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.

Big Day Out

On Saturday 6th May several club members got together to take a trip to visit Metro Hobbies, Hobby HQ and to join in a lunch at the Coldstream Brewery. Visiting a hobby shop is a great thing under any circumstances but to do it in a group is even better. Metro Hobbies has a great selection of kits and supplies and at reasonable prices so is well worth a visit. They have have two stores, one in Box Hill and the other in the Melbourne CBD in Swanston Street. Our second stop was at Hobby HQ in Thomastown, and is basically a small warehouse full of kits and items that are probably harder to get. To cap things off we enjoyed a late lunch at the Coldstream Brewery, which was awesome and was really a continuation of model talk but with great food and beer. This was a fantastic day with many kits and other goodies purchased, so look forward to the next club outing.
