Donation of large collection of Plastic Model kits to the Club

Posted by Peter Sutton, Wednesday, 17th May 2017 @ 2:10pm

  • Everyone at the Club is very grateful to Mark Iwaszko of Marlow Bottom.  Mark  kindly donated his late  father's very large collection of classic plastic kits to the club. His father, Bish Iwaszko, was a keen collector and modeler, who used his modeling skills in a professional capacity,  running a company called Miltra (Military Training), who produced scale recognition and familiarisation models for the British Army. 

     The photos shows just some of the large selection of kits being selected by club members.  Many Thanks to Mark - the kits will be enjoyed by members of the club for many years to come!
