Major 1/43 Model Car Event the “Countryside Collectors Classic Toy Show” this Weekend in Chicago

This show has been running for thirty years and for about half of that period it combined the 1/43 Scale Show with the Countryside Collectors Classic.  If you have not been yet…go!  The combined show is a huge display of collectibles with an emphasis on scale models and automobilia.  Here some photos from last year (and this year is going to be bigger and even better)  –


The North American Brooklin Collector Club (NABCC) will show and sell the newest Brooklin Models.  Jim from Automodello and Sergio Goldvarg of The Goldvarg Collection will be there as well.  And many other vendors – so lots of opportunities to add to your hobbyDB Showcase!

You can check in with the swell NABCC officers John, Karl or Tom, or read more about it on the NABCC website here (this is also where you find addresses, info on tickets etc).
