Here are a few of the displays that caught my eye at the NZAME convention 2016...
One-twelfth scale Kiwiana villa by Maureen Nelson:(I enjoyed seeing some vernacular architecture, and it reminded me of the bay villa I was working on before I left New Zealand, especially as the person who built it had a stall at convention, and a photo of my (old) house in his brag book, still!)
Also in one-twelfth scale, this distressed villa by Catherine Durbridge (North Shore Miniatures):
Fancy chairs in one-twelfth scale by Helen Palenski (North Shore, Auckland), created at a workshop in the USA:
One-twelfth scale 'Manca^e' by Alison Ede (North Shore Miniatures, Weenie's Sunday School):
The contents were made from various electrical bits and bobswhich were listed in front of the display:
This opulent one-twelfth scale aquarium room was made by John Duff (Lower Hutt Miniature Makers):(I loved this butler tray in the corner...)
Displayed next to it was this Brooke Tucker oriental room (Maker unknown)
More my style was this one-twelth scale retro Kiwi caravan by Bev Bunker (Nelson Miniatures Club):
(which really was a kiwi caravan!)
Rio Cox (Lower Hutt Miniature Makers) made this one-tweflth scale scene called Monday lunch in Tuscany:
this one, entitled My favourite view:
