What's New ?
15 June 2017Well that is Model Expo 2017 Over for another year. The Gallery of the 1st place getters and Special Awards has been updated and results are on the Downloads page. Thanks to all the Modellers who entered, Clubs for displays, Traders and Sponsors. A special thanks to all those who came along to see some of the wonderful models on display over the three days.
Shortly the planning for Model Expo 2018 will commence so hopefully we will have another great show
There were a few models that had commended awards that had been taken before the show was over, so as per the conditions of entry, those results were forfeited.
7 June 2017Pre-registration has now closed, but still plenty of opportunity to enter models to be part of the Australian Model Expo 2017. Turn up at the venue, with your models on either Friday Night from 5pm - 9pm or Saturday Morning 9am-12pm.
Traders space is sold out and Swap and Sell has all tables booked. So there must surely be something for everyone, so come down to see some great models at what is effectively the biggest model shop in Australia for 3 days.
29 may 2017Lots of great prizes thanks to our wonderful sponsors, kits for Best of Brands, Paints, and an Iwata Airbrush and compressor package. Come along see the traders, be sure to enter a model to be in the running for the pool of Sponsor prizes. You can Pre-enter your models now, to cut down the wait time in the checkin queue, plus Swap and Sell is almost sold out, down to the last few tables. Also, the Wally St John award for the 1/350 scale ships should be on again, thanks to Randall Wilson of Navart.
22 May 2017Swap and Sell is down to under 10 tables. Pre-registraton is underway as well. Demonstration schedule has also been posted up
14 May 2017Well traders tables are now sold out and Swap and Sell are moving along briskly as well, so to ensure you do not miss out get in touch sooner rather than later.
We have opened up Pre-registraton for the Model Expo 2017 competition as well. Follow the guidelines on the page to get your entries into the Expose system and save time in the registration queue. Getting close folks !
7 May 2017Expo is getting closer. We have nearly sold out of traders tables and Swap and Sell are moving along as well. Pre-entry will open mid May for those who wish to use that facility to get your models entered. Don't forget that we planning some great Demonstrations with a couple of excellent figure painters and airbrush demo's.
11 Apr 2017As an extra feature this year, thanks to Anest Iwata and Adelaide Moulding and Casting there will be an Iwata HP.CN airbrush and Ninja Air Compressor to give away. See the When and Where page for details.
30 Mar 2017Great to see still more Sponsors coming onboard. We have some great support from Model Suppliers and can see that we should have a Best of Brand for Airfix, Revell and Tamiya (TBC), courtesy of Southern Model Supplies. More Traders have confirmed their attendance, so available tables are getting short.
There has been a few changes to categories this year, to try to even out the Competition Judging process a bit. Large Scale Prop has been split into Pre 1935 and Post 1935, Gundam Classes now have a Out of Box and Modified split and 1/72 Small Aircraft has been defined as Commonwealth and Non-Commonwealth/Other nations.
Typically Commonwealth is members of the British Commonwealth or thereabouts. These definitions are to try and even out numbers as Allied and Axis was tending to become lopsided toward Allied for the past few years.
7 Mar 2017Great to see some of the wonderul Sponsors coming onboard again. More Traders have confirmed and the vibe is starting to mount up
19 Feb 2017Traders are beginning to confirm their attendance and we have some new traders and some returning for 2017. Bookings for Swap and Sell are also being taken.
3 Feb 2017If you are interested in being a trader at Model Expo, the Traders page has been updated, plus Swap and Sell Trader information. Bookings for both are available now and early booking encouraged due to limited space
