Pictures of the 50th Shizuoka Hobby Show

Pictures of 50th Shizuoka Hobby Show

Had fun looking at pictures from the 50th Shizuoka Hobby Show which was held of course at the mecca of Japanese model kit manufacturers, Shizuoka Japan. That's because most of the major manufacturers are located there (Tamiya, Hasegawa, Bandai, Aoshima etc) and through their innovation, built up the model kit industry in Japan.

This event is a chance for manufacturers to showcase to their customers their latest products. The 2011 Shizuoka Hobby Show will last from May 12 to May 15. Will update this post if I see newer pictures as the days progress.

Listing below the sites with the best pictures of the event.
