2019 NSW Model Show

June 22, 2019 · in Show Reports · 13 Comments

The 19th 2019 NSW Model Show (hosted and run by Illawarra Plastic Modellers Association) was held over the weekend of 18th and 19th May 2019. The show is one of the largest in NSW with 380 entries received this year, a new record. My interest in mainly aircraft and as such, here are a selection of models that caught my eye this year. I will post some other model photos later as well.
Happy Modelling !

  1. That F-4 in 1/32nd scale is out standing (Winner)and the last photo of the Beaufighter with the wet wing literally it has water on it ... I feel for the person making that kit.

    Great photos and show. Thank You for sharing Darren.

  2. Hello Darren,
    Thanks for showing us, what is going on in New South Wales.
    Impressive line up of models.
    Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  3. Some really fine talent(s) on display there...thanks for sharin' 'em with us.

  4. Looks like a great show, and itโ€™s nice to see the number of entries on the rise.

    Appreciate you taking the time to share the photos, look forward t9 seeing more.


  5. Some fine photographs here, and the same can be said for all the models presented. Funny to see whole sections devoted to one particular plane (P-47, Hawker Sea Fury, Mustangs) are those SIG or just a result of recent releases by Airfix ๐Ÿ˜‰ ? I do like that flying Blenheim very very much

    • Hi Pedro The Sea Furies were part of a individual trophy "Airfix Cup" where a recent release Airfix aircraft is chosen as subject - last year was 1/48 P51, previous 1/48 Hurricane and inaugural subject was 1/72 Beaufighter. The P-47's you see are mostly mine...

  6. Good to see what's happening on the other side of the country. Particularly like the P-47s

  7. That's some serious work on display Darren, thanks for sharing.

  8. Thank you for sharing Darren. Fantastic and inspirational work on this show. Your P-47's are impressive, very well done.

  9. Thanks for sharing! I like the camoe'd RAF Jug and SeaFuries selection. A-20G Green Hornet evokes sweet Matchbox memories. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Thanks for the great photos! Looks like a lot of well-made Sea Furies & Thunderbolts..all of the kits are really well-done.

  11. Thanks - as an aircraft enthusiast, I can't fault your choice of selection! Some great looking models on the tables.
