|Xtreme Modeling Latin America 2019|
Here are fome photos of the 1sth Xtreme Modeling Latin America, organized by the UPPA modeling club, and held at Porto Alegre, Brazil.
modelers from Southern Brazil have been always complaining that we have
to travel with our models to other states to attend major modeling
contests, that our contests do not attract many modelers from other
states, bla bla bla...
Well, no more.
What a good event it was. It was a very well laid show, with several vendors - something rare in our area -, and many, many models (I was told 450). We had the chance to see old friends again and make new ones, as well as finally put faces to forum names. A good number of modelers came from other states. It was nice to see many kids attending the competition, and even nicer to see the wifes and girlfriends checking out. Really nice...
have the impression that the level of craftmanship was the highest
of all events I had opportunity to attend in the region. The
competition was very tough in most
categories. Although I was quite disappointed with the number of
entries in AFV, both large and small scale, civilian vehicles
and figures categories showed very high standard entries.
Congratulations to all the organizing staff and the UPPA committee.
I haven't bothered to organize the photos below by categories. I kinda
grouped them more to organize myself than anything else. Of course
there are several models missing, but the photos below will give you an
idea of the show.
