On May 21th manufacturers, dealers and a crowd of collectors were meeting in Kassel.
A good opportunity to see the latest new models, hunt for some old ones and meet fellow collectors.
here are a few pictures to give an expression for those who could not be there. This is no complete coverage - just a few tables that catched my interest when I had my camera at hand.
The main room with the manufacturers and dealers was quite crowded - at least during the first hours.
A View into one of the second hand rooms. This year two rooms were dedicated for sellers of second hand models - a chance to close some gaps in the collections.
But the dealers in the main room had a good selection of sometimes hard to find models too - here for example at the table of E.Breustedt (operated by the Müllers in Ütze-Hänigsen near Hanover).
