All About the Desert Scale Classic

Now in its seventeenth year, historically DESERT SCALE CLASSIC Model Car Championship is the premiere automotive miniature contest, show, and vendor expo in the Southwest!  Attracting the finest model car builders from throughout North America, DSC is an acclaimed critically-judged competition that showcases hundreds of exceptional scale creations. Because DSC enjoys the highest integrity, a ‘win’ at DSC is a proud and memorable achievement. 

Hosted by the Cactus Car Modelers Club of Phoenix, DESERT SCALE CLASSIC is unique in offering a contest-within-the-contest!  DSC entrants never compete against members of the host club. Cactus Car Modelers Club members present their creations in a separate display.  DSC entrants join spectators in “Judging the Judges” by voting for their favorite host club models.

Now in the face of a National Health Emergency, DSC is on a virtual platform again for 2021. It's a different approach, but DSC17 is now an On-line Show, and we look forward to a great ON-LINE event and being able to get back to meeting face to face at DSC18.
