After a 2 year, Covid 19 induced absence, the was held in from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th of June, 2022.
A record 902 models were entered in the various competition categories.

This year was also the first time I assisted with the judging. That was a great and informative experience.

The first set of photos are of the Large Scale Aircraft - Prop - Pre 1935 (1/35 and larger).
I'll let you guess which one is mine.

    • G'day John (@johnb),
      It was a great event.
      There were a number of vendors, although not as many from interstate as the usually are, and a large swap-meet on the Sunday morning.
      It is have a bit of "normal" returning.

  8. Thanks, Michael for sharing your pictures. I was there and it was indeed a fantastic event. Congratulations to the organisers, and to you for the quality of the images. And for the prize, too!

  11. Congrats. It was a great event! This was my first time at an expo and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely gave me some inspiration for my own builds and had me pricing 1/32 Mirage kits lol
