Thursday, 9th November, 2017 9:29am

Model Fest 4 returns to the Cork International Hotel in the Cork Airport Business Park on Sunday 19 November. Over 1,250 adults and children attended the model die cast, diorama and toy show last year, and this year promises to be even bigger.

“This show features something for everyone - collectors’ items, children’s toys and fantastic displays,” said organiser and local Cork business man Micheal O Murchu.

There will be another appearance by Santa this year to take advance orders for all the children in Cork.

This event will again raise funds for the Marymount Hospice together with Ann O’Mahoney, the local West Cork fundraising organiser for the Friends of Marymount. Last year Model Fest and the friends of the Marymount Hospice Cork Raised just over €2,500.

Micheal is a model enthusiast with a vast knowledge of model die cast, cars, tractors, trucks, buses, military vehicles and trains and boats.

This year there will be new diorama displays, more exhibits and stalls, even bigger selections of farm machinery from Britain’s SIKU and Universal Hobbies, beautiful dolls and doll’s houses fully furnished to view and a fantastic display of remote control trucks and vehicles. This year Model Fest has arranged for train sets and tracks to be on display.

Model Fest 4 will be open to the public on Sunday 19 November from 10.30am to 5pm.

Tickets are €7 per adult and €2 per child (18 and under). Further pricing deals will be available on the day.
