  4. Hi John, Thanks for that insight. Seeing as how I really enjoy rubbing shoulders with modelers from all around the world I'd really love to visit the show in Telford and a couple of the other big shows in Europe one day!! I think the thing I enjoy about visiting the club tables is that I can often times speak to the actual builder of a model that catches my eye!! I just don't get that same chance at the shows here in the U.S.😧
  5. Like I said....I cannot be certain why there are not more Americans who don't attend the Shizuoka Hobby Show. Maybe some of my fellow Americans could shed some light on the reason they don't attend. I guess considering the sheer size of the show in Shizuoka I am somewhat bewildered that more of them don't make the journey. Maybe it has more to do with the cost & distance - who really knows?? Anyway I was just taking a guess based on my own unique personal experiences. While over the past 25+ years I have attended countless number of modeling shows throughout the U.S. (including 7 or 8 trips to the IPMS National Conventions) Having said that, I have yet to attend a single model show in America where there is not some sort of "competitive element" included in the show. I personally don't care to participate in model competitions but I really enjoying going to them because I get to see so much "kool stuff" which other bulders have built & created. From my perspective though I've always thought of modeling as a form of "art" and therefore enjoy the idea of having a "model exhibition" versus a "model competition." Does that make sense? On the other hand I'm guessing that the thrill/challenge of competing in a model competition might be a great source of motivation to some model builders☺ I have never been to any modeling shows in Europe so I cannot comment on these. Albeit I have heard that there are quite a few club tables at the show in Telford, England show. Anyway I'm just glad to be able to be a part of this great event
  6. Hi Brian, I've attended the 2016 & 2017 Shizuoka Hobby Shows and I've seen several visitors from different European and other Asian countries but not really whole lot of Americans. I know the distance and cost is probably a huge factor in keeping most Americans from attending but from my own personal perspective the Shizuoka Hobby Show is totally worth the money & time. I can't speak for certain but I sometimes get the sense that a lot of Americans tend to prefer participating in "competitive" events whereas culturally the same is not as true with the Japanese. Cheers, Tim
  7. I have put together a team of American model builders who are going to be attending this year's Shizuoka Hobby Show in Shizuoka, Japan. For those of you who might not be familiar with the Shizuoka Hobby Show it is arguable the largest plastic model exhibition in the world. The show itself is housed in two very large exhibition halls. One of the halls is filled with professional trade displays from the various major Japanese model companies such as Tamiya, Hasegawa, Bandai, Aoshima,, and a few of the lesser companies as well. The 2nd exhibition hall is where over 130 model clubs from all over Japan (along with a group of international modelers from Europe, ASEAN countries, and for the first time.....America) are set up to display their models. Apart from the sheer size of this event the other thing which I think makes this show rather unique is the fact that there is no actual model "competition." This show is really all about people of all ages getting together with like minded individuals to share in the passion of plastic model building. Another thing which I think sets this show apart from other shows is the fact that there are hundreds of "non-model builders" to attend as spectators. Anyway due to some unforeseeable circumstances several of our team members are not going to be able to attend and therefore I am looking for 1 or 2 builders from the U.S. to help fill in the gap. If you are interested in learning more about this unique opportunity please email me directly at: GNomad781(at) gmail.com Best regards, Tim Lingle
