Scale Model Challenge 2013

Dear friends,

As always, we would like to inform you way ahead about another edition of van Scale Model Challenge (SMC). This 7th SMC show will be held on Sunday October 13, at NH Conference Centre Koningshof, Veldhoven, The Netherlands.


With the addition of another hall, this year’s event has grown to 5.800 square meters. In cooperation with the Dutch NVM modeling society we present an additional event : Youth and Modeling which will also bring lots of interesting stuff for the “older youth”.

SMC 2013 will be hosting again some of the finest top modelers to show you their techniques, tips and tricks of the trade: Radek Pituch (PL), Pepa Saavedra (E) , Fernando Ruiz (E), José Brito (P) and our steady value by now: Jay Laverty (GB).

We thought that the competition also needed some adjustments: we amended the civilian classes and the diorama classes are no longer limited to military subjects.
For aircraft modelers we have increased the number of classes considerably and we hope to meet the expectations and requirements of this group of modelers even better than before.

For figure painters we organize a speed painting contest: painting against the clock. Fun, educational and sometimes hilarious. And you do not need to be a top ace painter to join in. Put any doubts aside and join in.
The Speed Painting contest at SMC 2013 is made possible by Heroes and Villains Miniatures from Spain.

We invite all clubs to take part in the show by registering their club stands or show table. You can use the online registration form for that, which is available on our website. Don’t wait too long, as space is limited.

As for the trade section of the show, we are well on our way of being fully booked and we are happy to say that we have the usual large variety of traders present and several newcomers and surprises coming up.
For those that are always on the look for a good deal or vintage kits: fear no more, we have created extra space in the Bargain Corner for specialized traders and private sellers to cater your needs. Interested in taking a stand at the bargain corner: check the website.

So there areplenty of reasons to note 13th October on the calendar.

Go to www.scalemodelfactory.nl for more information.

For all you Facebookers out there; check out our SMC 2013 Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/451392344909499/, where we will post the most updated info about the show, the traders and other matters concerning SMC 2013.

See you there!

SMC Summer update

Hello all,

We would like to share the latest news in our SMC 2013 pre-summer update.

This year’s event will be breaking some records in the show’s history.
First of all, it’ll be bigger than we ever anticipated. SMC grows from 4.500 to 5.800 square meters. This is partly due to a 33% increase of attending clubs and a list of traders that currently counts 86 names from 12 countries and offers 20% more trade space than in the previous show.
The list of traders and attending clubs are published on our website and so is the new floor plan

The contest has been revised and split up into a figure competition and a non-figure competition, each with its own Best in Show Award.

We also have a Speed Painting Contest…with a humorous twist. You’re welcome to join, but there are only a limited number of seats available. So don’t hesitate to register for one of this year’s highlights, and fill out the form on our website.
The company Heroes & Villains from Spain supports this contest and provides the prizes for the winner.

In a simultaneous event, Youth & Scale Model Technique, visitors will be introduced to technical innovations and techniques that apply to the scale model hobby: laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC milling and there will be plenty of opportunities to actually put techniques into practice yourself on this interactive event.

We will also present the “Game Zone”, an area dedicated to table top gaming with demo games and painting demos by clubs and with traders that cater for table top gamers and figure painters alike.

Pre-registrations for the contest get a discount on the fee, so why not take advantage of our offer? Please go the website and register your models now.

On our website you can find all information about the show, the venue and its hotel accommodations and much more. Go to www.scalemodelfactory.nl
