|XXI Open GPC de Plastimodelismo|
Here are 200+ photos of the 17th Campinas Plastic Modeling Group Open convention, held at Valinhos, Brazil.
Well, we had a blast! Again! Everytime I go there I can't find words to translate how nice this particular model show is. It was a very well laid show, with several vendors, well lit tables and many, many models (I was told 800). We had the chance to see old friends again and make new ones, as well as finally put faces to forum names. It was nice to see many kids attending the competition, and even nicer to see the wifes of local club members helping out during the registration, raflle and other important activities. Really nice...
I have the impression that the level of craftmanship is raising year after year. This year the competition was very tough in most categories. Although I was quite disappointed with the number of entries in AFV, both large and small scale, naval and civilian vehicles showed very high standard models. Congratulations to all the organizing staff and the GPC committee.
Now, I haven't bothered to organize the photos below by categories. I kinda grouped them more to organize myself than anything else, but it will give you a good idea of the show. They are reasonably in order like: wings, worms, dios, figures, cars & bikes, ships, general views and people.
