30th annual Australian model expo:

Over the Queens Birthday long weekend here in Australia (June 8, 9 and 10th), the 30th Annual Australian Model Expo was held at it's usual spot at the Sandown Racecourse in Melbourne.

This year would be my 7th visit to the Model Expo and I ended up taking several of my kits to enter in the competition again as well as supplying a few 1/144s to go on the Mecha Workshop table. Here's what was entered in the competition :


Unfortunately, I didn't win any prizes this year but members of the Mecha Workshop took out all 3 top spots on the table. Oh well, better luck next year I suppose!

I spent the majority of the day checking out the tables and chatting with the Mecha Workshop guys at the club table. I also took nearly 600 pictures of the event with photos from every category. All can be found in the Gallery which can be accessed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

For more information on this and forthcoming events, feel free to visit the IPMS Australia site and the Model Expo site.

If anyone sees their model in the Gallery and would like the original photo, please drop me a line via the Contact page and I'll be more than happy to email them to you.
