MosquitoCon 32 Photos Uploaded

Photos from MosquitoCon 32 have been uploaded to the club’s ZenFolio portfolio site. There’s been an obvious delay in posting these, and apologies for numerous technical difficulties in processing the photos and getting them uploaded. There are more photos to come, but the links below take to you the majority of them.



World Model Expo 2022

World Model Expo 2022 was held in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in early July. The local club that puts on the annual Scale Model Challenge show ran the event, and did an amazing job. Photos taken at the show by NJIPMS member Devin Poore can be seen on NJIPMS’s Zenfolio gallery hosting site HERE.

MosquitoCon 29 UPDATE

This has been added to the main MosquitoCon 29 page as well:


As of now, we are on track to hold MosquitoCon 29 on Saturday July 31, 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be following state and venue guidelines the day of the show.

A few things to note (everything is subject to change):
– Wearing of masks inside the venue is mandatory – NO EXCEPTIONS.
– Each entrant may enter UP TO 12 models in total
– Each entrant may enter UP TO 3 models per category (12 max – see above).
– Door are scheduled to open at 9am for CONTEST ENTRANTS ONLY.
– Doors will open at 10am for non-entrants. This means no access to the contest OR vendor rooms for non-entrants until 10am. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We are hoping that, as restrictions ease and things open up, we will be able to a pretty much “normal” show, but keep checking back here, or on our Facebook page, for updates, as everything is subject to change.
Look forward to seeing everyone again!

WonderFest 2019

Last weekend I attended the annual WonderFest sci-fi model show, in Louisville, KY. For those that have attended JerseyFest here during the fall, this is a somewhat similar show, yet much larger, and the break-down between ships/hardware and figures is about an even split (whereas the JerseyFest show is predominately figures). WonderFest set a record this year, it’s 30th, with over 800 models entered in the contest. The quality of work is amazing, and I was quite stunned to take away a bronze award for my USS Sentinel kit build. This year I also took part in a group build display, with the theme of Star Wars Concept Models. Each of us picked a Joe Johnston concept drawing and built a model based on it. My B-Wing wasn’t finished, but that didn’t stop me from taking it to the show as an in-progress.

The show’s dealer’s room is quite impressive as well, with at least 125 individual dealers, according to the show’s flyers, as well as personalities taking photos and signing autographs. The two conference rooms taken up by the dealers is easily 1.5 or 2 times the size of our usual MosquitoCon.

If anyone’s looking for an excuse to visit Louisville the weekend after Memorial Day, I highly recommend WonderFest. They have the date set for May 30-31st, 2020, with more information on their website:

I took photos, per my usual of not trying to get everything, just the stuff that really catches my eye, all of which have been posted HERE.
