October 14 and 15th saw the annual South Australian Plastic Modellers Association show and competition. I attended on the Sunday, and here in no particular order are some pics.
A couple of cars. A De Lorean

Image

This appealed because at one time every car that was missing it's radio aerial had a coat hanger in the shape of Australia stck in the empty slot :)

Image

Armoured cars

Image

Image

Image

Armour builds

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Aircraft. Nice metallic finish on the Mirage

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Wessex wreckage

Image

Image

Some more aircraft. Airfix 1/24 Typhoon

Image

Image

Don't recall who, but someone on this forum dropped their Frog Vimy. Here's some inspiration

Image

We've all seen the photo, this is the first time i've seen it in model form

Image

The Atlantique was very nice, as was the Beverley. The Dakota was a junior entry :grin: nice work

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some nice groupings on the Airfix stands

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The Airfix mounted figures

Image

A nice rendition of a U.S. ship. Then and now. This was only a small model too :shock:

Image

A Ferrari themed Star Wars kit

Image

3D printed Soviet Buran and Lifter. This was BIG :grin:

Image

A Jumbo and a Kingfisher

Image

Image

Until next year.

cheers for the pictures Nigel; some great models amongst that lot and some excellent inspiration too. If South Australian juniors are turning out Daks that good, I'm packing it in!

Some amazing work on display. Those northern Aussies are going to have to pull something special out of the bag

A fine collection with lots of good ideas to 'adapt'.
