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 – 1500 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.
