HobsonsBay 2011

Just left the Hall at 5.00 pm

The Exhibition is all set up and it is damn good!!
I think Jamie said in another thread that Hobson's was Victoria's biggest, Well after this Easter it might be the best.

Without doubt this is the one not to miss!

Despite my saying he is not coming :(
Eric ex Victoria Hobby Center has recovered enough from his op to come along.
Talk about a gutsy bloke :) Come along you will not be disapointed.
I don't often rave about things I am associated with, this time it deserves a rave!

More layouts than I have seen before, I am certain some people will be negative, but most of you are not going to regret your day here, End of line hobbies have brought hundreds of car carriers over in brass can't think of the codes but he has done 3 versions of the Victorian 65 foot car wagons. As well the NSW and SAR versions... did I say brass???? And they have clips that allow you to glue as well as solder them up. Absolutely perfect kits I bought 10 of them :)
They built them in three versions The first two had heavy bridge supports and were over engineered So the rest were built with thinner struts Then of course some were sheeted solid sides. All three are available Did I tell you they were etched brass? :)
$109 and a magnificent kit $175 rtr (but a waiting list a year long)
The Auscision mystery model? Don't know.
Austrains have limited 4 wheeler sets of 3 vehicles found in the trailer (previously thought to be sold out. Alas no more Y Classes :(
Come and see :)
Cheers
Rod

I cannot remember all the layouts, but Leoplod and

Azza, I'm pretty sure Tom was the tall guy selling tickets at the front :lol:

Was a good expo, ended up having a mini Victrainz meet, myself, Jamie, Zec and Azza. Soryy I kept loosing you guys. Picked up myself 'The Victorian Year in Steam 2008' on DVD but know I'm being presured to start my model which means that I gotta start saving up, but TS12 is the current priority.

Cheers
Timo
