If you're a die-hard model car builder, then the NNL West is one of those shows you look forward to every year. If you live here in the Bay Area, it's a big national event right here in your backyard. If you're coming from other parts of the country, it's a chance to get away from the bad winter weather and take in a great event at the same time.The NNL West is about a lot of things: it's about great looking model cars; it's about meeting old friends and new ones; it's about maybe getting your model photographed for a magazine; and most of all it's about having fun. During the day you can check out the door prize table and maybe win a prize. The kids can sign up for the "Make N' Take" program and have a chance to build a model right there, and then put it on the display tables. You can sit-in on a How-To seminar. You can also walk through the NNL West Model Expo held in the same huge hall as the NNL. Vendors come from all over the country bringing great deals on the latest aftermarket parts, new kits, or rare old kits. Modelers save-up all year for this great chance to stock up on modeling goods.The NNL West is a non-competitive event. The only two awards are the "Youth Modeler's Choice" award and the "Adult Modelers Choice" award. However, there will be some awards from other sources. The Silicon Valley Scale Vehicles will be continuing their tradition of presenting a "Club Pick" award, along with a couple of other clubs, for their favorite car at the show. There will also be the NNL West "Staff Picks" again this year.
