Europe's largest model show is being presented in Dortmund. It comprises over 20.000 individual models and covers a gross area of 52.000 square metres in eight halls. Aeroplanes, helicopters, railways and trams, minicars, motorbikes, minitrucks, steam engines, hot air balloons, zeppelins, ships, boats, police cars, fire engines and ambulances, excavators and carousels – there is scarcely any original object that cannot be seen as a model at INTERMODELLBAU. The largest draws will be the aeroplane demonstrations, a 400 m² pond for demonstrating model boats, the attractive demonstration areas for minitrucks and work vehicles like excavators and cranes, and a minicar race track. Around 450 exhibiting companies and four nationwide-active modelmaking clubs will be participating at INTERMODELLBAU at stands and special shows. The number of prospective visitors is estimated at round about 87.000.
