Ray Elliott says: “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.”

It is an ideal event to introduce new products to both the committed enthusiast and the novice alike while providing great entertainment for all visitors. As an added attraction for the public the organisers have also established the Hobby Expo which will be hosted in the same venue on the weekend.

Everybody attending Punchestown will also be treated to fun for all the family as we have target shooting and much more for all the family. It is important for us that the enthusiasts and their families enjoy themselves.”
