It is a very special model contest dedicated to modellers and their families infact this is also know as "no stress Model Contest".

"No stress" means that the modellers and their families could book the hotel very close to the exhibition hall, book some extras activities, book a special dinner,have an all-together buffet during the last day, relaxing at the beach or decide to spend a day by some Theme, Fun and Water Parks in the area.

This year almost 700 model kits were exhibited with top quality models. 9 model shops where also present with thousand of boxes, conversions, figures, tools and books.

A very nice display of 23rd Squadron stuffs was also showed to the public. It has been a very nice occasion for modellers to meet each other by person not only by email or by forums.

Pelikanguys had also the good idea to play a picture of ARC members present on Sunday May 27th ... so you can see our lovely faces....

The next edition will took place on May 2014 with dated TBA as well as a new and bigger location BUT conserving the pure spirit of pure and friendly model makers. See you on 2014!
