Dear Modeler friends, Dear Visitors!
The Mosonmagyaróvár Modelling Club is the organizer of a model show and competition, that during it’s two decade history grew to an event that is one of Europe’s noted ones. The modellers can enter in various competition categories: AFV, aircraft, diorama, figure, civilian vehicles. In the past 20 years, in average 1300 – 1.500 models were displayed in over 40 categories. Thanks to the friendly relationships developed over the years and the optimal geographical location of the city in the heart of the continent, modellers living in the northern, southern, eastern and western part of Europe are meeting together here. As for the others coming ever from farther distances are always greatly welcomed.
By now it became a joint effort to organize this big show, so many hungarian modelling clubs are collaborating together and helping each other. Judging is done by teams of internationally acknowledged modellers coming from all around the continent. Of course this event is not only about modellers. Residents coming from the nearby places, family of the modellers find here numerous addition programmes and sights that they can select from during the weekend.

Competition category changes
A few years ago the model categories have been split between master and hobby categories. (Further information is available under the competition menu)
Opportunity for taking photos:
We are always delighted to see thousands of people visiting the Main hall and the auxiliary rooms on the 1st floor during the 2 day show. The huge crowd on the other hand make it difficult to take good photos of the models. For those that would like to take photos in piece, we are opening the gates on Sunday (23rd. April, 2017) from 7o’clock in the morning.
In 2016 in 62 competition categories (adult, junior, youngster, children) a total of 1.668 models were entered. (1.582 models in 2015) More than 560 modellers entered their models in the competition who arrived from 34 different countries. The majority of the visitors are coming from East-Central Europe but it is always a great news for us to learn that new and new modellers are deciding to take the long ride and visit our show from for example Australia, Belarussia, Brazil, Kazakhstan, China ot Taiwan. This year, thanks to the number of high quality models we gave a total of 396 awards (98 bronze, 117 silver and 181 gold). In addition model clubs, associations and private modellers showed their own collections in the show display tables.
In the name of the organizers, the Mosonmagyaróvár Modelling Club wishes good modelling, good health and thank everyone for honouring our event. We look forward to see You and your family for an unforgettable weekend!
