Makettfesztivál Miskolc 2018 - The Győzelem Pajzsa (Shield of Victory) exhibition
Article updated: 2020.02.19
The Makettfesztivál Miskolc 2018 (Model Festival 2018) miniatures convention was held on 2018.02.03-04, in Miskolc. The Makettfesztivál Miskolc, built around the Győzelem Pajzsa (Shield of Victory) modeling competition, is an annual modeling hobby event, organised by the Miskolci Makettezők Egyesülete (Modelers Association of Miskolc). An event coverage was written by Kadmon.
On this Makettfesztivál the Nexus Club also participated on both days, working closely with The Forge wargaming club. The Győzelem Pajzsa (Shield of Victory) modeling competition was also held here, the programs of the Makettfesztivál are basically built around this. For this occasion Kelemen Gábor made a wargaming board for Games Workshop's Lord of the Rings.
There were many sights to see even beyond the Győzelem Pajzsa (Shield of Victory) competition. All around the venue there were modelers showing their trade - how to build and paint models. Many model hobby stores were present to provide the possibility of shopping with a discount.

The Győzelem Pajzsa (Shield of Victory) competition attracted numerous nominees, and it gathered many interested people to the Makettfesztivál this year as well.

Miskolci Vasútmodellezők Egyesülete (Railway Model Association of Miskolc) displayed several electric model railway boards in one of the rooms of the Makettfesztivál.
My favorite was the track section showing the work modelling process - this way you can see how it came to be created, from pieces of foam to the painted model.

The organisers of the event provided a model helicopter for the club from the legacy of the late Ulrich József, for which I would like to thank them!
