Best on show

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 24 August 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Planes, trains - and of course automobiles! I finish the series with a table top of fast cars.

The judges have a tough job here. This sleek and shiny selection of model cars was on show at the ACT Scale Modellers’ Society annual event.
