Model Making Half Term at RAF Museum (17th January 2012)

Model Making Half Term at RAF Museum

If you’re looking for something exciting to entertain the children this February Half Term, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is inviting families to participate in a fun model making activity. Taking place from Monday 13th to Friday 17th February, visitors will have the opportunity to build an Airfix 1:72 Spitfire.

Models will be built alongside the full sized aircraft on display at the Museum in a communal and fun atmosphere.  You don’t have to be a skilled modeller to take part as staff will be there to lend a hand and to ensure visitors get the most from their modelling.  Plus, if you need a little inspiration as to how to paint your model Spitfire, sessions will be taking place next to the famous 1:1 scale model Spitfire built by James May for the BBC Toy Stories series.

RAF Museum Cosford Events Executive, Nina Mitchell says:
“All in all, this half term event promises to be a great day out for the whole family.  Plus all modellers will get to take their collectable Airfix model Spitfire home as a memento of the day.”

The model making activity will be taking place in the Museum’s Hangar 1 and sessions will run from 11.00am to 4.00pm each day.  Participation is just £3.00 per person and all materials including glue, paints and brushes will be provided by the Museum.  Tickets are available on the day from the Admissions Desk. 

The Museum is open daily from 10am.  Entry to the Museum is FREE.  Throughout the year there is a wide range of exciting events taking place at the Museum.  For further information on this and other events scheduled for 2012, please contact the Museum on 01902 376200 or visit
