SAPMA's premier scale modelling event returns this October with their 38th annual event!
The 2021 South Australian Scale Model Expo will be held on the weekend of Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October 2021 at the new location of Cosgrove Hall, 40-50 York Ave, Clovelly Park 5042.
The South Australian Scale Model Expo is the premier modelling event hosted by the South Australian Plastic Modellers Association (SAPMA) and is considered to be the longest-running annual event of its type in Australia.
With the global pandemic keeping many of the nation's best model builders locked down at home, this two-day expo is a special opportunity to see what they have been working on!
Expect a showcase of museum-quality models by model builders of all standards and ages, including aircraft, cars, trucks, military vehicles, ships, dioramas, sci-fi and historical figures.
Also present at the expo are hobby traders selling model kits and accessories, modelling tools, reference books - in fact, just about everything connected to the flourishing hobby of plastic scale modelling!
Plus model makers will host finishing demonstrations and many of the exhibitors will participate in the main attraction of the expo - the South Australian Scale Model Competition - a major technically judged competition with more than 50 trophies and prizes on offer to entrants.
If you wish to enter your model for technical judging or for display only, please see here.
SA Scale Model Expo 2021 will be following strict guidelines from SA Health including a COVID-safe management plan to keep everyone safe for the duration of the event.
This popular event is family-friendly and is a must for anyone who has an interest in the art of scale model making. It's a wonderful opportunity for parents to introduce their children to a timeless hobby which involves the construction and painting of model kits suitable for all ages and skill levels.
