Date: 23-27 October 2017Time: 11.00am to 3.00pm Cost: £3.00 per person / Admission to Museum FREEOctober half term is just around the corner, so if you’re starting to plan how you’re going to entertain the children, look no further than the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford who are inviting families to participate in a fun model making activity. Taking place from Monday 23 to Friday 27 October, little aviators can choose from a vast number of Airfix kits to build, including a 1:72 Mosquito, Sea Harrier, Mitsubishi Zero, Albatros or Sopwith Pup.During ‘Airfix Make and Take’ week, children will build their models amongst the aircraft on display in the Museum’s Hangar 1. Suitable for children aged 8+, you don’t have to be a skilled modeller to take part as staff will be there to lend a hand and to ensure visitors get the most from their modelling. Plus, if you need a little inspiration on how to paint your Airfix model, take a look at some of the real aircraft on display in the Museum hangars. If building an Airfix kit is too fiddly for your little ones, families with younger children can opt to assemble and decorate a wooden biplane. Each kit contains pre-cut wooden pieces, plastic screws and easy to follow instructions. To give your wooden kit the wow factor, the Museum will provide all the colours and accessories needed to help personalise your model including foam letters and coloured jewels! Not only do participants get to take their models home, organisers are also giving modellers the chance to WIN an Airfix prize bundle worth over £75. Packed with everything any young modeller could wish for including three Airfix sets with accessories and two Airfix quick build kits. To enter the competition, hit ‘Like’ on the Museum’s Facebook page @rafmuseumcosford and tag us in a photo of your completed model kit by the end of the day on 29 October 2017. The winner will be selected and the prize will be posted out so they can continue the model making fun at home. Plus, two lucky runners up will also receive an Airfix starter kit. So if you think you can build the perfect Airfix kit or give your model the most creative makeover, why not give it a go! RAF Museum Cosford Public Events Manager, Abi Betteridge said: ‘Following the success of our Model Making half term in February, we have added another week to the calendar. We are looking forward to another busy week, welcoming both children who have made Airfix kits before, and those who, this will be their first time. For those who haven’t yet had a go at making Airfix kits, we will have members from the Shropshire Scale Modellers on hand to help give advice on how to build and paint their perfect model. Families with children under 8, we will also have a wooden bi-plane alternative which they can glue together and use crayons and stickers to decorate.’Tickets for the model making activity are available from the Visitor Centre on arrival. The activity will run from 11.00am to 3.00pm each day and participation is just £3.00 per person. All materials including glue, paints and brushes will be provided by the Museum (children will need to be supervised by an adult and may require assistance with the model making). Then why not continue the fun at home…all participants will receive a 10% discount voucher to use on model kits for sale in the Museum shop.The Museum is open daily from 10am and entry is FREE of charge. Parking charges apply on site.The First World War in the Air Exhibition at Cosford was made possible through funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and with support from BAE Systems.
