Links Llaneli say THANK YOU!

The welfare charity in Wales, Links Llaneli asked for some models so that their veterans can try out the hobby.  They have a thriving figure painting club and some of the guys and girls there wanted to only do scale models.  We obliged with a nice selection of armour and aircraft donated by you! 

Plymouth Scale Model Association

There was a fantastic, small scale modelling session held at the Balmain care home in Plymouth.  Run and guided by the chaps from the Plymouth Scale Model Association they showed some veterans how to build some scale models.  A tank, an aircraft and a dinosaur were made.  Along with our ambassador Mark Stonelake, they all reportedly had a great time and we may have even sparked some new model makers into the hobby.

Models for Heroes Poem

Models for Heroes

Ive made a tiny model
But to me its rather huge
My mind is not quite what it was
Bad dreams come by deluge

To escape for just a moment
To see another world
To make that tiny model
To reach a netherworld

So grateful thanks for kindness
Your model helped my day
My journey for those moments
Took my mind far away

Tedworth September sessions 2017

We had two sessions in within a week of each other up at Help for Heroes Tedworth house. Paul and Ozzy were the volunteers this time and they helped brilliantly.  A total of 10 beneficiaries all in all and 10 models made although we did have a problem with a missing sprue from a Tamiya kit!  The kit is second hand so someone could have removed the sprue.  Many kits were made and there was a quiet hush in both sessions where everyone was concentrating and relaxing into the activity.

Andover Mind modeling session

Just got home from attending the model club at the Andover Mind.  I left them some more kits to be getting on with and I have no doubt these guys will devour them and make something beautiful.  So much fun and 2 hours felt like 5 minutes. - Malcolm.
