    The Model Engineering Showcase will be an exciting event bringing together members of Cornwall’s varied and diverse modelling community and providing an exclusive spectacle for visitors to the Museum. Come along and see the full spectrum of model engineering, from steam locomotives and model boat building through to the more modern gadgets including aeroplanes and helicopters. There is an action-packed programme planned with exhibits from over 15 clubs and societies who will be present displaying their work. In total nearly 200 models will be on display. There will also be a range of modelling activities on offer for visitors including plastic kit make and take sessions and the popular museum scrapheap challenge. This is a great day out for all the family, one the children will love with all the working models. If you are interested in modelling yourself or want to rekindle your childhood memories, you will find something amongst the many diverse types of modelling on display to admire. If you are not already a modeller hopefully the exhibition will fire your imagination to build something yourself and enjoy one of these satisfying hobbies.

It presents a golden opportunity for anyone of any age who has the slightest hint of an interest in model engineering to learn what is happening in Cornwall all the year round, put the date in your diary now” said Pat Howard of NMMC Modellers Unit.

  • Recent Event Reviews

    • Guildford 'O' Gauge Group open day
      By paftrain,
         For some unknown reason it has appeared on the wrong day! It should read 7th April NOT 9th. Could mods please correct this?
    • The 6th Chris Kedgeley Memorial Skills Day
      By NorthHighlander,
         An excellent day. I was invited late to attend as a demonstrator and I didn’t get much chance to look around which is a very positive thing. I took along one board from Tregaron Upper plus the fiddle yard. The TU board is 41 years old and at the end of the day I ran the first loco on it EVER! Thanks to Jim’s Summers, Mackenzie and Pairman and Richard Chown for helping me. Got home at midnight 50 and crashed out on Sunday!
    • Model Rail Scotland 2019
      By cessfordalan,
         I cannot comment on the Glasgow show as I do not fly to Glasgow until Thursday morning, but If it is anything like the last one it should be great. Living as I do, through choice;is  in the Western Isles it is also a chance to mingle with a friendly like minded crowd and do some serious modelling shopping as the nearest model shop is a two and a half hour ferry crossing plus a sixty mile coach journey in each direction, so a fabulous weekend is planned

    • Monmouth Model Railway show
      By Phil Bullock,
         A very friendly show - usually try to get to this one. Some excellent layouts and wider modelling interest too - a couple of local traders to support and an excellent book sale stall at which I picked up a couple of gems. All in all well worth a few hours on a Sunday

    • Gauge O guild Spring Show Kettering
