Scale ModelWorld Competition Entries Top 1000

With less than a week to go Scale ModelWorld has already attracted more than 1000 competition entries from across the world. Registrations closed on Saturday, 5th November on what has proved to be one of the largest competition registrations since our 2013 50th Anniversary event.

Final preparations are being made for the show and the real work will start on Friday, 11th November as we set up the exhibition halls and prepare for the thousands of visitors who arrive each year. With nearly 200 traders booked in there is almost nothing related to model-making that you won’t be able to buy.

200 Branch and Special Interest Group displays stretching across three large exhibition halls will add another 4000 models to the display total, meaning that visitors can marvel at more than 5000 completed examples of the scale modelling hobby at its finest.

Scale ModelWorld is once again living up to its reputation as the largest plastic modelling show in the world. Visitors and traders will be arriving from as far afield as Japan, South Korea and Australia, not to mention Canada and the United States, assorted South American countries and of course virtually every nation in Europe. The only continent not represented is Antarctica.
