Model airplanes go on display as part of Airfix Weekend

Museum of Lincolnshire Life

The Airfix airplane has long been the preserve of the bedroom hobbyist, but now a new event aims to showcase these delightful models to the general public.

More than 100 models – including the iconic Spitfire – will go on display at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life as part of the Airfix Weekend taking place on 27th and 28th January.

The model planes themselves have been lovingly made by the Lincoln Branch of the International Plastic Modelling UK Society.

“I’m thrilled to welcome back the modelling society for this unique exhibition, which is a joy for all the family. It’s a showcase of magnificent craftsmanship and visitors can enjoy the rest of the museum too,” said Steve Dunk, site manager at Museum of Lincolnshire Life.
