This is the subject of the new Airfix 1/48 scale model now available.

  

 

Pembrokeshire based scale model making club.

We are a group of like minded individuals who model in

 various mediums with plastic being the most popular.

Aircraft, ships, vehicles, figures and dioramas.

A common theme that dominates is recreating the many subjects from Pembrokeshire's rich history - keeping those memories and stories alive.

 

Welcome

 

Who are we? 

 

The members of this independent club are a wide ranging group of individuals with diverse backgrounds, who wish to share their experiences and skills with each other.

 

At present, as well as constructing models for ourselves, we make models for display in various historical establishments.

 

Commissions can be undertaken for the construction of models by members of the club. Costs will be dependant on the level of work involved. Current projects include work for Cotswold and Worcestershire based organisations as well as local here in Pembrokeshire.

 

We meet regularly on a very informal basis. New participants are welcomed at anytime of any standard. Those with no modelling skills are more than welcome if they would like to become familiarised with the art.

 

 

Where to find us?

 

All of our members are based around the Cleddau Estuary in the County of Pembrokeshire, West Wales.

 

Meetings are usually held in Pembroke.

The following is a great idea from Peter Mitchell:
 
Aerials are often flimsy under tension from wires, particularly when in scales such as 1/24. One solution - modifying a plastic knitting needle and inserting into the fuselage fixing the bottom of the needle into the lower fuselage body. This gives rigidity to the aerial - taking the strain!
 
Pic 1.  The original aerial profile being copied by filing to the same shape as the original.
 
 
Pic 2. The needle is inserted into the fuselage - yet to be trimmed!
 
 
Pic 3. The completed job.
 
 
Plastic knitting needles are cheap to source from charity shops - or a partners (or own!!) stash.

It looks as if Airfix are moving the goal posts at both the entry level for model makers/ kit buyers and at the very top. This really is as good as it gets! The target price is 99.99.
