Model Expo

Today whilst heading to Wellington, to take my daughter back home after a weekend visit, I called into the Model Expo which was being held in Lower Hutt. Here are some of the photos I took.
This R series Mack was perfect in every detail, except for.........

......... a spelling mistake in the company name on the door!

Look at the detail in this close up of a De Havilland Mosquito.

Compare this model with a real rig from the same company in my blog of 18th July.

Five axle Western Star mixer could be the real thing if there wasn't a huge person in the background.

Another Western Star, this time an articulated unit.

A Peter Baker Scania, just like the real thing.

Nice Mini-Cooper. Look at those twin carbs.

There were also some working train sets on display. This replica of a German train carried 50 Volkswagens.

Another view of the same train.

My favourite of the show. Compare with the example on my blog of August 4th.

This little Alfa even had "Orange Peel" paint, just like the real thing.

Dinos are one of my favourites from the Ferrari stable.
