Visitors in Benderloch took in all the sights at the weekend – including the leading tower of Pisa, writes Kathie Griffiths.
The famous Italian attraction was just one of the miniature iconic landmarks featured alongside displays of small-scale cars, trains and planes at a die cast model show in the Victory Hall over two days, raising £1,067.
There were hundreds of exhibits at the show, which donated £300 to the hall for its upkeep and £767 to Scotland’s charity Air Ambulance. George Berry from North Argyll Die Cast Association, who has been collecting models since he was ‘ knee high to a grasshopper’, said: ‘I’d really like to thank everyone who came – to display and visit. It was a great success.’
The event also brought a happy end to June and Bob Mann’s holiday when they spotted a hoarding for the show on the way home to Leeds.
Bob is a member of the Model Bus Federation: ‘It was a bit of luck,’ he said.
