Tamiya/Con 05 was held on Apr 16-17, 2005 at Tamiya America headquarter at Aliso Viejo, CA. It is 10th annual event (I thought it was 11th as it's started since 1995.) In any case, it is a great event... They even put a real working M1 tank on the show... This is also my 10th attendance to this show.. This year I took my 1/20 F2001B to compete in 1/20 Formula Cars Category.. The best Formula car in the show has to go to A.J. Palomina's F1-2000 and garage that he took to Tamiya/Con for exhibition. You will see more pic in this report. We drove to Southern California from San Jose, CA on Sat morning and arrived at around 2pm. We went to Long Beach for some sight-seeing.
We attended on Sunday and here are the best pic I took on different categories.
Automotive (my favorite)
There are about 20 entries in 1/12 category.. and 4-5 in 1/6 category. My good friend, Leo, won 1/20 category with his Yamaha YZR Marlboro. Here are some highlights.
There are only 5 entries there.. I hope interest in F1 modeling will not die away.
Military and Diorama category
As usual, these categories are the most competitive and spectacular categories, I spent a lot more time in this room too
