Elgin’s Modelfair made a return to the town hall for its annual showcase at the weekend.
The event, organised by Elgin Model Railway Club, brought families together with something for everyone on offer.
Andrew Allardyce, the club’s secretary, stated that he was “very pleased” with the event and the turnout.
He said: “A good number of people showed up and we received very positive comments from the public.
“It’s a great feeling of accomplishment once it’s over. There was a lot of preparation put into the event, and we were always wondering how it would turn out. We are very happy with how it went.”
Due to Duncan MacRae’s departure from the role of exhibition manager, this was Colin Williamson’s first time in the role.
Andrew said: “Colin was apprehensive at first but was very content with how everything turned out as it went very smoothly.”
The venue hosted 32 exhibits from several model societies including the Aberdeen Modellers Society and the Culbin Model Club.
The club is already looking ahead to next year’s event. Andrew added: “So far, we have one or two ideas on what changes can be made. We’re really looking forward to it after the success of the event on the weekend.”
