Today was the first day of the 2015 Spalding Model Engineering and Hobby Show and what a great day it was! Visitors thronged the three halls and outside attractions at the Events Centre and were thrilled and impressed by the displays and demonstrations on offer. Model railways of every conceivable gauge, boats, cars, aircraft, ships, machinery, engines and much more was set out to entrance the enthusiast and inspire the beginner.
Our new indoor flying area featuring aircraft, helicopters and drones was a big attraction and the skill of the pilots was impressive. Shoppers were treated to a road run by a dozen or so miniature traction engines and vehicles that wound their way through the gardens. All of this is takes place again, tomorrow, Sunday 26th April, starting at 9.30am, so if you missed us today be sure to catch us on Sunday. Here are some photos from today (click to enlarge).
