The sun shone and visitors flocked to the exhibition halls of the 2017 Spalding Model Engineering and Hobby Show. It was gratifying to see so many families present, with the younger generation being introduced to the skills and pleasures of model engineering. We look forward to an equally successful Sunday. Below are photographs of some of the of the great sights enjoyed by visitors on Saturday.
