Militaire - Exhibitors in the Sports Hall (1)

The annual South Cheshire Militaire universal model show thrilled the crowds at Malbank School in Nantwich, writes Jonathan White.

The show is organised by the South Cheshire Military Modelling Club.

It included scale-model Army, Navy and Air Force club displays; scale-model railway club displays and demonstrations; scale-model car & motorbike displays; remote-control truck and tank demonstrations; military weaponry displays; a military badge display; and a scale-model competition with different classes.

There were also war games demonstrations; fighting robots; a LEGO display; wartime dioramas; movie and science fiction figure displays; numerous trade stalls; real military vehicles and various people in costume from the military, movies and sci-fi.

Star Wars fans were treated to an appearance by the UK Garrison costume group which included participants dressed as Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Stormtroopers, a Commander and X-Wing pilots.
