Dear modelling friends, participants of our ESM: the next event will take place November 23, 2024!

Update February 12, 2024

The dust of the ESM 2023 has settled, the holidays are over again and we are already in the second month of 2024. Time to give an update on the ESM 2024, but not before we issue a call for a new coordinator of volunteers, as a vacancy has arisen in this. If you feel called, do not hesitate, and contact the coordinator of the ESM (Contact – Euroscale Modelling).

The first emails within the team have already gone around to make it another great day.

In the evaluation of the ESM 2023, some outside recommendations were gone through to achieve a better structure. These are being processed, also some things need to be discussed with the Expo in Houten. We hope to announce more as soon as possible.

There is a nice initiative to form a special display to “remember” that January 20, 1974 , so fifty years ago, the General Dynamics F-16 first took to the airspace: 50 years F-16.

This will show the history of the aircraft. The first contacts are being made to make this a great success.

If you want to participate alone or with your club, mail to esm@ipms.nl or use the contact form on the site (Contact – Euroscale Modelling), you will get all the information.

Until the next update!

 

Plastic modeling is the most beautiful, creative and fun hobby for young and old alike. At the annual ESM (Euro Scale Modelling) you will find everything: not only kits, paint, glue, but also all the tools and materials you need for modeling. Moreover, there is the traditional modeling contest in various categories! The contest is open to all builders and subjects, as long as they are plastic models.

There are not only dealers with new stuff, there are also individuals offering books and/or kits for sale from their own collections. And there are many model builders giving demonstrations and showing their finest work.You can get endless inspiration for your own creations and buy new (or just old) kits.

Entrance is free for IPMS members on presentation of their valid ticket ordered through the ESM website. This is basically on the phone, but it might be useful to print it out as well. Also bring your IPMS membership card with you.
Admission for non-members is for a limited amount per person, these tickets are also available through the website. Children up to and including 12 years old have free admission if accompanied by an adult.
