November 16th and 17th is the Model Competition run by the Southern Model Club, which on the Sunday also includes a Swap and Sell, this year promises to be bigger than previous events and as this is the third year that the club is running this annual event. Interest has been shown from so many different groups that are afar as Adelaide, Geelong, Kilmore, Pakenham, Tarralgon and Frankston, even at the time of writing this post both phone and email inquiries asking for swap meet tables.
