We kindly invite all fans of modeling to a new event, prepared in cooperation with the MK Čaňa 55 modeling club and the Košice Aviation Museum (part of Slovak Technical Museum Košice). The exhibniton will taje place in a aviation museum, with the contest tables placed directly in the museum premisies  together with the xposed exihibits (real scale airplanes and their parts).

During the show,  You can meet with different types of modeling - from plastic and paper models to functional RC models.

The event takes place under the auspices of the former slovak President Rudolf Schuster (who was also the driving force behind the creation of the museum and also donated a large part of its exhibits.)

Patronage of the event was also taken over by the members of the former aerobatic group Biele Albatrosy. The title of the event is a tribute to one of the members of this group - mjr.Ing. Ľuboš Nováček, who tragically died in an accident on June 3, 2000 during a flight on the air show in Sliac.
