A word about the day from the competition organiser, coordinator and chief judge:
Rene de Koning

The inaugural Eagles Day 2004 Plastic Scale Aircraft Competition and Exhibition, held on Sunday 24 October 2004, attracted a total of 72 entries across the 9 categories available. As expected the small, medium and large scale aircraft categories contained the majority of entries, however, both the miscellaneous and diorama categories were also well represented containing an interesting and diverse range subjects. All of the entries were finished to a very high standard, which made the task of deciding the place getters quite a challenging exercise for the judges.  With four traders in attendance, the Victorian Hobby Centre, Hobby HQ, Hyland's Bookshop and Red Roo models, there was also an opportunity to browse through a range of modelling products as well as pick up a few bargains on the day. Displays were also mounted by Axis Eagles and the Whittlesea and Districts Scale Model Club, which attracted a lot of interested and admiring onlookers. 

There were also facilities available to grab a drink and something to eat as well as to sit down and catch-up with friends or fellow modellers - which greatly contributed to the relaxed atmosphere on the day. Special thanks must go to IPMS Australia (Inc) for its support of the event and to all of our sponsors, the Victorian Hobby Centre, Hobby HQ, Aeroworks, High Planes Models, Red Roo Models, John Baxter Publications, Hearns Hobbies, Albury Hobby Centre, Model Art Australia, Hyland's Bookshop and Toy & Hobby Australia. It is only because of their support and the efforts of those who participated that Eagles Day 2004 was such a success. 

We certainly hope to see you all again in 2005.
