Contest/Swap Meet
Posted by High octane on Saturday, March 01, 2014 9:23 AM

There's a really nice model contest and swap meet next Sunday (March 9th) from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cedarville , Illinois. I was there last year and was really impressed. Lots of vendors and really nice builds on the contest tables. I hope to be there myself weather permitting. Last year the weather could have been a lot better.

Are you taking a camera?

Sorry Patrick, as I rarely take model photos and car photos at cruise nights also. I only sling my camera strap at car shows and at the drag strip. If you're on the Spotlight Hobbies board, a guy by the name of Marty will be postin' pics of this event.

There will be a number of modelers at this swap meet/contest from northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. A lot of them great model builders and also have their work published in Scale Auto as well as the "other magazine." If you can, check this event out as it seems to be growing every year.

I've looked on the message board but there is no mention of model car shows?

Thought you would like those pics as Marty also contributes great pics every Friday nite as well. I've been on that board for awhile now and it's a lot of fun.
