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 15 years, in average 1200 – 1.300 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 like Japan, Taiwan or Canada 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.
We are thanking You for visiting us – this year the 20th MOSON MODEL Show – and we hope that all of You returned home with lots of good experiences and memories!
Unfortunately we have to – this hopefully memorable weekend – follow up with an unpleasant news: one of our main organizers, Hara „Elektro” István passed away on 18th April 2016. He was coordinating the electronic and on-site model registrations; evaluating the judging results, printing diplomas and dealt with the competition results list for years here on the Moson show.
This Monday he was about sending the competition results so that they can be included in our website. This is no longer important, it can wait (really can wait…). During the past years, he has become an indispensable person of the Hungarian scale modelling. He was carrying on his back the administration of numerous modelling events. This work is not spectacular, but very ungrateful. With his calmness and sense of humour he helped us through lots of conflicts, and showed us many times a mirror via his camera photos.
Because of his sudden death we would kindly ask everyone for a little patience and understanding; we will try as soon as possible to publish the highly anticipated results!
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!
