Euro Model Expo in Lingen, Germany
On the 24th and 25th of March the EME took place in Lingen in northwestern part of Germany. It was organised by Berthold Tacke, the former chief editor of ModelFan, the main German language modeling magazine. The idea was to create a big modeling event in Germany, that would also attract modellers from the neighboring countries. There are many modeling shows in Germany, but up until now there has been no attempt to organize a really big one.
It seems that Berthold was very successful in doing this. Modellers from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Britain, Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark were present.
Two big halls were filled with vendors and club stands. There was also a competition, where about 150 models took part. All in all there were probably some 2000 models to be seen. Of course there were also workshops and lectures by prominent modellers on building- and painting techniques.
The picture gallery below does not attempt to be representative of the wealth of models exhibited. I just took snap shots of the models that happened to catch my eye. I do hope however, that they will give you an impression of the the quality and diversity of the exhibition.
Enjoy the pictures.
Nest year, EME will take place the 24. and 25. of March 2018
