Manta Model Expo 2023

On 23 and 24 September in Veliko Tarnovo, an exhibition of models – Manta Model Expo 2023, is going to be held, jointly organized by the Manta Model Club and Club of developers in Veliko Tarnovo

  • An unlimited number of modelers are free to participate.
  • Every participant can enter with an unlimited number of models.
  • There is no entry fee for the exhibition.
  • Modeler not present physically for the exposition can also participate, if they have arranged a registration and transportation of their models.
  • The organizers of the exposition have the right to deny entry to models, which are in clash with ethical, moral, religious, esthetical or lawful norms.
Electronic registration form:
  • The electronic registration form for registration will become available on 1st of September, both for participants and models.
  • Modelers, who have been unable to do the registration in advance, will have the opportunity to do so on the event itself after 09:30 on 23 September. We implore you to take into consideration that registration on the event can take more time due to queues, so registration in advanced is recommended.
  • For models, participating in the Expo, the registration is recommended – a sign with information will be printed. Only registered models will be judged for rewards.
  The fact that the models will be judged only on general vision gives us the opportunity for the categories to be untraditionally organized in reference to classical expositions.
  Models will be divided according to the epoch and the political and military block from that epoch, with no distinction between aviation, figures, dioramas, navy or land machinery. Size grouping will also be non-official, only in relation to positioning the models.
