Last June 9th and 10th of June, IPMS Esteban Echeverria & Ezeiza organized their annual Contest and Expo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As usual in these events a lot of very interesting models, modelers and some vendors were present.
As you can see in these images, there were not only a lot of models entered, but also most were extremely well done. Meetings other local modelers, most of which I met for the first time is usually a great time to share a hobby that usually can get pretty lonely. On these lines I also managed to meet some well known local modelers that I follow on social media sites or blogs. It was nice being able to shake hands with them!.
Some very interesting pieces like the “Missile tractor” (a Tractor/Pucara Rocket pod concoction actually used during the Malvinas/Falklands war in 82) probably leads the charts as far as creativity goes.
In 1/72 in particular there where a lot of very interesting models, from Robotech/Macross VF-1 of which a pair where presented, to awesome armor models and finally to Hughes H-1 racer in a pristine looking NMF finish.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed the event.
Congratulations to the IPMS EEE team for putting out a great event and hope to see you all next year!.
