their stashes and would like to make these kits available free to other modelers who can make use of them rather than binning them.

All that we ask is that is that, in return, you consider making a donation to the charity that we are supporting this year:


The appeal's target is raise £2M to equip four ambulances with the latest life support equipment.


So please come along and take look, our club display will situated in the Cold War Hall under the nose of the Handley Page Hastings.

We look forward to meeting friends old and new.

We are making some changes to our membership fees geared towards making membership fairer for casual attendees or members who can't attend many meetings
If you attend 5 meetings or less, then you won't be required to pay the full £20 annual cost. Instead you can be an Associate Member, which is priced at £3.50 per meeting you attend up.
Attending more than 5 meetings will require the full £20 annual membership fee, mostly because you are actually better off paying for a full membership by then.
Join us this coming Sunday 19th March at Longbridge Methodist Church, starting at 3:30pm for a bumper meeting. March's meeting sees the judging for our annual charity competition; the Bill Nichols Charity Trophy, in addition to our usual competition table.
