Six of my clubmates are there right now, three in figurines and three in AFV's. SMC has become the annual "place to be" for European scale modeling. Many modelers are now choosing Eindhoven NL instead of Folkstone UK as one could witness in this year's poorly attended Euromilitaire.

Thanks Peter for the info.
Though born in Eindhoven myself I never heared of this event.
Looking at their pictures: :eh: too many tanks, panzers and modern warfare stuff to my taste. There is enough real wars going on at the moment, why not have a look in Syria, Iraq and Ukraine first?

But the location Eindhoven makes sense because with the technical university and Philips&DAF factories all together the city became a technical centre of The Netherlands and abroad.

Been there twice, a great show. Lots of kits and the painting competition is in my opinion to big, so much great work to see there, stupid but realy to much.
This year I didn't go cause I was to busy at work. Maybee next year.
But a great show Peter!
