The Model Market will run on Sunday February 2, 2014. That’s good timing, neatly on schedule to stock up on all those new kits you promised yourself for the coming year. And perhaps also to get the tools you need to finish the unbuilt stuff, left over from 2013…

The Model Market is primarily a dealer show, though the Bedford Model Club and New City Model Club will be mounting impressive displays. As with all other HaMeX shows, The Model Market will be held at Hanslope Village Hall, Newport Road, Hanslope, Bucks MK19 7NZ, UK.

Aim to get there bright and early, as The Model Market runs on just the one day from 1000-1600hrs, a timing schedule it will share with other HaMeX shows running at the same site.

If you get hungry, the K-9 Cafe will open for ace bacon sarnies and plenty of coffee.

Kits aplenty, club displays, lots to see and buy, hot grub on hand - what better way for a model maker to spend a winter’s day?!

These nifty creations from the Bedford Model Club (below) ought to whet your appetite for plenty more scale models on display at The Model Market.

To explain The Model Market logo, the new(ish) town of Milton Keynes has a herd of concrete cows at the heart of its shopping zone (below). They were created in 1978 by Canadian artist Liz Leyh, and have achieved iconic status over the years, despite assorted vandalism that has included being repainted in pink, and a zebra-stripe camouflage scheme.
