We've got the third episode this week, so no-one's left yet.

But from what's been on already, there are some seriously talented people out there playing with bricks...

This week is the Finals here.
Brad F, if you can stream it then all the episodes are on ABC iView.

This is some bunk. We Yanks don't get to glimpse such awesome programming.  :angry:

You will Brad C.  They will surely make a US version and (like happened to Ninja Warrior) it'll be bigger and louder and have more razzamatazz.

Should you know anyone criminal enough to illegally download tv shows then they might find that if they search for Lego Masters AU then they will find episodes can be bit torrented.
Allegedly.

It is, isn't it.  I'm a convert to egg planes now.   Some aircraft work better in this style than others though.
I might tackle an F4 next in this scheme.

I did one for the late Mrs_PR19 some years ago now. She was crazy about ducks, thus the special nose emblem.  ;D

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Wow, those transfers have yellowed!
I got my Airfix Boomerang out of the display case last week and the transfers on that, which had been yellowed but then reverted to newish looking after the window treatment, had gone back to yellowed.

Nice build Kit but IMO the Harrier isn't one of their better Egg Planes.

Day off today and after doing a huge grocery shop (it takes longer if, like me you refuse to use to a large supermarket chain) I finished off the Fairly and then packed the rest of the models for the Ballarat show on Sunday.  I've said it before, and having a tendency to repeat myself will say it again, but model cars are so much easier to pack for transport than aircraft and other subjects.
Rather than attempt to subvert their stupid "no what ifs" ruling in the Aircraft and Military classes I am just not going to enter anything in them.  It's their loss.  I've packed two planes but they'll both be in the Sci Fi class.

I really don't understand that ruling, as you say "their loss".

Yes indeed, but it's about 25 yrs old by now, and it's lived in shade its entire life. Perhaps I'll park it in a window and see what happens.

I really don't understand that ruling...

Especially since, as it is mainly a car model show there is only one class for aircraft and one for military.  To the average car modeller a plane is a plane is a plane and they'll just vote for the one they like best (usually the biggest one or most colourfull one).  They won't care if it's had its engines swapped or if it's been painted in the "wrong" colour scheme.
The ruling was made to assuage a complainant.  They won't tell me who it was.
The overall result is that less models are entered.

After finalising the packing I had a play with the Toyota Landcruiser I stripped.
A bit of fiddling, cutting of springs and superglue got the ride height from this...

That poor Landcruiser! What are you doing to it! :o :o :o (Where's the "horrified" emoji when you need it? :unsure:)
