This is a TV series on scale model building and model railways that was produced by UTV and broadcast on Channel 4 from September 16'th to October 12'st 1985. No indb, tmdb If you were a kid during the 1960's to 1990's and were interested in model railways or scale models of airplanes or boats you would have probably seen at least one of the enchanting TV programmes introduced by Bob Symes. The avuncular if slightly dotty uncle we all wished we had as kids. This series was a belated follow up to his series Model World shown on BBC in 1975 and covers pretty much the same sort of subjects. But showing Bob's obvious enthusiasm toward model railways. Symes is one of those rare presenters that even if you dont have a strong interest in the subject their obvious love and joy for the subject is very infectious and makes for fascinating viewing.
