Discussion for exhibition: Forum


The exhibition of Club “Scalemodels-BG” is winning recognition as one of the most valuable hobby events in the country. And in the opinion of many modelers is the best scale models exhibition in Bulgaria. A significant amount of routine could be observed in the actions of the organizers. Their ever improving skills contributed to the well going of all the stages of the exhibition- starting from accepting and registering all the participating models all the way to handing the rewards of the winners.

The members of the jury had an extremely difficult time evaluating the best from all the exhibited models due to the exceptionally high level of all the participants. However, they all shared an opinion that it is a pleasure and a privilege to have such good scale models to evaluate.

For the fans of statistics we would like to illustrate the exhibition in a few numbers:

54 modelers participated from the following countries (alphabetically ordered):
- Bulgaria - 43
- Greece - 3
- Romania - 1
- Serbia - 7

As for the models, there were 229 participants coming from the countries as follows:
- Bulgaria- 158
- Greece - 25
- Romania - 6
- Serbia - 40

Alongside the scale models exhibition our colleagues from organized their own one, which presented 80 paper models.

There was media coverage by the leading news outlets including an announce in the main bTV news broadcast, as well as reportage from HobbyTV with whom our Club has traditionally kept friendly relations.

As a conclusion we can say that we are glad to have had a well-organized exhibition on a good European level. It was the lack of mediocre models which consolidated the name of Club “Scalemodels-BG” as a synonym for the best scale modeling Bulgaria has to offer.

We would like to thank all the people without whose energy and ideas the event wouldn’t have achieved such a success. We would also like to thank every single participant and visitor for adding sense and meaning to all our efforts.

The rewards were provided by AIRFIX and the "AERO" magazine.

We would like to congratulate all the winners and wish everyone more and even better models for our exhibition next year.
