24th Slovenian Nationals

November 20, 2017 · in Show Reports · · 15 · 2.4K

Every year in mid November, slovenian modellers gather for the annual Nationals, this time for the 24th time in a row. The event is one day event, situated a walking distance away from the old centre of Ljubljana. Slovenian modelling scene really is small comparing to the big modelling nations, with about 30 seroius modellers, 4 clubs and 3 modelling competitions organised each year. We are fortunate enough that modellers from other countries join every year, and this year we had competitors from Croatia, Italy, Hungary and from Czech republic as well. Hopefully the will grow bigger each year, so reserve your date for next year's 25th edition of Slovenian Nationals. We hope to see you there!

*This are just some of the models from the competition, just the ones that caught my eye...

  5. Grega, thanks for posting this, there's some real talent on display. Also, I leaned something, I had no idea Rumania had Chinese built Il28s. Interesting scheme, too.

  7. Small show. Good models.
    Thanks for posting this. I'll definitely consider going there next year. I love these smaller events and I haven't been to Ljubjana yet.

  8. Extremely high density of high quality models!
    I love those tiny gliders! I've seen that kit before but never saw completed one in that quality

    • He made plenty of them. Last year he presented three slovenian ones based on those one, but they were almost entirely scratch built. And they are in 72scale...

  9. Lovely show with great models. Thank you for sharing your photos Grega.
