The Hawkesbury River bridge at the Perth Show
Well after some hard work by the group, we managed to have a reasonable show in Perth this year. Set up went well with no major issues. After some heart ache late on Friday night with AMRA having a care factor of zero towards the exhibitors, Peter and Luke managed to sort out the barricading arrangements so that the Cockburn club could exhibit. This was something that AMRA should have gotten right. Apart from the usual bias in the judging towards member layouts, we did manage to come second in the "Jack Standbridge" trophy (as judged by fellow modellers). This was a great achievement for Rodney as this was his first layout he had built himself. Below are some photos. I will post up some vids on my YouTube page.
