SHIZUOKA 2013 - pt. 2

This year a record 228 modelling clubs from all over Japan exhibited literally thousands of models. There was a VERY HIGH number of Japanese aircraft entries with a great variety in subjects that made us really happy. As you can see Zero-sens were the most popular but this year there were surprisingly quite a few pre-War aircraft entries. The level of Japanese aircraft modelling was satisfactory but there were fewer really spectacular entries than last year.

This time we will present the creations of the modellers not by subject but by club starting with Hasegawa's Joyful Modeller's Convention.
