The Modellers of Ballarat are a diverse group of central Victorian’s scale modellers who meet monthly in Ballarat Victoria to share modelling tips, finished models, current works in progress and a sense of humour. The Modellers of Ballarat (MOB) is an incorporated association and operated under the model rules presented in the Associations Incorporation Regulations, 1998.

What we do

We get together each month to show our models (finished and in progress) – see Monthly Meetings below. Additionally each year we aim to hold an annual show which raises money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Australia. The annual show is usually held during April each year.
