20th Plastic model show – Nitra’s Major Grand Prix
October 20, 2014 in Show Reports
Shiny weather, gentle temperature and golden leafs falling from the trees … and many many nice models, that was Saturday in Nitra, Slovakia, where the local club MK ZOBOR held 20th Nitra’s Major Grand Prix.
Visitor could see over 520 of plastic models and more than 300 of paper models from Slovakia, Czech, Poland, Hungary and other countries, which is a new record in the history of the competition! One of the most impressive models was 1:2 Terminator model made from the paper and over 1 m high port crane, visible from any place in the hall… We were very happy to welcome also very talented juniors with their first kits and encourage them to build next ones, bring them next year and – some day – become a famous modeller!
For me, this was the first time to try the judge role and I was a bit nervous as the tables were becoming more and more full of various and excellent kits. After all, I know we did the best and chose the models which were on the top.
I hope that we welcome some of the competitors here soon, and their excellent builds too.
And, if somebody is reading the article and would like to come next year, please do so, you are very welcome! And if you are a carrier aircraft enthusiast like me, please bring your models for sure. Now please enjoy few photos from the competition.
For me personally the highlights were:
