South West Model Show

With sadness, The Tank Museum has taken the decision not to go ahead with the South West Model Show in October.

Whilst The Tank Museum has reopened, daily admissions will be capped at 1000 for the foreseeable future. This is in line with latest government advice.

Due to the space available, we would not be able to host the same numbers of traders and exhibitors while keeping appropriate social distancing required to keep them and our visitors safe.

For modelling fans, we are planning an online event on the weekend of 17-18 October. Keep an eye on our social media and website for details.

We hope to be able to run the event in a modified form in February 2021.


Can’t wait? Check out The Tank Museum’s selection.
