|IPMS Brasil 2018 - XXXII Brazilian
Plastic Modeling National Convention
Here´s a photo report on IPMS Brasil 2018 - the XXXII Brazilian Plastic Modeling National Convention, held during December 8-9 at São Paulo.The convention was put out by the competent IPMS-Brazil, through it GPPSD Chapter. I always say that nothing beats the feeling of being in a modeling convention hosted in a Brazilian Air Force facility surrounded by aircraft and historic hangars... As usual, it was a great, well organized convention. IPMS President Guilherme de Castro and the organizing comitee must be congratulated again.
The show started on Saturday. We started with a trip to the local hobby shops with my friends Sandro, Nei and Rodrigo, where my credit card took a serious hit... Then we headed to the show, where I was pleasantly surprised by a good number of vendors. I found supplies, books and kits for reasonable prices and a few bargains. We ended the night listening a live Dixie Jazz show in confortable pub.
On Sunday, to the show again. We met several friends from all over the country. It was a real blast to see lots of pals from old times. The level of the models was high, in general.
didn't have time to take many photos. I prefer talking to people these
days. Anyway, I organized them in 6 groups, so be warned that some of
contain entries of several sub-categories. I haven't sharpened the
pics, and I avoided the use of flash light as much as possible in order
to preserve the natural color of the models (some may be a bit dark).
So, if you have interest in any photo in a larger resolution, drop me a
line. As for the winners, I suppose the IPMS-Brazil will be publishing
the listing and a more comprehensive photo report soon on their web-page. Enjoy, and please report any bugs!
