A local modeling club from Hanwell has been invited to showcase their work to the world at a prestigious London Model Engineering Exhibition next year.

The Hanwell & District Model Society will be displaying their boats and ships at the London Model Engineering Exhibition, the South’s Largest Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition.

The show which is held at Alexandra Palace in London from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd January, attracts over 15,000 model enthusiasts as well as the top international experts.

Henry Hubble from Hanwell & District Model Society commented: “We are delighted to be showcasing our passion to visitors from all over the UK. It is wonderful to see so many people supporting the world of modelling and it is great to be able to prove that a local club from Hanwell can be so highly regarded. Our members come from all over the Hanwell area and it is a great way to meet people who are passionate about the same things you are.”

It’s not just boats and ships that will be on display at Alexandra Palace early next year, the exhibition blends the full spectrum of modelling from the traditional model engineering, steam locomotives and traction engines through to the more modern gadgets and boys toys including tanks, boats, aeroplanes and helicopters!

Visitors can travel between the show’s different zones, trying the hands-on activities and watching technical demonstrations designed to engage with young people and adults and spark a passion for a hobby that can last a lifetime.

Exhibition Manager, Avril Spence, commented: “We are delighted to be holding our 16th London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace. 2012 is set to showcase an outstanding array of talent that not only celebrates the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics but also commemorates the talent of British modellers throughout the years with our Great Modelling Exhibition Competition.”
