Hawkesbury Hobby and Model Show

Antique Machinery Rally Weekend Hawkesbury

We are always looking for new members including juniors  to join us at our meetings. So if you have an interest in military subjects but cannot afford a 1:1 scale  version then develop your skills in scale modelling in 1: many scales of your favorite military subjects and learn from a range of master builders at our meetings.

Dont do military, thats OK too as we accomodate Sci Fi, car and truck, figures and a range of other scale modellers as well. You can discuss your models on our facebook page.

Calander Updated for 2016 Events.

Hi all i have updated the calander for the Illawarra show dates and amended the meeting dates until  Nov 2016. If you know of other event dates let me know so I can add these too.

Bring along your Work In Progress models, dio, viignette, figures or your latest reference find for discussion.

Dont forget that every meeting is a competition night so get those completed models in for judging for medallions, End of Year Best of Class and Modeller of the Year.

 

Photo Booth Set-up

Just seen on the Hack a Day website – an interesting photo booth design by an actual modeller!

What’s interesting (to me at least) is the lighting from below the model. I’d have thought that might have introduced more problems, but by using a translucent sheet of perspex, you get a really nice effect.

Check out Doog’s website for some more pics using his setup, and for technique and general modelling articles.
