The Chiltern Model Railway Association will once again be holding its
Modellers' Day in 2015. The day, in previous years promoted as TIME the Totally Interactive
Modelling Event, involves modellers who belong to member organisations of the CMRA, presenting
and demonstrating items of modelling interest to colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere, away from
The event will also incorporate films, talks, discussions and practical demonstrations,
some by leading figures in the railway modelling hobby.
We have invited five excellent speakers to give presentations on the day:
Michael Watts & Bernard Gudgin - Oxford Training; Getting you on track
Ian Futers - Modelling the West Highland Railway; past and present
Tony Wright - The way forward
Luton MRC - The Great Train Robbery Diorama; research and presentation
We will also have several guest demonstrators attending:
Jerry Freestone - card modelling
Roger Sawyer - everything you need to know about soldering
Cat Gibbs - figure painting in the smaller scales
Andy Edgson - 3D printing, how it works
Poppy's Woodtech - modelling in thin wood
Roy Hickman - how to use up your old cereal boxes to produce buildings
Michael Tucker - larger scale modelling using natural products
Several members of the trade have also been invited:
Coastal DCC - for all your DCC control requirements
John Dutfield - 00 ready to run stockists
Layouts 4U - illuminated accessories
Ceynix Trees - miniature tree supplies
So if you belong to one of our member organisations,
even one of the national ones supporting a specific scale, why not come along? It is one of those pleasant opportunities to talk,
listen, learn and pass on your ideas to like minded modellers, indeed all participants are encouraged to reserve table space so
as to bring along their models and share their experiences.
Admission includes tea, coffee and an excellent buffet lunch - what more could you ask for?
