Hobbyforum in Yokohama 2023-12-03

Post by Flemming »

Hi

Met up with fellow F1M contributor 'F1Xena' AKA Tania for going to the Hobbyforum show.

Hobbyforum show was the first post covid since 2019, so judging it alone would probably not be completely fair? Our assessment afterwards that it was smaller than before. Most sellers stuck to list pricing. MFH only had a couple of Hobbyshow only issued kits - probably to the frustration for those not present? It was the 499P in 1:24 and the current (red) F1 in 1:20. Due to licensing issues (none haven...) those kits were not MFH but DTM! There were a lot of stuff to buy - not least if you were into die cast. The previously very big display area of finished models were very much reduced... so... Worth the very long trip these days? Not really I am afraid.

There was a fine table dedicated to the memory of mr. Hiro-san who regrettably left us earlier this year.

If any interest I will post more pics.
