Event : International Model Contest 2005|
Published on June 05, 2005 | By Igor @ TMK
This international model contest & show was held on April 16-17, 2005 in Mosonmagyarovar, in the northern part of Hungary close to Austrian and Slovakian borders. The organization was made by the local model club based in the city of Mosonmagyarovar.
The show was again situated in the university building in centre of town. The building itself is quite old and this year it showed it's disadvantage. There were so many models on display, that models had to be displayed in several rooms downstairs and upstair. The table of truck models was situated on 2nd floor in a small room and the nearby passage was overcrowded by onlookers all the time.
Again there was a big lack of parking places.
Modellers came from Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and other countries. As expected, most of the models were aircraft and military stuff, trucks were again a minority. But it has to be said that there were more trucks on display than last year. It was nice to see some trucks models of Modellbauteam Dusseldorf.
The results of the competitions were announced on Sunday at lunch time. There were a lot of categories, but only one general category for trucks. Winners received trophies and diplomas.
Verdict : The show in Mosonymagyarovar was again a great experience. It was nice to see a lot of truck models which are very popular in Hungary. See you in 2006!
I made more than 200 photos, the best ones are featured below.
