As tradition calls for, the last weekend in October of every year is C4 time. This is held in Malmö in southern Sweden, easily accessible from Denmark and Germany in addition to Sweden of course!
The only disadvantage is the difficult photo conditions (and that is certainly not unique among modelling shows!) but I have as usual tried to do my best and here is a broad selection of the different aircraft classes.
Check out http://www.c4-open.nu/ and book next year's date already now!

About the Author

About Magnus Fridsell (magnusf)
FROM: STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

It all started with a Biggles book, one of those where he is a flying policeman... He flew an Auster of some kind. Later that year, this was in 1982 when I was 10, I got the Airfix Series 1 Auster for Christmas. Since then modelling has been my interest. It has survived RC flying, flying full sca...

Thanks for these photos Magnus, some really nice models there, especially the Lanc Dio. Andy

Glad you like the photos! There were several 1/72 dioramas by the same builder (I don't know who, even if I have been to C4 every year since 1994!). The models themselves weren't traditional "winner models" but that was more than compensated for by the action and the multitude of figures in the scenes. I would be nice to see more aircraft dioramas, in armour modelling it has almost become the norm to at least have a base plate for the model and one or a few figures included. Magnus

Thanks for sharing your pictures of the expo with us, Magus. There are some really nice and unusual models between them. Especially I like the swedish A6M2-N "Rufe" in trainer colour. Is it a "What If" or is it based on a real plane? Happy modelling! Torsten

Hi Torsten! That Rufe is a what-if, we never had it in Sweden (and I don't think there were any plans to buy it either). It is painted as a rescue plane, the same scheme that we had on the Goose and the Norseman. Magnus

Hi. I built the Rufe. No we didn't use it but yes we could have bought it. In 1940 while "shopping" for aircrafts, mainly in the US, the swedish ambassador who had very good conections asked, on a private initiative, if it was possible to buy the new japanese fighter, the answer was yes and the japanese made an offer to sell the plane. The swedish airforce wasn't interested so nothing came out of it. In the end we only got 60 Seversky EP-1 of all the aircraft purchased from the US, so an emergency purchase of italian R2000Falco, Fiat CR42 and Caproni CA313 was made.
