Hey folks
Brief update, just got confirmation that we're all good to go, setup day is Friday 12th July from 1:00 pm.
As our display area is generally made up of members of KM I've decided to get the area in our name, to recognise the hard work put in by our members here in turning up and having fun.
It's not a massive show with a huge amount to see and do but, it's a great show made up of people that like to share their various hobbies. There's a variety of things to see from Wood turning to spinning wool, plus the obligatory choo choo displays which are abundant and of course there's us the ugly, rough bunch that turn up from all over the North island for shits and giggles as they say.
More to follow.

That sucks big time, I'd set aside a fair amount of table space for you based on previous years.......... :'(
Will have to find someone else to fill your big boots.

I'll be there. Probably won't have anymore than what i had at AiC though, we have only just started moving things back in the house but hope to have the model room set up in the next few weeks so may be able to get a few easy builds done before then.

Bring what you can mate, I think it might be a bit bare without Glenn's Dio's :ohmy: and I've retired Gary's travelling model show :)

I'm sure we can put together a good show. Got several dios to help fill Glenn's space not on the same scale but still tell a "story".

My lot are eager for their regular Winter excursion to Taupo... I'll say a 'qualified yes' assuming we can get suitable accoms.

As far as built-ups I'll not bring too many, mainly cars and a couple of aircraft that have not been seen before..
