Model and militia enthusiasts from across the North-East descended on Darlington for a large-scale exhibition.
The event, held at Darlington College, was organised by the Darlington Military and Modelling Society and boasted an array of military and sci-fi figures, vehicles and memorabilia.
There was an open model painting competition with prizes awarded to best in show, along with trade stands and bring and buy stalls with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
Renowned modeller, Mike Blank, also travelled from Sweden to attend the event and deliver a presentation on creating vignettes.
Colin Holmes, secretary of the Modelling Society, said the event was very well-attended, with visitor and participant numbers up 60 per cent on the previous year.
“It all went really well,” he said.
The society has held an annual exhibition since its formation in 1978 and they continue to grow in popularity, with this year’s show experiencing an influx in model aeroplanes.
The group meets on the second Friday of every month at the Park Place Centre in Darlington from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and new members are welcome.
