Catania Show 2007
award ceremony - by EnginAward ceremony was held in a congress hall near the show hall. The hall was crammed full and many were standing on both sides. Organization, once again, proved perfect, as everything was nicely planned and performed. The whole staff of the club (that is important as they all worked for the Show), were on the podium, sharing the delivery of the medals and special prizes to the modelers.
After an inauguration speech of the CSMS President, a high rank officer of the Carabinieri, dressed in official uniform, made a short speech and that was important to show the support of local authorities. Then the judges are introduced to the audience one by one and awarded by the special prize of CSMS Show.
As the show was judged in Open System which is always the best in my opinion, many painters were awarded in gold, silver and bronze. Diego Ruina's Chinese General Guang-Yu won the Best of Show in Master Category as Fausto Marletta won Best of Show in Standard Category with his Russian Ballistic Missile Transporter SS 1C SCUD B. 25 gold, 26 silver and 21 bronze awards are given in total. In addition ; sponsor companies presented special awards. A full list of winners can be seen at CSMS Show Awards.
