The executive decided to award three Aus7 Modellers Group Awards at the recent Aus7 Forum. The last time these awards had been handed to recipients was in 2006 however with the recent retirement of three O-scale manufacturers it was decided to hand three very deserving winners the awards for 2015. So we’ve made up for the absence of a winners for a few years anyway.
Peter Krause, proprietor of O-Aust Kits, Dave Morris and Chris Harris, joint proprietors of Waratah Model Railway Co are all well deserving of the recognition and seemed genuinely surprised to have the awards announced. Although they had all been warned that they had to attend!
Well done to all three and I’m sure all members share the executives’ feelings that these three are well deserving of this recognition. Happy retirement gents and let’s all hope you now get some time to do your own modelling.
