The East Riding of Yorkshire Model Show attracted hundreds of visitors who got to see firsthand some of the finest models from throughout the North of England.

Held at the Driffield Show Ground, the event was hosted by local group Bridlington & Wolds Scale Model Club who also raised money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance on the day.

Highly detailed models on display included, planes, ships, trains, figures, motor bikes, cars and some superb examples of armour.

Tony Beesting from Bridlington who is a former precision engineering and also Chairman of the Bridlington & Wolds Scale Model Club, displayed waterline models of ships from many countries.

Modeller, Steve Reay is part of a new club formed in Hull, Band of Modellers, was also at the event displaying some of his work.

Mr. Reay has been playing with plastic since the 1970s. He said the show was well planed allowing people enough room to both display and browse.

Explaining more about one of his works on display, a STUG 3 AusfG he said;

“The tank is the Dragon Models  STUG 3 AusfG.  The crew is made from a resin set I sourced on Ebay. I  don’t know who made them.”

“As a project the whole thing was built straight out the box, and painted with Vallejo paints. It was then weathered with oils and pastels. In all it took just short of a month to complete.”

The event touched on all aspects with some high class examples of models built from scratch including a remote control replica of P&O Ferry the Pride of Hull.

Youngsters were also given the opportunity to build their own model which they were able to take home with them.

Overall  The East Riding of Yorkshire Model Show was a huge success which was enjoyed by people of all ages.
