NNL West 2020 Report
Posted by gbk1 on Monday, January 27, 2020 3:19 PM

Below I’ve posted a few pics from this year’s NNL West which took place last Saturday, 01/24/2020. Between a substandard camera I’ve sworn not to use again and a premature battery drain, I landed up taking only a few pictures, many of them of questionable quality, for which I apologize. Additional photos can be found here: https://ibb.co/album/eAWiQa

NNL West 2020 was an interesting show with the usual vast selection of beautifully built models, making the photo debacle especially frustrating. The number of models actually declined somewhat, but was still enormous at close to 1,000. But, as I said, the quality was ever present. There were much fewer repeats from prior years which explains part of the decline. The other influence was almost certainly the model car show in Pasadena attached to the Grand National Roadster Show the following day, which kept some of the SoCal regulars away.

But the positive aspects far overshadowed the car-count decline. For example the vendor tables were completely sold out, something I can’t recall happening in several years. And there were many new vendors and vendors who had been new last year and were back once again. Even more importantly, the atmosphere was vibrant and dynamic with the aisles crowded with modelers and visitors engaged in animated conversation throughout the day, without the usual decline after lunch. And vendors appeared to be doing very well, too.

I hope to finally get back to the level of photographs I used to be able to provide when I go back next year. In the meantime thanks to all my modeling friends, new and old, who made this year's NNL West so enjoyable.
B.
