Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame!
By Mark S. Gustavson

    Starting in 1992, The International Model Car Builders' Museum joined up with Scale Auto Enthusiast to create the Hall of Fame to honor those who have made the most significant contributions to the history, growth and development of the model car hobby.

    In the early years, we only honored one person each year. In 2000, we decided that two people should be inducted each year because there were so many people, roughly divided into two categories ("Writer/Builder" and "Industry Insider"), that should be inducted. A special Museum committee nominates all persons considered for induction into the Hall of Fame by that Committee (no potential inductee has served on the Committee for that year). 

    Here is the full list of all Hall of Fame Members:
