Scale Models Expo 2016

We are hosting a Scale Models Expo on ANZAC weekend, April 23-24 2016 at the Expressions Arts & Entertainment Centre in Upper Hutt, Wellington.

The Expo is for the whole family to enjoy, with scale model displays, competitions, trade stalls, demonstrations 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 IPMS New Zealand Nationals, where many of the country’s best model-makers will battle it out for top honours. Take the opportunity to inspect the entries up close and see the skill and dedication that goes into creating these detailed works of art.
