The Radio Controlled Transport North Kent Group have generously agreed to demonstrate their models in support of PS Medway Queen.
They started out as a small group of enthusiasts, interested in large scale, radio controlled models and have grown to a club with over 70 members. The group provides displays at events and public shows.
The models are to a scale of 1/14th full size, and are a mixture of ready built models, standard kits, modified or adapted kits, and fully scratch built models. Road haulage features as the predominant subject with a sizeable section of fully operational earthmoving plant models.
The models will be operating in the yard adjacent to the Visitor Centre and the ship will be open to the public as usual. There is a £5 charge for adults to tour the ship which has limited disabled access, especially at certain states of the tide.
In addition to the 1/14th scale models we are expecting a Dennis Sabre fire appliance to be there. Owned by R F R (events) of Iwade, Kent. It is used to provide safety fire cover for events and can be seen at various steam events as a water tender.
