The Weekend of October 10/11 saw the running of the Annual South Australian Plastic Modellers Association (SAPMA) Expo. This was the first year the event was held at Immanuel College near Glenelg. It was a smooth transition, the hall itself is well lit for great model viewing and carpeted to make pleasant hours of walking around the model tables as well as the traders and club displays.
SAPMA invite modellers to put their works on display regardless of whether they wish them to be judged or not which is a great idea. This is in addition to an array of club and private displays. A large cross-section of teh modelling art was on display with something for everybody.
A few Warbirds members made the trip across the border to meet up with some of our South Australian members. The Galland’s Wish display made it safely with all 13 Spitfires present, a big thank-you to all members for making their kits available. The display was well received and as at Melbourne, some puzzled faces soon had smiles on them once the display boards were read and the intent understood.
Thank you to the SAPMA team who made us feel so welcome and congratulations on another great Expo!
