Tyabb Airshow 2018 Report

Today saw the return of the Tyabb Airshow in Tyabb Victoria which included a great selection of  WW1 and WW2 Warbirds, RC displays, Static military vehicle displays, and various aircraft flybys. The weather was around 24 degrees with cloud cover which made a comfortable day. The crowds were large but there was plenty of room to move around and to take advantage of the food stands and displays around the aerodrome.

My favorite aircraft of the day were the Sopwith Snipe,and Sopwith Pup replicas as well as the CA-12 Boomerang. There was even an aerial display by the only flying Lockheed Hudson and was a great sight to see. The RAN MH-60R Seahawk took to the sky and was very impressive and large. The Grumman Avenger was there again this year and if you have ever built one, you would be impressed at how massive it is on  the ground even with its wings folded. For the auto enthusiasts there was a classic car show with some real beauties on show. There were several military displays that were kind of setup as living dioramas which were amazing.

All in all is was a great day and as usual very well organised and catered for and for images of the day click here


March Meeting Update

This meeting went very well and was a lot of fun , especially as we had a pizza fest. Here are some pics of what was on the table.

Next Meeting Sunday 4th March

Yippee – we are back again this Sunday and it will be our reverse 2017 end of Year party. Ok, this sounds weird but as we dont have an end of year party as such, we decided to bring it into the new year.  There will be pizzas and drinks so please come along for the fun!

There has been a bit of activity over new releases and pending model shows and swap meets, and all this prior to the big one –  Model Expo 2018. I know I’m excited and I bet you are to………….

This meeting will be our usual format with a focus on modelling fun including discussions about the wonders of the plastic world, and the sharing of useful tips and inspirations.

See you all on Sunday!

February Meeting Update

Our first meeting of the year went well as did the committee meeting before hand. We had a good turn out with members bringing along a range of kits at various stages up to completion. We also had some great discussions as well as our usual show and tell. Rene accepted his trophy for our Build A Bitch club comp also, so here are some pics of the day.

Next Meeting Sunday 4th Feb

Better late than never to post our meeting reminder for tomorrow, and will be the first for the year. Yes that right, Warbirds is back again for another exciting year and I for one cant wait to get back to the club.

Before our scheduled meeting the Committee will be holding the first Committee meeting of the year to ensure that we are on target with the running of the club.

I am sure everyone will have a whole bunch of show and tell so it should be a jammed pack meeting.  There are a number of events early in the year so these will be discussion points to hash over, as well as the usual club stuff that we churn through every meeting.

Anyway I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!
