ScaleACT & COVID-19

UPDATE: JUNE 2020: ScaleACT-20 is on!
As of June 2020, the Committee is planning for ScaleACT-20 to proceed.

November 14th~15th is the time, Canberra is the place! 🙂

There will be many changes to the way the weekend is run to cater for the limitations on public gatherings the virus has imposed, but we are working through the best and safest way to hold the comp and weekend and the current plan is to Go!

Our primary concern will be the health and safety of our members and guests, and we will be complying with any official health directives as appropriate.

If you have any questions or comments about ScaleACT-20, please contact us via our email address

Thank you for your continuing interest in our show, and with luck we’ll see you as planned in November!

All the best, please stay safe and healthy, and enjoy the opportunity for modelling!

Until then – here is some information from previous ScaleACT’s to keep you busy!

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”.
