MAMA's Annual Model Car Show and Swap Meet

Our 2024 Mid-Atlantic NNL was a huge success!

Our 2024 Mid-Atlantic NNL Show:
The Maryland Automotive Modelers Association annual Mid-Atlantic NNL was held 11 May 2024. It was a huge success with 163 builders entering 307 of the best built model cars, trucks, and motorcycles on earth!

MAMA thanks our most generous sponsors for their support of our 2024 show!

MAMA also expresses gratitude for all those who supported our show!

A great big thank you to all our trophy sponsors! They made it possible for us to bestow upon our class winners what we happen to think are among the nicest-looking trophies in the hobby.

Another great big thank you to all of the vendors who came out to the show and provided participants with plenty of items with which to grow their collections.

We also want to acknowlege the terrific support of the Level Volunteer Fire Hall in providing us an affordable venue and accomodating our schedule. We are particularly thankful for Ms. Karen Lopes and the Ladie's Auxilliary who were key to making the show arrangements by interacting with the hall's Operational and Administrative officers on our behalf, helped set up the tables, and staffed the kitchen to make sure there was a good selection of tasty menu items available for us and our show participants to nosh on for breakfast and lunch!

Last, but not least, we want to thank all those club members who worked so hard setting up, tearing down, and operating the show as well as those who did plenty of work behind the scenes to make the show happen.

MAMA especially thanks each and every particiant and visitor who attended our show. You made the show the success that it was.


This year, just before announcing the award winners, we held a very special raffle for a 1/24 scale 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT Resin Model in Bright Silver Metallic from Automodello and the lucky winner was Lewis Hicks.

Congratulations to all of our 2024 winners!
