On March 2, 2019, the “Auto Modeler’s Gathering in Yokohama 2019” was held at the Yokohama Plant Guest Hall in Nissan Motor in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture. This event began in 2012 with the aim of deepening interaction between model car enthusiasts, “Nissan Automotive Technology Modeler’s Club (NATMC)”, an in-house club of Nissan Group’s vehicle development company Nissan Automotive Technology . If it is a model of peaceful use car (regardless of the number of wheels), it is OK for participation regardless of scale or material, no participation reservation or cost is required. We brought the work of the day and exhibited it, and modelers talked to each other for a model consultation. It is a unique event where the low level of threshold that anyone can easily participate and the height of the level where the participants also have a promeller are living together. Let’s introduce about the model of the road car in the first part, among about 1000 works exhibited by participants who counted about 300 people.
