13th Annual Scale Modelling Exhibition and Swap'N'Sell
The Modellers Of Ballarat will be holding their Annual Scale Modelling Exhibition incorporating a Swap'N'Sell at the Caro Convention Centre, at the University of Ballarat, University Drive, Mt Helen Campus, Ballarat.
At the 2014 show the club tabled more than 900 scale models of all descriptions and scales. These scale models included Aircraft, Armour, Automobiles, Science Fiction, Ships, Figures, Fantasy and any subject which a member may wish to replicate. The member's models on display were described by the public who visited on the day as outstanding.
The exhibitions displays are traditionally held close to ANZAC Day because many of the models are related to military history. This helps us reflect on the meaning of that special day. There are usually raffles on the day of donated kits etc. with all proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Australia, Ballarat Volunteer Branch. At the last show, the club was able to donate over $1000 to this charity, thanks to our generous sponsors and supporters. In the past six years the MOB has donated over $6,000 to charities in the Ballarat region.
The club regularly meets on the first Saturday of each Month at 7.30pm at the Kohinoor Community Centre, Ballarat. Visitors are always welcome as are like minded enthusiasts wishing to join a non competition based club who enjoy meeting other people with similar interests.
Meetings are always friendly and informal with the emphasis on enjoyment of the hobby.
