I have received and posted all MosquitoCon 25 photos. Head over to our photo gallery site, linked below, for all of the photos from the event.
One week later and most of the photos and results have been processed, and now posted. We’re still missing a few photos, waiting on those to come in from a few people, but the majority of them have been uploaded, and the others will be added as soon as we get them in hand.
All of this information has been added to the MosquitoCon 25 page as well, but quick links below. Also, the Best Of Winners post I made last week has been updated with photos of a few of the Best Ofs.

Thanks to everyone that came out yesterday. We’re still going through the numbers to get specifics, but we had a huge day as far as walk-in visits and models on the table. Some fantastic work was on display, not the least of which was Dan Kaplan’s 1/700 IJN Shimakaze, which took best in its class, Best Ship, and Best in Show.
We’ll have a list of the rest of the winners and tons of photos to post once the club’s membership gets a little rest and are able to pull the data together. Until then, please check out the Facebook page for information on the very successful Silver Anniversary show.
Everything is ready for the big show on Saturday morning. Club members, please be there at 7am to help set up. As usual, coffee and bagels will be supplied.
For show visitors, be sure to check the MosquitoCon 25 page for any last minute information, a list of who’ll be in the dealer’s room, and who’s supplied items for the raffle. The dealer’s room is sold out, so bring some spending money!
Contest Entry forms are also online, fill them out before hand and avoid waiting in the registration lines.
We’ll see you all on Saturday morning for the Silver Anniversary of MosquitoCon!
Tonight there have been more updates to the site, including a list of sponsors of the show, added to the main MosquitoCon 25 page.
A list of MosquitoCon 25 Contest Trophy Sponsors has also been added to the website. Check out the Trophy Sponsorships MosquitoCon 25 page for the lists of sponsored categories, and those categories still available for purchase.
Because you can never plan too far in advance, the basic MosquitoCon 25 page has been added to the website. For the show’s silver anniversary, the theme is, of course, Silver. Silver wings, silver cars, airships, spaceships, robots, and anything else you can legitimately make with a metallic gleam.
