Another show completed. Some 834 Models in Competition categories, heaps more on some of the wonderful Club displays and lots of models, tools, accessories and supplies snapped up at the terrific array of traders.

Thanks to the modellers who entered and put on displays, Traders for supplying goodies, Sponsors who helped along with backing, prize kits and supplies. Also to the excellent crowds of the public who came along to see all that was on show. Thanks to the volunteers both local and interstaters who helped out getting the judging done on Saturday night and getting stuff done around the show. Does not not happen with out them.
Finally to the Expo Committee team, all volunteers from the clubs and groups around the Victorian area, who give up time to organise and run the show.

Well almost there. This will probably be the last Website update until after the show. Tomorrow at 10:00 we start setting up the 300 + tables, getting things in place, traders onsite and all that goes into the biggest Model Show in Australia.
If you want to lend a hand tomorrow, be very grateful, from setting up the tables to flowing through to helping out with the expected influx of models for entries into the competition. We have 170 odd, models already entered as pre-registered, so that is a great start.
So bear in mine, the competition tables are there to show off your work to your fellow modellers and the public. Doing well in the competition and getting a place is great, but so is being part of the show, sharing your works with your peers, the public and just adding to the overall vibe of of the show. Hope to see lots of entries and lots of familiar and hopefully new faces at the show. Heaps of traders, lots to see.

See you at Model Expo 2019

Looking over the entries over the past few years, we have added a new Category for Animal models. This includes any real world creatures like animals, birds, fish, insects and also includes Dinosaurs. Fantasy/Sci Fi Animals/Creatures will still go in the the appropriate category types.

While on categories, these categories are selected to spread models out into comfortable groups where possible, loosely based on a theme. For example an Out of the Box Modern AFV will get put into either Allied or Axis out of the box whichever sort of suits the best. The bottom line there is it is still an Out of the Box AFV.

Some new Traders added and Swap and Sell Tables are moving.
