Hi all,

Melbourne Model Expo is, at time of writing, less than 2 weeks away. So...

Who's going? Who wants to meet up? Who's crazy enough like me to go all three days? Photo opportunity?

I'll be going. I generally drop my kits off on the Friday night and then return on the Monday to attend the swap meet, have a look around and then collect my kits (I live a good hour and a half away in Ballarat after all!).

Hi Scott,

Looks like we'll be the only 2 Kitmaker members attending based on this post :-D Actually I know a few other blokes from other sites will be there on various days. What time you planning to go through on Monday? i'll probably be there pretty early looking for bargains

I'll probably be down that way lunch time-ish so I can have a good look before the end of the day.

Just got home from dropping my models off. Damn peak hour traffic added nearly 2 hours to my travel time!!

It was looking great when I got there too. Some models were starting to be entered and quite a few of the vendors were setting up too.

Hi Scott,

Yup, Friday traffic can do that

Went over to the show for a few hours today. All looks good. Some nice pieces. I think I saw your MaK suit as well some other Gundams which looked like your work. Not sure though.

I'm going back tomorrow with the missus in tow for a 2nd look.

There's also 3 Dinosaurs on the Miscellaneous table too. I'll be heading down in the morning to try and catch the swap n sell, then I'll spend a few hours looking around.

Was down there again today, this time with the missus in tow. Today was my photography day (so needless to say Her Highness got bored pretty quickly - but fortunately was kind enough not to say it ). I saw the dino's although I'm not sure I photographed all 3 as by that time of the process I was pretty knackered and slowing down... Got some 5-600 photos which I'll try upload sometime.

Will be back there for the swap & sell tomorrow morning...
