*Please Note*
Exhibitor and Trader applications now closed


The Shuttleworth Scale Model Exhibition is back for another year, and we welcome all to attend. Whether you’re an enthusiast, intrigued party, or just looking for a good way to spend a Sunday, you’re sure to find it here.

Event Information

The event will follow a similar format to previous years, with a number of model exhibitors and trade stands located in the engineering hangar.

There will be a number of competitions featuring five categories:

  • Best 1/72nd and smaller;
  • Best 1/48th and smaller;
  • Best over 1/48th;
  • A special category for Best Model made by a person aged under 16;
  • The John Morris Memorial Trophy is awarded to the best model in the show as decided by the organising committee.

Please note that only exhibiting groups will be able to enter the competitions

Refreshments are available on the day from our excellent Runway Café.

Whilst we will do our very best to feature aircraft, vehicles and exhibits, this may change subject to workflow, serviceability and weather.
