Wings 2017

The Australian National Aviation Museum, which is located at Moorabbin Airport hosts the WINGS model competition which is held on the weekend of 21st-22nd October. The competition tables are located along side the aircraft on display, in a similar fashion to the Bayonet Comp located around an in progress restoration of a  B-24 Liberator. There were several swap & sell tables and a few traders plus a load of books to tempt the public and entrants alike. I was there long enough to snap a few pics of the show and all the exhibits, but all in all it was a fun day. Well done to the organisers and to the museum staff who worked hard to make this a great event.

On the Bench 28

Our last meeting saw something a little different in the form of a Podcast. Members David Goldfinch and Ian Keizers have started a high tech podcast show called ‘On the Bench’ and can be found on iTunes, and with further information on their Facebook page.

 

David is the shows host while Ian is the co host, and together they have created a professional show that covers all aspects of modelling. These include interviews with local and distant modellers, product reviews and discussions, segments such as ‘Whats on the Bench’ and many other interesting side discussions and useful information.

I look forward to see how this develops, as I think they have hit the mark with content which will no doubt appeal to the modelling community. To date two podcasts have been produced with many more to follow.

Model Expo 2017 Update

All over for another year with a congrats to all with the club taking the award for “Best Club Model Club Display” at this years event – 2nd year in a row! The display was the result of a lot of hard work by all members including the design, layout, printing and of course all those fantastic display models covering our ‘Anti Tank’ theme.

The event drew in large crowds and what looked to be record numbers of kits on the tables. There were also plenty of traders selling their respective products as well as several excellent demonstrations across the three days.

Here are some pics of the quality of kits at this years show.
