ScaleACT is the ACTSMS Annual Competition and Exhibition.

ScaleACT-19 was held over the weekend of 9th ~ 10th November 2019 at Kaleen High School and was our biggest and best event yet with over 560 (566 to be exact) models entered and huge numbers of visitors.

The dust is still settling after ScaleACT-19 but we have commenced planning ScaleACT-20, specifically, we can announce the subjects for our annual Special Competitions, the Kittyhawk Cup, Sentinel Shield and Grail!

Special RAAF award for Junior modellers
The RAAF Association (ACT Branch) is offering a special juniors (<13yrs) award. If a junior enters a model of an RAAF subject, they will be in the running for a special prize (one prize only will be available, and the choice of the winner will be made by our special guest RAAF Association judge).
If no juniors enter an appropriate RAAF model, the prize will instead become part of the “Best RAAF Model in Show”.
