Many automobile enthusiasts are also active modelers with a passion for things automotive in a smaller scale. The annual Hawaii NNL Model Car Show provides these enthusiasts an outlet for their hobby.

This year’s show returns to the Ala Moana Hotel, Garden Lanai. It will be held on Sunday, March 26, 2017; open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The theme of this year’s show is 1/24-25 scale four-wheel drive pickups, SUVs, Jeeps and other vehicles meant to be driven off road—lifted, raised, the higher the better!

The show will include a 1/24 scale slot car drag strip, sponsored by Mad Myron’s Raceway. The strip will be in 1/8 scale with a staging area, timing lights, and a run off area.

The show’s swap meet would be a great place to find older model car kits, such as Hot Wheels and collectible diecast models. Vendor tables are available at $20 each (after March 1, 2017, $25 per table).

Hawaii NNL is a non-judged model car show and contest, where visitors vote on their favorite models. It is patterned after the NNL shows from Toledo, Ohio. NNL is an acronym for National Nameless Luminaries, which originated in 1980

The Hawaii NNL is a project of the Hawaiian Islands Model Car Club.

Entry fee for model exhibitors is $10 per person and allows for any number of models. General admission for visitors is $2.

For more information about the slot car race, contact Myron at madmyron.rh@gmail.com.

    Hi Gregg. My name is Randall Park (Randy) and I would like to get two tables at the March 26th model show. I was the person who sold you the ’69 El Camino/soap box derby model kit. I’ll be bringing a few more older kits to sell along with some dealer promotional models to exhibit. Thanks for the great shows you’ve been putting on. I’ve been enjoying them and the people I’ve met. Randy
