Truck modeling night drive: lights off – show on!

After a successful premiere last year, this year’s Faszination Modellbau Friedrichshafen in Hall A4 will again turn “Day into Night”!

A night drive is often quite annoying in reality. The pure opposite creates the twilight in the miniature vehicles. This is where the extensive lighting systems really come into their own and amazement is pre-programmed for the spectators.

On Friday and Saturday from 4:30 p.m. onwards, the hall lighting in Hall A4 will be largely reduced and it will be “night” on the various courses in the truck hall. Road trucks show their light functions, construction machines warn with flashing beacons, the fire department races to action with blue lights, snow groomers illuminate the slopes for work and show trucks thrill with their light effects. Commercial vehicle modelling shows here what is possible. Together with the loving design of the truck courses, one can experience the whole fascination of this model building branch.
