The third Queensland Scale Model Muster will be held at the Tin Can Bay Model Flying Club’s field on Kidd Straight on Saturday and Sunday, September 30 and October 1.

As this year is the 80th anniversary of the Piper Cub, a special section will be held to commemorate this historic occasion.

The Scale Model Muster is for a model of any type of aeroplane built to scale, and features planes from the first flight to the present day. Prizes will be awarded for best monoplane (single wing), biplane (double wing), and Piper Cub. These will be judged by both the pilots themselves and the public.

Minimum sizes are enforced for the planes to give the public the best exhibition of models. Piper Cubs must be 40 inches or over, biplanes 60 inches and other monoplanes 72 inches.

Major sponsors are Top Notch Energy (John Gunn), and Shedzone (David Garle). Both these sponsors have been great supporters of the club for some time and this is much appreciated by the members.

Once again the public will be catered for with a full canteen operating both days with hot food and cold drinks. Admission is by gold coin donation.

This is a great family day out and is growing to be a major event on the Queensland model aircraft calendar.
