On Sunday, May 7th, 2023, the "Wijchense Miniature meeting" was organized for the very first time. At the initiative of Matthew Arntz, this new meeting was added to the calendar for Agricultural, Earthmoving and Transport miniatures in both 1:32 and 1:50th scale.
The "Wijchense Miniature meeting" was held from 10:00 to 16:00 in party and conference center "Verploegen" Woezikstraat 100 in Wijchen, The Netherland. Plenty of exhibition space, free parking and excellent accessibility from all directions.
Gert Jan and Wouter jointly manned their booth with the latest Diecast Masters scale models, promotion for Laster & Bagger magazine and numerous custom (3D) projects on display.
Especially for custom builders, PO Miniatuurbouw had an extensive range of 3D printed agricultural (1:32) and earthmoving (1:50) kits and parts.
Our friends Eric & Diana from GiftDigger.com, the webshop with cool and fun products, where also present with a well-stocked stand. From the famous "Zandhaas" scarf uptill the Wrecking Ball in 1:50th scale was sold quickly.
Absolute compliments to initiative taker Matthew! Together with his family he set up a perfectly organized meeting and with more than 500 visitors you can say SUCCESSFUL! We went home satisfied after a super event complete with a street band performance (!) and a goody bag. We are already looking forward to the date in 2024!
Now everyone can enjoy the afterglow with the photos and YouTube footage!
