Possibly a bit late advertising this here but this show is on;

SA Scale Model EXPO 2023

Saturday 7 to Sunday 8 October 2023

Open to public 9:00am - 4:00pm Saturday and Sunday
John Dunning Centre, Prince Alfred College, Dequetteville Tce Kent Town.
Access is via Pirie Street off The Parade West (top right of the Google Earth image).


I & three other visitors to the site will be there. So, if you are attending (or even just thinking about doing so) & want to meet up let me know & I'll sort it out.



Old Wombat:
Last call for a Meet'n'Greet with zenrat, buzzbomb, rickshaw & myself! ;)

We'll be meeting up at 1300hrs on Saturday but I, for one, will be there almost* all weekend.

[*: I'll be disappearing for a little while on Sunday in an attempt to get photo's of a particularly odd variant of an M3 Grant to build for next years expo.]

Old Wombat:
Had a great weekend, mostly hanging out with Brian (buzzbomb) & met Fred (zenrat) on the Saturday (he had other reasons for being in the area & couldn't stay too long) but, unfortunately, Brian (rickshaw) was unwell & couldn't attend.

Then today was better than I expected.

The "Encounter in the Ruins" diorama got a Commendation

The Avro Winchester got 3rd Place (in the Unnominated/Scrathbuilt category), and

The (Real World) Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 got 2nd Place

My first ever placings ... I'm quite chuffed! ;D

Old Wombat:
Brian (buzzbomb) didn't do too badly either!

His is the "ESGF Radar Picket" (2nd Prize)

His is the BSG Viper Mk 2 Blacksun

(This won 1st Prize, too, but the Prize photo was a mess & had to be deleted)

I've probably missed several because he seemed to be walking up to collect a prize every few seconds! :o  ;D  :smiley:

Old Wombat:
A few of my favourites & a link to my SmugMug album;

And, lastly, this one when I was trying to quietly subvert the Small Scale Multi-Prop category into accepting a Whif amongst its entrants ...  :icon_ninja:

... Unfortunately I got found out & moved. Lucky for them, I say! ;) >:D
