SAPMA Model Expo 2017 - now with pic's!
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:09:55 am »
SAPMA Model Expo will be held on the weekend of the 14 - 15 October 2017 at Immanuel College, 32 Morphett Road Novar Gardens SA.

I'll be there, along with a few of my models. If anyone else is going, it'd be great to meet up with you! :thumbsup:

I'll make it one year.
But unfortunately it won't be 2017.

I'm taking 2 weeks off work. One week to finish off some builds, the other to recover from the excitement (& the fallout from buying more kits). :party:


Also, it's going to be the last model show I attend until 2019, as my planned trip up the east coast via the Australian Model Expo in Melbourne next year has been stymied by a trip to the Med & the Czech Republic (+/- bits to be decided) which will include the SAPMA Expo weekend. :banghead:

A trip to the Czech Republic? I see a few side trips being organised around there.  ;D

Do you guys realise what my wife'd do to me if I even looked at a model shop whilst on holidays? :laugh:

Mind you, it won't stop me trying! ;)

Just work on the basis of 3/4 shoe/clothes shops to model shop ? ;)

There's an interesting "armour" shop just off Wenceslas Square which sells full size replica suits of armour and weaponry. Also has some fantastic model soldiers on display but price wise  :banghead: :banghead:

Lovely city Prague, nice country to visit as well  :thumbsup: Only been to Slovakia on business so can't really comment

Dead right there, but most of my work there was in Pilsen, where they invented lager, not that I drink it anyway. Pilsen also has the world's largest Tesco, where they sell cars and m'bikes too!  :o

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Yup although one is more a soldier shop who sells models if I think about it. So 3.25 ?  ;)

Trying to finalise some fiddly bits & pack kits in boxes for tomorrow.

I'm entering them in various categories but I expect to win nothing, as I don't have any references (not even kit instructions) & they're not really comp level builds, but it'll be fun to watch people's faces when they see them. ;D

My favourite bit is hanging around & listening to people talking about my builds. :wacko:
