MODEL EXPO 2021 Update

Planning for the Australian Model Expo 2021 is underway, but in the current COVID environment there are a number of challenges we must overcome relating to venue and Government restrictions on events.

The Model Expo Committee expects to be able to make a further announcement by the end of January 2021, by which time we should have a clearer picture on the way ahead for the viability of the show from both a health and safety and a commercial aspect.

Laurence Farrugia
Director - Model Expo

The Australian Model Expo is currently the biggest Model Show in Australia. Held over 3 days, it is truely a unique event on the Australian Modelling scene. At the show you will see a showcase of everything that encompasses plastic modelling.

What is there to see?

A major part of the event is the Open plastic model competition that has over 60 categories and covers nearly all types of models, Aircraft, AFVs, Cars, Trucks, Science Fiction, Figures and almost anything else that you can imagine as the range and variation of kits increases. The competition regularly attracts over 500 models as entries. This is a great opportunity to enter a model so that it can be seen by your peers and interested public who attend the show.
