Now I know what you are thinking: Are there model aircraft at a model car show? Absolutely! And I will get to that below, because there were some great ones! The 6th Annual Ottawa Scale Auto Contest was held on a very rainy Sunday on October 27, 2019. Since its inception in 2014, it has been […]Read More The 2019 Ottawa Scale Auto Contest Report
Held on September 28, 2019 at the unique and wonderful Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, Ontario, CapCon is the bi-annual scale model show and contest hosted by IPMS Ottawa. It’s Been Ten Years?!?!?

Yes, Dayton is a bit of a hike for me, but given the fact that the USAF Museum is was on my bucket list, I had some annual […]Read More 2019 WrightCon Show

I got back into the hobby sometime in 2007 with a 1/48 Tamiya F4U-1A and my inspiration came from the internet […]Read More 2018 IPMS Nationals Show Report (Phoenix AZ)
IPMS Rochester hosted its annual show on September 23, 2018. It was held at the Webster Recreation Center in Webster NY (about a 10 minute drive East from Rochester). Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control (a freak TORNADO) my trip was delayed. That meant missing a visit to the local hobby shop in Webster. However I met […]Read More IPMS Rochester – ROCON 37 Show Report (2018)
