The annual model car and die cast exhibition is Sunday, March 18th starting at 9am.
This year’s show is being hosted at the Holiday Inn on Standish Blvd in in Taunton, Mass.
Expect to see 50+ Vendor Tables of model car kits, promos, accessories, resin-cast, parts, die-cast & more.
You can display your built models and projects at the non-competitive gathering of model car builders and enthusiasts if you don’t want to be bothered with all the attention, trophies, accolades and admiration of your fellow model car builders.
If you are the kind of model builder who wants the trophy so you can rub it in your friends’ faces for the next year, then register your model and win awards in the following categories: Peoples Choice Voting Award, Best Rat Rod, Best Motorcycle, Best First Responder Vehicle, Best Junior Build Ages 18 and under, Best Factory Stock, Best Automotive, Best Scratch-Built, John Reid award for Best Custom, Tex Ouderkirk award for Best Diorama and many more.
There is no model registration fee, so feel free to bring and display as many of your model cars, trucks and dioramas as you can carry.

Founded in 1901, Chicago’s auto show is North America’s largest show and this year marks the 110th edition.
The L.A. show has all the glitz and glamour, Detroit’s show always focuses on the auto industry as a whole, the Chicago show is all about the consumer though and that’s what makes this show so special. There are dozens of great exhibits, world premiers, future technology displays, concept cars, exotics, etc.
As always, this year’s show is hosted at McCormick Place on Lake Shore Drive. This venue features about 2.7 million square feet of exhibit space, so bring your sneakers!
Friday Feb 9th is the first day open to the public and it’s their “First Look for Charity” Event, so there’s not a huge crowd and no waiting in lines to see the stuff that you want to. The charity tickets are $275 a piece, but worth every penny. I grew up in Chicago and went to this show many times. I was fortunate enough to go on press night most years and I can tell you that you’ll appreciate the smaller crowds.
The general public show runs Feb 10th to the 18th and an adult ticket is $13.
