The Citrus Nationals Story…

Living in Southern California has been a hot bed of many inventive and creative events. KitBashers of So. California, a model car club, has been around since 2006. As a model car club we ventured to many local and state events in attempt to support this dying breed of plastic styrene or resin in an art form. We hold monthly meetings in Riverside California. Our club meeting is a place to talk and meet with other model car builders in a refreshing environment conducive to learning and sharing information and ideas. We exist to have fun, share knowledge, promote the hobby and become better all around builders.

By December 2007, KitBashers of So. California was tired of hearing about another model car event falling by the way side. In an effort to stop this from happening again, The Citrus Nationals was born. This book is recognize's the hobby and competition of built scale model cars. A main purpose as a model car builder is to achieve some form of recognition from peers and learn to build a better model for next year’s event.
