Last weekend I attended Wonderfest, a sci-fi and figure show in Louisville, KY. It’s been around for a while, next year is their 30th anniversary, but I’ve never been able to make it before. It’s an impressive show. Photos have been added to the gallery website HERE.
This month’s newsletter has also been added to the Newsletter page.

Friday May 12th, 2017, saw a very well attended meeting of NJIPMS at our usual Nights of Columbus location. There was no set theme for the evening, so an eclectic mix of ships, aircraft, sci-fi, figures, and lots of in-progress builds, filled the tables.
The next meeting is set for June 9th, same time and place. The theme will be “The Pacific: 1942”, so dig out your best and bring it along.
MosquitoCon 26 contest results have been posted to the MosquitoCon 26 Contest Results page. Photos are being processed and will be posted as soon as we get them.
