It is all aboard for the Otago Model Engineering Society’s Exhibition Weekend.

The club is opening its doors this Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3.30pm for a feast of miniature marvels.

The exhibition is a chance for its members to show off some of the hard work they put into their models.

The club was formed on April 30, 1936, and is still going strong more than 85 years later, with its facilities on John Wilson Ocean Drive the envy of many other model clubs around the country.

From boats to buildings, trains to planes, there will be a wonderful variety of carefully crafted machines for all the family.

Affordable prices of only $10 for a family ticket, $5 for adults and $3 for children plus $2 train rides allow all to enjoy.
