MosquitoCon Photos Posted

Best Ship, Best of Show

Norm Kennedy Award for Judges Best in Show:

We’re still working out how to best bring large amounts of photos to the new website.  In the meantime, the IPMS USA website has posted all of our photos from the April 6th show.

Photos can be viewed here:

We will have the listing of winners in each category along with photos of each posted within the coming days.

April 2013 Meeting

The April 12th meeting had a high turn-out.  Dinner was served, ribs and fried chicken.  The tone was low-key, however, and the contest an open one, as everyone recovered from, and recounted MosquitoCon experiences.  Actual numbers of attendees, kits, etc., will be discussed at the May meeting, but suffice it to say both are well into the hundreds as is the norm for MCon.

We’re still working to process all of the photos, and should have the contest winners posted, and all photos ready within a week or two.  Until then, here’s what was on the table at last week’s meeting.

MosquitoCon 22 “Best of” Winners

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

MosquitoCon 22 is now behind us.  Thank you to EVERYONE who came out and supported the show, and made it one of the biggest and best we’ve ever had.  The entries were both numerous and fantastic, making the judges’ decisions difficult.  The “Best Of” winners are listed below, along with photos of those entries above.  More show photos will follow as soon as they are all processed; it takes many hours to go through more than 400 photos and associate them with the correct entrant names.  We’re working on it, but until then, here are the MosquitoCon 22 “Best Of” Winners:

Best Tailhook Award:
SB2C4 Helldiver by  Mike Witkowski

Best Civilian Subject:
1975 Mack MP404X by Ralph Ratcliffe
