Model Bus Federation - The world's leading model bus authority for over 50 years


Each year the MBF attends and hosts a number of events and exhibitions throughout the country where members display their model collections and dioramas.  Whilst some of these events are member's only events, many others are open to the public.


In addition to the fine array of models on display, many of the manufacturers associated with the model bus industry are also often in attendance at these events.

If you have an interest in model buses, why not pop along to one of the public events near you or better still, why not join the MBF and gain access to exclusive member's only events and experience first hand the world of model buses.

Please note: due to the Coronavirus (Corvid-19) outbreak, a number of MBF events have been cancelled until further notice in line with HM Government's advice and guidance and in line with the rules governing corporate responsibilities and duty of care.  We apologise for any inconvenience cause, however our first priority is for the protection and well being of our members and exhibitors along with the general public.  It is hoped that the first MBF event to potentially proceed will be either Mid Anglia on 5 July 2020 or Nelson, Lancashire on 11 July 2020, however we are unable to confirm this at present.  Please keep checking here for updates.  Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
