Next Meeting Sunday 10th Sept

Yep were back again after a slight change in meeting dates due to Father s Day last weekend (Special Persons Day to some)…………..

Our schedule is running hot with a few items on the list such as:

Build a Bitch – Mark from Sprue Finders has once again donated kits that were allocated at our last meeting and also includes special prizes

SAPMA Expo – our pending road trip is on the drawing board with the theme of ” Naval Aviation – The Flying Seamen” – sounds like a winner to me!

Bring along your kits and anything new to share with the group.

See you there!


August Meeting Update

Another great meeting including our AGM and some nice pizza to wash it all down with. Our members brought along show and tell goodies as show by the images below.

Next Meeting Sunday 6th August

Yippee our next meeting is on again this Sunday with our usual format. We will also be holding our AGM an hour before our scheduled meeting at 12:00, and there will be yummy pizza to devour during the proceedings.

Build-A-Bitch will be kicking off this month with some kits being supplied by Mark from Sprue Finders, so will be interesting to see whats on the table.

Our Gunna Builds are due for some updates to see where participants are at, so be prepared!

SAPMA Expo is all go with the club covering the cost of a vehicle to make the long trip to this event – more on this as we get closer.

Dont forget to bring along a kit to build, which adds to the look that we actually build models…………..

See you all there!

Liquidation Sale: Metro Hobbies Melbourne

Due to the compulsory acquisition of our Swanston Street store by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, we will be closing our doors after 30 years of trading. Starting this Saturday, 29 July, we will be having a massive stock liquidation, with markdowns across the entire store on all stock at our CBD store only, so get in quick to get big discounts on quality brands in store! Doors close on 1st September.

Don’t worry though, we expanded our Box Hill store last year to a much larger location meaning that we can continue to grow this store and the product range on offer. We will also be relocating the same technical expertise from our CBD store to our Box Hill store and we are only a phone call or email away.  We will continue to look for more opportunities to expand Metro Hobbies in the near future.



July Meeting Update

Today’s meeting was a lot of fun with the continued format of whats new, in progress builds and up coming events, ie. SAPMA Expo. We also spent a little time looking at what made the recent Model Expo a great success, and what goodies we all spent our pocket money on. As usual I took a few pics on what the members brought along for show and tell or general discussion.
