Last year I attended the Return of the Garrison weekend at the Leicester Space Centre with some friends and fellow model makers, and we had a great time.
Between us we put on a great display of purely Star Wars related models which drew a lot of interest all round.
At times you could hardly see the table and the kids were really interested in everything.
Part of the display included a partial reconstruction of a previous group build of a rebel hanger bay. Seen in the middle below.
At one point we had to get security in.
And we got to meet Warwick Davies, who did the raffle draw we had been running raising money for his charity. Over the weekend we managed to raise over £350.
This year the same team as last year will be in attendance on 25th and 26th June 2016 at the National Space Centre. Full details are on their webpage at http://spacecentre.co.uk/event/return-of-the-garrison/
Currently working on a number of related builds which will be revealed at the show and I’ll do blog entries for them afterwards.
