Mod­els charm fans of all ages

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Hun­dreds oohed and aa­hed over de­tailed model train sets as proud own­ers showed them off last week­end.

As well as trains on dis­play there were hob­bies of many kinds, in­clud­ing model ships, model cars, hand­crafts, spin­ners and weavers, and war games.

The show aimed to ex­pose the dif­fer­ent hob­bies in the area and give peo­ple a chance to sign up if they were in­ter­ested.

Don Maskell from the Mata­mata Rail Modellers said he was pleased with the two-day show.

‘‘The event went a lot bet­ter than ex­pected,’’ he said. ‘‘Peo­ple came from all over to have a look, in­clud­ing from Tau­ranga and Hamil­ton.’’
