About the Event...

The 2024 Heartland Model Car Nationals will be the 32nd show put on by the KC Slammers Model Car Club based in Kansas City, KS. Ours is a model car show that averages between 450 and 500 models entered each year. We have 29 separate classes and 16 Master Awards, including the Heartland Champion award. In 2023 our Heartland show had some 85 vendor tables sold with tons of model car kits, aftermarket parts, etc. The Overland Park Convention Center, Overland Park, KS is a great venue with plenty of parking, nearby restaurants and lodging. We create a PowerPoint-based awards show with photos of the Class winners and Master Awards along with the entrant's name and class sponsor. It is simply a great show put on by fellow car modelers and we even have a class called "Military (automotive related)…any non-track, automotive-style vehicle used by any military force from any nation." for our fellow military modelers. You need to join us and, hey, we're almost dead center in the middle of our country. Our 2024 theme is "What the…?" We’re talking GOOFY ideas here…like a Ferrari with a Pinto engine or a Pinto with a Ferrari engine, a camper/pickup bed on a ’57 Deville or a Gremlin as a Police Car…well, you know but we don’t and we want you to show us! Build that odd job, that model that makes people go Whaaaat? and bring it to the BEST Model Car Show in the Midwest. If you haven’t been to a Heartland Model Car Nationals you just haven’t been to the best model car show in the whole of the US! We’re bein’ modest here.

The show format is:

Day 1 (8 June) is for model registration only. The registration time is from 2:00pm until 7:00pm. Outside of those times only club members are permitted to stay as we judge the models from 7:00pm until judging is complete.
