Models for Heroes and Breaking Ground Heritage join forces

Breaking Ground Heritage, based in Taunton, Somerset came to Tedworth House to create a day for their beneficiaries building model tanks of their upcoming project.   To uncover a Mkii tank from WW1.

Beneficiaries were invited to build a Masterbox model kit that fully replicates the details in every way and to enjoy the thrill and relaxation of model making.  The day was a success with 100% positive Feedback.,  everyone got to take their tanks home with them as a momento of the day.

Some tanks were painted brown as per the kit instructions, some were painted the British Racing green colour that its suspected they were originally painted in during WWI.    The day ended with the CEO of BGH vowing to start some modelling making back at HQ in the future as everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the results clearly lifted everyones mood.

RBL to begin modelling

The Royal British Legion in Aylesford started their first modelling session today. It was clear within an hour of the 7 strong session that it was an activity that needed to be made a permanent fixture in the timetable.  Everyone enjoyed themselves, some finished their models and some vowed to return in a few weeks to the next session and finish their models.    We're really proud to be able to provide our service to the Royal British Legion and their beneficiaries.  Lets hope that news spreads and more branches sign up.
