|IV Mostra Caxiense de
Plastic Modeling Exposition)
of Caxias Plastic Modeling Exposition was a great
surprise. Having missed the last year's one, I was willing to attend
this one since many friends live in the area. Considering the other
editions, I knew this one would be as great. The staff organized a nice
display, with models of all kinds and levels. This particular
exposition stands from the others because there is no competition - the
objective is to show/teach what plastic modeling is about to the
general public and, hopefully, attract some newcomers to our hobby.
Besides the models, there were workshops and demos so the public had
the chance to see how the models are done.
make a wonderful job there. I had only an hour to spare on the
exposition, but the attendence was really good, particularly for a cold
Sunday morning. It was nice to recognize models from friends that I saw
on the internet while living abroad. The joys of internet days - I met
the model even before meeting the author...
everybody who helped to organize the event. I'm looking forward to the
next year's edition. Here is a glimpse of the exposition:
