|2nd Open Serra-Sul de
Caxias do Sul, RS, Brazil.
visitors, kids and enthusiasts
year the 2nd Open
Serra-Sul kept the tradition of the previous one, as well as the
modeling expositions before them. The staff organized a nice
display, with models of all kinds and levels, from juniors to pros.
Besides the models, I presented a lecture on 'Modeling contests: pros, cons, judging and the Brazilian context'.
It was a great opportunity to discuss contradictory aspects of modeling
contests with several modeleres. I had a great time and, more
important, could talk to several friends from all over the state. We
have folks from other parts of the country as well, and I'm convinced
the 3rd edition will be even larger...
number of judges this year was ridiculously small, making my saturday
night a tough one. In the end, everything regarding judging went
smoothly. I was pretty sure the level of the models this year was above
the previous one, and I expect to see the models of a few masters in
2015 who chickened this year... you know who you are.
to all the Serra-Sull organizing staff for putting out such a nice event. Good show, boys... Here are some photos I took:
The Best of the Show deservely went to Alaerte Machado, from Caxias do Sul, with his superb 75mm Mohawk:
See you in 2015...
