The 2016 Scale Models Expo is for the whole family to enjoy, with scale model displays, competitions, trade stalls and fun activities. You’ll find hundreds of awesome miniature (and not so miniature) creations on show, including models of the latest jets, historic fighter planes, heavy haul trucks, giant robots, armoured vehicles, spacecraft, classic racing cars and many more.

A big part of the Expo has always been the public competition and this year we are also hosting the International Plastic Modellers' Society NZ National Competition, where many of the country’s best model-makers will battle it out for the top spot. Take the opportunity to inspect the entries up close and see the skill and dedication that goes into creating these detailed works of art.

We’re sure kids will enjoy seeing all the models on display, but the Expo isn’t just about looking. We also have some great ways for them to get involved:

We are giving away free Project Airfix aircraft kits with child tickets (and to children entering under a family ticket). We have plenty for both days but they're sure to run out eventually so get in early.

We are also running four "build-a-kit" sessions, where kids can build Airfix kits with advice and guidance from our experienced junior and adult members. There are ten places at each session, and we'll provide the kits, glue and tools.
