Euro Scale Modelling 2020 cancelled

Dear modeling friends, participants of our ESM,

With pain in our hearts we have to let you know that we have decided to cancel Euro Scale Modeling 2020.

Despite all the measures we have taken, it is almost impossible to organize a safe, pleasant and profitable fair for the participants, visitors, employees and volunteers.

The large number of registrations indicates that you all have confidence in our approach, we would like to thank you very much for that. We look forward to seeing each other again at Euro Scale Modeling on November 27, 2021.

Refunding of already purchased tickets will be done within 3 weeks

The online competition will continue as usual, you can register up to and including 11 November

All stay well and goodbye,


Best Regards

Plastic Modelling is the nicest, most creative and finest hobby for young and old that you can imagine. At the ESM you will find just about everything: kits, paints, glue, tools and everything further that you may need to enjoy Plastic Modelling. Furthermore, there will be a traditional model competition in a number of categories.

There will not only be traders present, but also individual members who offer kits and books from their own collection for sale. And there will be model builders who will demonstrate their techniques and show their finest models. There is ample opportunity for inspiration and for buying new (or old!) kits.



Wonderful prizes can be won at the Tombola at the ESM. Tickets are only 50 Eurocents, available at the IPMS Netherlands promotional booth.


IPMS Netherlands

Euro Scale Modelling is being organized by IPMS (International Plastic Modellers Society) Netherlands. The event is hosted in the large halls of the Expo Houten. The ESM extends to an area of more than 9000 sq.m. That is 2.2 acres! There is ample catering available so you may sit and chat with other visitors and make new acquaintances while enjoying a nice snack.


All information about the IPMS Netherlands and the ESM is available at the IPMS information booth. The review models featured in the 2019 issues of our magazine Modelbouw In Plastic, MIP for short, will be displayed at the IPMS information booth.
