We are back for 2019 with our first meeting of the year. I hope you all had a great xmas break and managed to clean up your work benches, ready for a fresh start to the new year.
This meeting will be an opportunity to bring along your new kits and projects and anything else you have for show and tell. There has been so much going on in the modelling world so I guess we will have lots to talk about.
I wont be able to make it for the first meeting so have fun and see you all at the March meeting!
The family and I recently took a trip to New Zealand with full intent on visiting the Aviation Heritage Centre in Omaka. The Centre is split into two sections dedicated to both WW1 and WW2 aircraft, plus a mix of well presented exhibits throughout the display areas. The WW1 exhibition titled ‘Knights of the Sky’ with its aircraft and artefacts is owned by Peter Jackson and is simply stunning. The WW2 exhibition is called ‘Dangerous Skies’ and features full scale replicas of a Hurricane and Stuka which are both hanging from the ceiling (not using drawing pins and fishing line though!), as well as other interesting period aircraft.
The Aviation Heritage Centre is located 5km from Blenheim right next tot he Omaka airfield, on the South Island. This is a must if visiting New Zealand and an opportunity to see and compare some flying examples of these amazing flying machines.
