Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the annual ‘Universal Model Show’ took place at Malbank School & Sixth Form College in Nantwich, writes Jonathan White.

The show was 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; a scale-model competition with different classes; war games demonstrations; fighting robots; a LEGO display; wartime dioramas; movie and science fiction figure displays; and numerous trade stalls.

Star Wars fans were treated to an appearance by the ‘UK Garrison’ costume group –  which included participants dressed as Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, X-Wing pilots, Jawa, Ewoks, Rebel Troopers and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Event Organiser, Steve Morris, said: “We hope all those who attended the 38th annual Universal Model Show enjoyed their day.

“A very special thank you to all who make this event possible; the exhibitors, traders, volunteers and Malbank Sixth Form College.

“The event raised £602.00 for the Help for Heroes charity.”
