KITMEET, A NEW CONCEPT OF MEETING FOR MODELLERS

The KitMeet experience started in 2010.
A three-day long workshop to really enjoy our hobby: working, talking, sharing knowledge, making friends.
A common place for meeting and lots of hours to enjoy. With no competition, no stress and no worries.
"Slow Modelling". Pure modelling essence.

 

THE PREMISES

KitMeet will be held at the Nau Bòbila Vella, the multipurpose building of the Palafrugell City Council, at 28th La Garriga Street, Palafrugell (Girona - Spain).
That was the warehouse of the old "Miquel Vincke i Meyer" cork factory, now restored and reconverted into a magnificent cultural space.
You can locate it in GOOGLE MAPS HERE.
And photos of the premises HERE.
 
 
THE DATES FOR KITMEET 1.7
 
This next edition, KitMeet 1.7, will run from 13th to 15th october 2017.
 
 
OPENING HOURS
 
It will begin at 9:00 on friday and close at 14:00 on sunday. A long and intense weekend!
The premises are open daily from 9:00 AM till quite late at night, non-stop.
This way you can arrange your time as you prefer: making models, enjoying the meals, chatting with some beers around, having a walk beside the sea (or even a bath).


 

WHAT WE'LL DO

At KitMeet we are going to work, and you can bring models to build or to paint, started or not. As you like.
 
You can also join one of the Boxes: workshops where modellers with similar tasks or interests will work together along with a well-known advisor.
This way it will be easier to share techniques, tips and ideas around common themes, so to enjoy and learn between all of us.
As the different Boxes are confirmed, we'll inform on these here and at the News section.
Is not necessary to join now a Box in your Preinscription, but you will have when making your definitive Inscription.

• Terrains, by Rubén González.
     • Preparation of a base for vignette or diorama.
