American Cars at Jabbeke 2014 model car show [1]

March 17, 2014

by Seb Perez

Last weekend I went to Jabbeke’s model car show. The show takes place every year in Jabbeke (near Brugge) in Belgium. The show is getting bigger each year and the location is just great, a very modern sports centre, big enough to house this great event.

The organizers are really friendly people, it’s always a pleasure to meet them. I also had the opportunity to meet some friends from last year, and make some new friends.

Due to personal reasons, I was not able to assist with my models this time. Maybe next year. We’ll see.

My goal was to make pictures of every single model present at the show to share with all of you guys, specially those not in Europe…  BUT my battery went dead 2 times. I had time to recharge the batteries once. I finally took pictures of ALMOST ALL THE MODELS (approximately 1300 pictures). I think only 100 were left. Not so bad after all. I want to give special thanks to Abraham, my friend, who was so patient while I was taking all this pictures. I think he enjoyed the show more than I did.

I decided to organize the pictures by the following categories:

  • American Cars (this post)
  • European and Asian Cars
  • Rally and Racing Cars
  • Trucks and Machines
  • Pickups
  • Bikes
  • Dioramas
  • Vintage kits

During this week I’ll be posting a short selection of pictures and a all-pictures-video for each category. Stay tuned… 1300 pictures coming!

If you want see ‘em all, just check the 400 pictures in this video:

Posting 400 pictures is just insane. I made a short selection of my favorite models:

The pictures are great, especially the one on the paint job. Lot of work went into that.

Hi Paul, thanks for the feedback! That’s right, some of the paint jobs are stunning.

Hi Don, that’s right, there is still a lot to be learned! I realize that every time I visit model cars shows and meet guys with 40 years of experience!!
