I thought I would share a few candid shots taken at Kassel for those who could not make it there this time. I have always thought seeing the faces of some of the master modellers and sellers helps a collector feel a little closer to the hobby. I am also including a couple of pictures taken in the "second hand sellers" rooms. Aside from Navis/Neptun, most of the master modellers do not keep every model they have cast in stock. As a result, the second hand sales at Kassel are a great opportunity to fill in your collection without having to win on Ebay. Also many are in great condition and often very well painted.
A case in point would be the family of Wolfgang Beckmann who having been selling off his collection for the last three Kassel gatherings. these models are beautifully painted and reasonably priced like a lot of the second hand merchandise. Sort of makes you wonder what happens to the collections of US collectors that we almost never hear about.
The show opens at 10:00 am with the anxious buyers lined up outside.
