Looking for model shows.
Posted by smokewagon on Friday, November 11, 2016 5:05 PM

Does anybody know of any model shows in the NWOhio area? From Toledo Ohio to Ft. Wayne Indiana?

Also, are there any modeling clubs within these areas that anyone knows about?

 

Thanks,

Smokewagon.

If were you I would also post your message/question on other model car forums as well, and you'll have a better chance of getting some replies.

You are just about the end of model show season for this year.  The NNL was in Toledo a month ago, a big show was this past Sunday in Detroit.  There will be a contest in Columbus, OH in March & the Indy area in May. Keep checking the coming events here & on other forums also Facebook is a good place to find shows.

This posting caught my eye and I hope nobody minds if I piggyback and ask the same question about eastern and central VA. There doesn't seem to be much interest in this area.

 Don't know how far you would want to travel, but there is a good show in Roanoke.  Never been to it, but several of the builders from there attend the annual Carolina Kustom Modelers show in Winston-Salem, NC - also another good show.  I have heard of some shows in the DelMarVa area, but am not familiar with any of them.  Hope this helps a little bit.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!
