It was a grey cold Sunday in Ajax this past Sunday. It made it a perfect day to be indoors at a model show. Ajax is a small city just east of Toronto and has hosted this how for 24 years now. I've been attending this show for about 15 years and can state it is a great venue.

On arrival at J Clarke Richardson Collegiate Auditorium you could see a huge expanse of vendors wrapped around the room. There were quite a few deals to be had on the airliner kit side including a Revell L10-11 cutaway I managed to get for . There were over 350 models on the tables of all types. To top it off the there was the famous buffet available for lunch which was prepared by the students of the school.

There were a lot of the Usual Toronto area Airliner model builders attending including John Wong, Tim Harrison, Lorenzo Vitali, Alex Kung, Derek Pennington and Sameer Haqqi to mention a few. I counted about 15 models in the Civil and Airliner categories. It was quite a good turnout.

I was able to take a few photos of the civil /Airliner models. So here they are with appropriate captions.
I hope you enjoy them. I wasn't able to get every builders name where noted.
