I spent yesterday in Australia's national capital, Canberra, at the ACT
Scale Modellers' Society Annual Competition 2004.
The two-day competition was open to local club members, visitors from
other clubs and the general public, including junior modellers. There
was an impressive roll call of models of a wide range of subjects -
planes, military vehicles, cars, trucks, figures, dioramas and more -
built to a very high standard, including some very imaginative

More than 230 models were
entered for the competition.
A busy vendors' room was
also well attended, and included a large buy, swap and sell table.
Being located between
Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra offers a good opportunity for for
modellers from both of those cities to travel to this show. I was
pleased to catch up with friends from Melbourne and rural NSW, in
addition to the Canberra locals.
The three hour drive from
Sydney was well worthwhile!
