What is NNL East?
An NNL event is a non-competitive gathering of model car builders
and enthusiasts. The day's goals are to display our work, share tips and
information, meet other car modelers, and most importantly making new friends
and having a good time! NNL East is not a contest as there is no formal
Instead, People's Choice Awards are presented, lending to the casual atmosphere
of an NNL event. This year's special theme is "Hot Rods From Hell",
those post apocalyptic vehicles everyone seems to be building. Build a movie
replica or anything from your imagination! . Our subtheme is
"In God We Rust", rusty vehicles of any type! And of course,
built only to the limits of your imagination!
