And the Winners are! WRAM Show 2013

Feb 26, 2013 2 Comments by

Though many manufacturers and distributors of RC equipment and products come each year to the WRAM Show,  for many, the heart of the show is the large collection of beautiful scale, sport and vintage models that show up to compete in the scale competition. Compared to last year, which was the first time the WRAM Show was held at the Meadowlands Expo Center in NJ, this year’s competition was back with a vengance! There were many new never before seem models and all were of the highest quality and finish! If you like RC planes, this is the place to be. And the winners are… See below!

    Nice pictures Gerry. I miss the WRAMS. The only downside of life in Florida is we don’t have any big gatherings of the manufacturers. Of course we do get Florida Jets, Top Gun, and others. There needs to be a big trade show in Tampa. What better place in the dead of winter…
