A BIT OF MAiNE Weekend Postponed

A BIT OF MAiNE Model Horse Weekend I'm also sad to announce that we will be postponing our BIT OF MAiNE Model Horse Weekend. A new date will be set after the threat has passed.  We intended to wait to make a decision until April, but it's certain at this point that this virus won't be finished in our region by May.  Both of my parents are high risk, and I am moderate risk, so we will be practicing social distancing as much as possible until a vaccine becomes available. We have already ordered supplies and awards for the event,...

Collectability Classes - Where Collectors Go To Be Jealous

Collectability Classes - Where Collectors Go To Be Jealous

  Collectability Classes are my favorites in the show!  This is a great opportunity to show off our treasures, see models we've never seen before, and even learn a little Breyer history!  Collectability classes are where you show off your rarest or most valuable models, like Eleda's cherished Copenhagen Running Mare, shown here.  Collectability is judged on: Scarcity - How many were made?  It may be a limited edition or perhaps a one-of-a-kind factory oddity.  Or, it could be a model so old that few exist in good condition these days. Desirability - Models on more sought-after molds usually place...

Collector's Class - A Class Like No Other!

 Let's talk about Collector's Class!  I'm excited about this because Collector's Class is often one of the most fun classes in a show!  It's definitely the most fun for other exhibitors to look at.  It's your way of showing everyone, "Here's what I collect!" and getting to see what they collect. Collector's Class is technically part of the Collectability Division, but is a very special class, different from all others.  While the rest of the show focuses on a single model for each entry, Collector's Class is a display of 12 models shown together!   Rules vary between shows, so...
