George Robins Trophy
A Big well done to Paul goldfarb for winning this years George Robins Trophy.
This years theme was "D Day Funnies" . A number of unusually modified tanks operated during the Second World War by the United Kingdom's 79th Armoured Division or by specialists from the Royal Engineers.
there wasnt a massive amount of models in this years competition, Pauls
highly detailed & very nicely put together tank won the trophy so a
very well deserved congratulations from all the NMM members.
Northants Model Makers was
formed by a group of dedicated modellers in 2003 to encourage the art of model
making in all of its forms.
Our members all have their own speciality in modelling but actively encourage
all of our members to enhance their own field of modelling and to learn from
other members modelling techniques.
Our club is open to
modellers of all ages, ability and interests.
We have been responsible
for Model-Ex shows at Windmill Primary school in Raunds, Northamptonshire, since
the club formation. During these shows we have raised nearly £9000 for the
school, and have had about 8000 people through the door.
We also attend various
Steam Rallies and Town and Village shows in order to promote model making to a
wide a range of people as possible.
