This year’s Model Engineering and Hobby Show promises to be bigger than ever and will be held at Springfields events centre in Spalding over the weekend.

From boats to locomotives and even robots, the event brings together societies from across the East of England.

There will be trade stands for the experts and live demonstrations of industry machinery for newcomers. Remote control cars, trucks, boats and planes will keep younger visitors entertained.

Tim Webster, organiser, hopes it will inspire more young people to get into engineering. You can read about how the event went in next week’s Spalding Guardian.

Reporter Adele Norris went along today for a sneak preview while they were setting up.
