Netley Marsh Steam and Craft  Fair Display  20th to 22nd July 2018


     Area 4 Members were invited to once again set up a display at the three day Annual Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Fair sharing the space in the Model Tent with other local model makers and the Solent Meccano Club.

     Our display consisted of 14 warships from the Royal Navy and US Navy covering the period from WW1 to the present day. The organizers had asked us if we could provide any additional models of other subjects so Ken Winter provided a display of fairground vehicles which attracted a lot of interest, (I had intended to include some aircraft models but due to unexpected circumstances I could not show them!)

      It was very busy with a large number of visitors over the three days a combination of the hot sunny weather, the first weekend of the school holidays and the varied attractions bringing in the crowds.

     We received many compliments on the standard of models and had lots of interest in the making of the models and the history of the ships on display.

     At the end of a very busy event we headed home to clean the dust off the models ready for the next show.

     Members attending were, Dave and Andrea Reith, Ken Winter, Charles Davis And Myself .
