Modelshow Europe 2013

16 March 2013

Saturday, March 16, 2013 the 22st Modelshow Europe was held in the flowerauction "Plantion" nearby the city Ede in the Netherlands.

This year was the first time I presented and did some promotion for the magazine BAGGERMODELLE.

On this special exhibition one can see all kinds of miniatures and model construction projects in the field of earthmoving, cranes and heavy transport. This exhibition is unique by its grand design and the only one in Europe.

Many collectors and builders show their (rebuilt and/or radio controlled) models. Also a wide range of miniatures and related components for the model which are offered for sale.

Brotherly surrounded by my friends, Ad Gevers, Huub van Dijk (Bouwmachines van Toen & Bouwmachines van Nu), Gertjan Veld & Jack Schrijen and Anton Monshouwer & Gilbert Ploegmakers.

Spoken to lots of people, purchased the necessary Caterpillar scale models, seen some amazing pieces of custom modelling: The day flew by!

Looking forward to next years
