The museum’s marketing assistant Peter Michallat said: “With models ranging from Star Wars and superheroes to tanks and trains there really was something for everyone to enjoy.

“The show is always one of the our most popular days of the year and it’s quite a sight to see so many model exhibits against the unique backdrop of the world’s largest collection of helicopters.”
