Announcement

ModelKraft 2017

PRESS RELEASE!

The world in miniature comes to Milton Keynes

Come along to Stantonbury Leisure Centre on Sunday 23rd April 2017 for an event to bring back your childhood memories.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of aircraft of all periods from the birth of aviation to science fiction, cars of all types, tanks and battle re-enactments from medieval to ultra modern, ships of every era, figures and tableau, and loads of other stuff to buy or stare at in amazement will be on show in Stantonbury Leisure Centre, Milton Keynes, MK14 6BN on Sunday 23rd April 2017 from 10am to 4pm; when the Leisure Centre will be magically transformed into a fairyland of unbelievable scale miniatures of all the subjects above and many more.

Where else can the visitor see model aeroplanes so small that they will fit into a matchbox, others with details so fine that they can imagine them taking to the air? Military dioramas so lifelike that they can smell the explosives and see the sweat on the soldiers' backs.

ModelKraft brings together, for one day only, nearly 100 Model Clubs and Traders, showcasing many thousands of the best models as well as suppliers of kits, accessories and tools for the modeller.

ModelKraft has become well known for holding a well respected model competition. Modellers of all skill levels are invited to bring their models along and enter them. There are classes to cover all model types; with special classes for modellers aged under 16

Due to the current economic situation, entry prices have been kept as low as possible, with entry at just £5 for adults and £2 for senior citizens. Children under the age of 16 can visit the show for free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.

Milton Keynes Scale Model Club is one of the UK 's premier model clubs with members of all abilities. their goal is to foster the hobby of model making and to try to encourage people to take up the hobby, or perhaps return to the hobby they enjoyed earlier in life.

Like most hobbyists, the members are all amateurs, holding down jobs and raising families, and recognise that leisure time cannot be wasted. They are, however, keen to assist fellow modellers of all skill levels in finding what is on offer, where to find it and how sometimes simple steps can improve their model skills. For information about the club and the show please visit the club website at www.mksmc.co.uk , or contact the club secretary by email timupsonsmith@live.co.uk .

The club welcomes new members at their monthly meetings at the Cranfield University Social club on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 8pm.

Welcome to the new look website of
Milton Keynes Scale Model Club

Firstly, I would like to thank Derek and Mick on behalf of the club, for their hard work and dedication in running the club's website over the last twelve years and a great job they have done with it. I am glad to have been given the chance to step into their shoes and take over looking after the website.

The website is due for an update and as such in May 2015 their will be change in format to make it easier for yourselves and me to keep this website as upto date as possible.

As this is an ongoing development, pages will be updated and reformatted over the next few months with new items added. The members models pages are being brought up to date and expanded with new models from the clubs membership. But in general, the website has the same layout and areas as the former site.

So enjoy yourself whilst you are looking around the website and let your friends know about our website.

About The Club

Milton Keynes Scale Model Club is one of the countries top scale plastic modelling clubs, with members from Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas including Newport Pagnell, Dunstable and Luton.

Our members build all types of models. The current types include aircraft, armour, ships, figures, cars and science fiction.

One of the strengths of the club is the willingness of all the members to share their knowledge and experience with others. We aim to help others improve their models and encourage the newcomer or old hand. We can show you how to make it, paint it , finish it, weather it and display it. In short, you are sure to come away from every meeting of the Milton Keynes Scale Model Club having learnt something new.

Whether you regard modelling as a pastime, making no more than a couple of models a year, a young modeller keen to get more information, or you have years of experience but always worked alone, the Milton Keynes Scale Model Club has something to offer.

Meetings are held on a monthly basis, on the fourth Wednesday in every month (except December, when it is on the third Wednesday) at the Cranfield Campus Social Club, Wharley End, Cranfield, Bedford, MK43 0AL, close to junctions 13 and 14 of the M1. Meetings start at about 7:30pm.
