ModelExpo 08 Open 2018

April 8, 2018 · in Show Reports · · 27 Comments

Today I spent a few hours at the local IPMS show, ModelExpo 08 Open. Lots of wonderful models, some very unique others not so very but still very skillfully made. For various reasons I chose not to participate with any models this year but enjoyed the show nevertheless. Great to see a number of friends from other parts of and others coming over from neighbouring countries. Mr iModeler himself, Martin Waligorski, looked happy among all display tables. A separate hall filled with vendors and a café kept visitors happy and refueled when they needed a break.

  1. So very many outstanding entries pictured here, one doesn't quite know just where to begin with all the accolades...thanks very much for sharing your trip and photos.

  2. 'Liked' - with a passion. What a great collection, with some of my favourite subjects; Jules Verne's Nautilus, Wurgers, Schwalbes, dios to die for, steampunk, sci-if, and that Sabre...gorgeous.

    Thanks, Stellan!

  3. V cool selection- thanks for posting!

  4. Thanks for posting this. We IPMS-Stockholm members haven't been very good at posting pictures of our own event here on imodeler. It was about time somebody did it.
    Great pictures!

    • Hmm have you checked for photos from the event previus years? iModeler isn´t that old so we have not had much chance to fail posting photos... Thanks, Ulf. Very nice to see you again. Way too seldom we see one another these days.

  5. @Ulf 🙂
    @Stellan: Thanks for posting, there are some really nice models here! I certainly think the majority is worth being posted here on imodeler...

  6. Thanks Stellan, more great modelling on display !

  7. Lots of really nice stuff there, but I'm particularly knocked out by the Walrus rescue diorama and the damaged B-17. But what I really want to know is, how did that guy get a 1:1 Kawasaki motorcycle up on the table?

  8. Thanks for sharing your pics Stellan. Fantastic work on display on this show.

  9. Well needless to say I especially liked the final pic 😆 Thanks for sharing!
