Stefanikovo kridlo 2017, Ivanka pri Dunaji, Slovakia
On 6th May it was sunny beautiful day and I was presenting my recent kits in Ivanka pri Dunaji, where a local show named after famous pilot, politican and Tschechoslovakia founder was hold - Stefanikovo kridlo (Stefanik's wing).
The show is quite small, but full of exellent kits, good mood, smiles and local caffe was just with one word - amazing!
In case you live near there in Slovakia, Austria, Hungary or Czechia, this is definitely recommeded for your visit. Everything was well organized, with no delays, everybody was very helpful and friendly.
After I decided to put my Phantom into scoring contest, I found out that there is already 5 or 6 very nice kits and all my courage and hope was off.
I was just praying for some good but not last place 🙂 ...
However, the weather was very nice and we enjoyed the day with coffe, cakes, big toasts and relax under the pines in their gently casted shadow.
In the end, even if I did not expect any award, I got five for 4 kits (Hawkeye, Phantom, Thunderbolt and Super Sabre)! The Thunderbolt photo here is not mine, it is built by Martin Jursa, one of great modellers in Slovakia.
For me, the biggest surprise came when my Phantom got 2nd place in scoring contest...
I left the show excited, motivated to build even better my next builds to be able bring some new and beautiful kit next year.
My big thanks go to organizers and all sponsors for valuable prizes!
