Olsztyn 2015 Show in Poland

The article and pictures were composed and taken by Darek Sommerfeld.

“During April 11/12 of 2015 I took part in a sixth modeling contest in Olsztyn. The contest was organized in the Youth Palace of Olsztyn. During the modeling contest there were many different categories of models ranging from over 400 cardboard to plastic creations. Thanks to my friend Robert, I was able to familiarize myself with the work of cardboard modelers and meet a few of them during the competition. Many of the models appeared very realistic and it was hard to believe that they were made from cardboard. In terms of plastic models, the majority of the models was composed of armored vehicles but there was a likewise large selection of planes, ships, civillian vehicles and standalone figures.
