Out West Model Expo – Auckland – 17-18 November 2018

What

The Auckland Marklin Club presents a model expo for enthusiasts and all the family.

There will be 16 model train layouts from clubs throughout the region and from as far south as Bulls, making it the biggest train show in Auckland this year. Some layouts will be huge, spanning many metres and passing specially built scenes. The locomotives in operation range in size from a few centimetres to half a metre, reproducing the greatest machines of the world’s railways. Others will be small and intimate, table top size, with lots of fine detail. Children will be able to operate a table top train to see how it’s done.

Other types of modelling will be represented. The Auckland Meccano Guild will have a display. Mini-4WD vehicles will race in threes around a large circuit.

Trade stands will be there to supply modelling materials and enable any one to get started in their hobby. The Helensville Railway Museum will have a display.

Refreshments will be provided by Love Soup, with proceeds helping its charitable work in providing meals at community centres.

Pedestrian entry to the venue is from Te Atatu Road or from the carpark at the rear of the Centre. To get to the carpark, turn from Te Atatu Rd into Harbour View Rd at the roundabout, then take the first right into Sail Rock Rd.

Payment by EFTPOS or credit card will be accepted as well as cash.

You may have already been to one of our shows held at Waiuku, Devonport, Whangaparaoa and Westgate. This will be by far our biggest show yet.

2018 Dollhouses & Miniature Show & Sale – Palmerston North – 20 – 22 October 2018

What

Members of Miniature Clubs all over New Zealand bring their work together every 2 years and show it off. Doll Houses, Miniature items, Room Boxes.

The fascination of miniatures lies in viewing life made small. Most of the displays are in 12th scale ( 1 inch – 1 foot) but some are even smaller. We have a lot of talented miniaturists in this country and this is a chance to view their work altogether.

There is a completed doll house, which has been donated and worked on in a voluntary way, by members of the Lower Hutt and Kapiti Miniature Clubs. This is being raffled over the weekend. The exhibition is a large one and well worth the visit. The venue has a cafe on site and good parking and wheelchair access.

There are also sales tables of miniature items or tools if you want to get started on an absorbing hobby.

This event is hosted by the Lower Hutt Miniature Makers and the Palmerston North Miniaturists. The Lower Hutt Miniature Makers meet every third Saturday of the month. It is around 45 members strong.

They usually work on a workshop put together by one of the members. It could be making an item of furniture or small items to go into their small houses. It is a chance not only to meet with friends, but to learn new skills.

There are miniature clubs all over New Zealand. If you are interested please contact NZAME, the parent of all the clubs to find a club near you.
