Ireland's National Diecast Model Hobby and Diorama Show has been announced.
The inaugural event will take place at the Punchestown Racecourse exhibition centre in Naas, Co Kildare from the 12th -13th of October 2013.
The organisers say the event is a must for all enthusiasts of diecast models and dioramas as it will be the largest gathering of traders and displayers to be found under one roof in Ireland.
In addition to the displays on view, the event will also have other attractions like full scale vintage cars, family entertainment, an extended hobby expo encompassing other collectors interests and much, much more.
Ray Elliott, one of the organisers: “It is a challenge to host Ireland’s first truly national Diecast Model Hobby and Diorama show and our hope is that by creating an event like this, that it will be the highlight of the year for every model collector and diorama enthusiast in Ireland. It is also important for us to attract new people of all ages to our pastime. To do this we have invited some of the best in our business from throughout the country, thereby creating a focal point that encompasses everything that the avid collector and novice diorama maker will ever need to know in order to enjoy our pastime. In fact you could say we are building the largest diecast model and Diorama showroom in the country.”
