Every year thousands of people go to the model show hosted by the Elmbridge model club, at Sandown park about 20 miles from London.

Here are some pics of the 1997 action, taken with Olympus C400L digital camera.


Sandown Park is normally race course. Grandstand (above)
provides excellent viewpoint for flying. Trade stands are indoors.
