A Hot Aftermath!
A Hot Aftermath
The last week of passing 2011 march was a very hot week for Norwegian scale modelers. Temperatures indeed were high in the relatively cold country, thanks to the excitement caused by Skala - the national Norwegian scale modelers contests.
Modelers from nation wide arrived to Dal, a small place about 50 kilometers from the capital city Oslo. The contest, organized by the Norwegian chapter of IPMS, gathered modelers from all over Norway, along with some international guests.
78 participants arrived with no less then 270 models, to compete in categories that varied from cars, airplanes and ships, to dioramas, AFV, soft-skins and so on.
Skala also had Spencer Pollard from the United Kingdom and Juha Airio from Finland hosting master classes for the modelers participating in the show. Those classes are reported to have been a great success, and I am glad that we had the opportunity to see how the world class masters work.
I'll just let the pictures, taken by Tor Henning Engen, to tell the rest of the story. I hope you'd enjoy them, and hope to see you too in next year's Skala
