SMN report:
Automodellismo is the only UK show specializing in model cars, and 2012 sees the second day-event held at Hanslope Village Hall, north of Milton Keynes, Bucks. Automodellismo 2012 is run by SMN Model-Meister Mat Irvine, and Auto-Ace Paul Fitzmaurice of little-cars. Mark your diary now, as the show runs for just one day only, Sunday April 15, 2012.

Tools for modelmakers
Mat and Paul will be at the show with various displays, and a galaxy of modelmaking tools and accessories, plus heaps of kits for sale. 

Club displays
Who’s showing stuff at Automodellismo 2012? There’ll be displays from the Milton Keynes Scale Model Club and the Watford Scale Model Club. The UK Car and Motorcycle SIG (Special Interest Group) will be showing too, as will the websites ‘Britmodeller’ and ‘Locate and Cement’. The intriguing ‘Beyond the Box’ SIG will be there too, featuring Wallace and Gromit models. 

Winning models
Last year’s winning model duo, Ian and Rod Knott, will be there with their amazing Model Car Garage. You’ll be able to buy model cars from Vince Brown, from Models for Sale, and also from the huge collection of rare and desirable stuff from co-organiser Mat Irvine.

Scale Car Modelling book
Mat will also display his hefty hardcopy model car book Scale Car Modelling. Many models built especially for the book will be on Automodellismo 2012 display. 

Mega-Mustang on show
As well as little cars, there’ll be some big cars to make you drool. Parked up around the hall should be plenty of tasty sets of wheels including a racing Morgan, classic convertible BMW, Lotus Elan S2, and if you missed it last time around, the 2009 Roushcharged Mustang, which is one big tasty motor - IWOOT.
