NSRA Model Build Off 2011
2011 Brought some new challenges for the Nsra Scale Car Model Build Off, instead of the normal way it was run over winter and purely on the Nsra forum this one wasn't. The hole format of the comp changed, more time was given and it run until July in fact it was being hosted at the Nsra UK Hot Rod Supernationals where on the Sunday, the open public day the Scale Model Builders placed their entries onto the Nsra Model Stand by 12noon ready to be judged by a Special Guest Judge! The Nsra pulled out all the stops for this one and what a huge success it was too, with over 20 Scale Model builds being placed on the table and a few last minute cars being placed just before Judging. Every single scale model that were placed on the table were of excellence and even the few that were just placed on just to show off were amazing to look at!
Now you will be wondering who the special guest is that took the time to judge these fantastic models, well It was none other than the Iconic British Hot Rod Builder Nick Butler.
And here he is sat in front of one of his Iconic builds Nykilodean, Nick also built Sonic & Revenge
So the Models were on the stand, Mr Butler was ready and Judging began, here are a few pictures of the Nsra UK Model Stand to show you how full it was.
I was amazed to see how full the Nsra Model Stand became and how busy it was with the pubic taking such an interest coming to have a look & rekindle the Model builder in most people that looked on at the full tables.
People having a look at the stand, if you could get in for a look that was!
