Sunday Meeting

Modeller's hard at work at the February 2019 meeting


Despite the cold weather, modelers were well insulated at the Helicopter Museum and lots of great progress was made. Why not come and join us on a Sunday morning.

Lots of great work at the January 2020 meeting


Modeller's hard at work on a cold Sunday morning but well supplied with hot drinks from "Bob's" Cafe. See this page for details of our meetings during 2020. 

Woolpack Meeting - 3rd Tuesday Monthly

Friends of the Helicopter Museum


The 'Woolpack' meeting was originally established as a regular get-together for local members of the "Friends of the Helicopter Museum" - many of whom were also either volunteers at the Museum and/or model club members.  As well as chatting about the Museum, we spent progressively more time discussing general subjects but often they were club-related.  These days it has just become an extension of the club meeting on the 2nd Tuesday, but without any of the formality (such as it is). 

December Meeting - 17th

January Meeting - 14th

February Meeting - 18th

Everyone arrived at the Museum as arranged and booked in, we found that the ticket also included entrance to the Explosives Museum, just up the road.

HMS Alliance, Andy Trewin's old boat, This is Andy in his actual bunk, Andy gave us a guided tour.

We first visited HMS Alliance, Andy Trewins old boat, one of the pictures shows Andy in his actual bunk, Andy gave us a very interesting guided tour.

Explosives Museum


 After visiting the rest of the museum it was decided to have some lunch, Terry suggested The Star, a Wetherspoons in Gosport High Street, after which we then visited the Explosives Museum, it covered all forms of Naval Armament history, the photo shows some naval guns at the entrance
