On the way to the 2018 Australian Model Expo

I realised there is no "safe" way to transport my latest build. The Seahorse is so delicate, with so many frail bits that poke out at the sides, that I haven't been able to come up with any packaging to place it in for transport. Plus, let's not forget it is mounted on what are effectively two bouncy springs! So here it is, on its way to the 2018 Australian Model Expo.

Transporting my scratch built model to the 2018 Australian Model Expo
God, look at how rubbish my car is...

I've got my emergency repair kit with me: CA glue, tweezers, touch-up paint, paintbrush, toothpicks.

It's an hour's drive from my home. Fingers crossed we make it in one piece.




Yes, those are very bouncy springs it is mounted on. We made it around the very first corner before the vigorous bouncing made the cabin topple off, and the lighthouse broke apart. Sigh...


  1. Ye gods.... not too much damage, I hope. Safe trip, mate and can't wait to see pictures of it in situ. Oh, good luck with the contest, too!

  2. Best of luck with your model, Dave.
    It really deserves to win!

  3. Good speed for the competition. It's been inspirational.
