Build Day

The second IPMS Build day is this weekend (Saturday 10th September.) at St Faiths Church hall in Burwood.

We will have all the usual stuff. Bring your models, a cutting matt, some tools and a light and sit down for a day of good conversation and modelling.

Doors open 10am and close around 10pm. We will have a pizza dinner from the local pizza shop at around 6pm. So come on down even if it is only for dinner. Coffee, tea, cake and soft drinks provided.

All day fee is $25.
Half day fee is $15.
Dinner only fee $5.

We will also hold the stash sale again. Bring along a couple of items you would like to get rid of, hopefully another member may pick them up.

Oak Park

So after a full days modelling at the build day, why not go out to Oak Park Scouts Model comp on the Sunday. Usually worth the effort and it is for a good cause.

Tuesday 19/7/16 Meeting Night.

Hi All,
Tuesday 19th is meeting night. Come along for a chat and to show off some models.

Main theme for the night will be models in progress. With band camp being run and won this past weekend there is sure to be plenty of models on the tables.

I have posted up some pictures from the weekend at Lady Northcote YMCA Camp tonite for people to look at. Suffice to say it was another fantastic weekend of modelling, story telling and laughing, oh and not to forget extremely fragrant flatulence.

Enjoy the pictures and we hope to see you on Tuesday.

Remember swap and sell is on the horizon, time to book if you want tables.

 A beautiful start to Sunday Morning in Glenmore.
 The Lodge where we stayed. Angliss Lodge.
 Was about -2 on Sunday morning, and all the cars were a bit icy.
 Saturday evening at the benches. Us modellers sure do take a lot of stuff with us.
