Now that the Nationals are over, how did the weekend go? Googled IPMS Auckland's site and there is still no information posted.

Hi Jeff

I attended the show on the Sunday.

I did not enter anything.

There was a good standard of models on show.

The venue was not bad once you found it. To frank it was not the easiest to find.

My club AMPS did well Lance Whitford got Best Military Vehicle with his M10 Tank Destroyer and another AMPS member Paul got two firsts and a second.

I personally enjoyed it.

Regards

Sean

Sorry I did not personally get any pictures.

Maybe someone else did.

Had a look again last night and there's still nothing available on the IPMS Auckland website, unfortunately.
I haven't spoken to the IPMS Dunedin rep who went to the show since last month, but I'll see if Brent has any photos to post on our site.

I tried posting this in the New Zealand area but it ended up in California! So I'm trying this approach. Apologies in advance for hi-jacking this old thread.

2007 Scale Models Expo and IPMS NZ Nationals coming soon (12-13 May).

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scalemodelsexpo/

See pics here from the 2005 Scale Models Expo showing about 10% of the over 1000 models on display and competition;

Unfortunately you need to have a yahoo ID and sign up to see them, sorry.

Scale Models Expo 2007 is shaping up to be even better!

Cheers
Richard Alexander

PS: I also tried uploading a couple of photos but it wouldn't let me

Hi Richard, good to see you in Armorama. To post pictures you can log in to http://photos.kitmaker.net/ and set up an account using your username and password - once you've uploaded some photos they can be posted here by copying the image address and pasting them using the [img icon;

.

Alternatively if you have a Photobucket account or similar it should also be possible to post photos.

URLs can be posted using the [url] or [url=

In the meantime I'll post your info over on IPMS Dunedin's Yahoo Groups site and see how that goes.

Cheers.

Welcome to the site Richard,
