Well it's official. Ferrari Expo 2013 will be held on March 23rd 2013, the same weekend as the 1/43rd model show(Strictly 43rd show people) wich is held on the 24th around a mile away. The Ferrari Expo model/art/literature show has been running every year since 1979. It started at the Como Inn and is now held at Continental Autosport Ferrari Maserati.

The model contest is on it's 8th year and will be as big as ever. We will have modelers from as far away as Mexico City and from all over the USA. We might even have one from Japan in 2013.


Hope you can make this very fun event. Come see some fine art and fine models along with a few real vintage Ferrari's and sportscars on display.

They are saying late March/early April 2013 for first deliveries in the US, so maybe. Also Ferrari Club of America are having their big yearly meeting at Road America a week before the ALMS race. It's the 50th anniversary for the club that was started in Chicago(Road America is pretty close to Chicago and the best track in the country!!)..

Ferrari Expo 2013 is only 1 month away. I will be posting pictures soon. I am working on 3 Pan Americana 1950-1954 cars. The handbuilt model contest will also have a historical Pan Am display. My main project this year is a full scratchbuilt 1953 Pan am Ferrari 250MM 123 Production.

For the show we have some very high end dealers bringing in model kits and high end hand builts from as far away as Russia and Japan. You can talk to the people involved in producing these amazing models. Also some east European model dealers will display super detailed hand builts.

Ferrari Expo was moved to this weekend so that it would run together with the new Route 66 1/43rd show and Unique Events toy show, all the same weekend in Chicago. This will be a very busy week for model cars in the Chicago area.

By the way, they already had a Ferrari F12 at the dealer. Not sure if they will have one in stock for the show yet.

I wont be able to make this one,

I haven't really focused on model building lately as I've been working on remodeling my home and been working. Also I'm racing at Chicago Indoor Raceway that day

Only 2 weeks to go. I was at the dealer yesterday and they had some nice Ferrari's that will be on display including a Ferrari 333SP, 225 Vignale, series 1 PF 250 cabriolet, ASA and several other old Ferrari's and Maserati's+ an Alfa 1900 Touring.

Steve..sorry to see you won't make it.

Here is a link to the 1/43rd and 1/24th scale models I am working on for the Pan Americana model display:
