Model Convention - São Paulo - Brazil

Postby glehn » Sun Dec 03, 2017 22:20

This weekend we had our anual plastic model convention in São Paulo, my home city. As usual there are only a few 1/144 models. As I was not sure if I would be able to attend or not, I have not enrolled any model this year.

Airliners do appear in larger numbers than military in 1/144

787. I don´t know why, but it really bothers me that most airliner modelers use decals for the windshield.

There were a few U-boats in 1/144 also

I believe the Kilo class is 1/144. You can see the huge 1/72 Skipjack from Moebius. And I really enjoyed the scratchbuilt sail of the Brazilian submarine Tikuna in 1/35

I also enjoy Sci-Fi but usually there are very few models in this category at our conventions around here. This year was an exception with several cool models

One of the cool things about this convention is that it happens inside an Air Force base with some cool planes around

On the one hand I agree, however isn't airliner modeling 70% about the liveries, 20% about the type and 10% about the detail (well most are long round cigar tubes) !? : :twisted: :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Thanks. That's actually a Buffalo - notice the T-tail. :)
I don't care much for the competition aspect of these conventions, but I enjoy the inspiration they bring along. I came home full of ideas for my next projects. :)

In the good ol' days when Airfix's airliners were "it" in 1/144, several of the earlier kits relied on decals for all of the transparencies. Then someone thought, hey, maybe we can mould appropriate clear bits and away we went. After reading your comments here and looking at the 787, the first thing I did was find a photo of the Revell kit parts. As expected, clear parts abound so no excuses. I suspect the modeller probably has a raft of diecast airliners in his/her collection and transparencies are few and far between.

Some really nice stuff at the Convention, Luis. As Angus said, it's less the competition, more the inspiration and ideas. Not to say I don't sometimes get a tad envious of the skills of others. OK, insanely jealous ... :twisted:

The funny thing is that there was a guy taking pictures of the aircraft and he wouldn't move, so I hid him behind my head in the selfies. :D :D

Here are some pictures of them without me:
