This past weekend,June 2nd and 3rd, saw Wonderfest 2018 in Louisville, KY. A Sci-Fi and Fantasy model show, lots of spaceships, figures and dioramas were on the table. Photos taken by Devin Poore have been posted to the club’s gallery website HERE.

MosquitoCon 27 is now behind us. The initial counts place it in the top 3 attended events of the show’s history. Initial numbers are:
- 505 models entered
- 140 entrants
- 400+ walk-in attendees
Best of Show went to Joe Simon’s amazing Japanese cruiser Yahagi. More photos of this, the other winners, and of all the models entered to follow, as soon as we can get them processed and sorted.
We have a forecast of possible snow on Saturday morning. There’s little to no expected accumulation, though, and most of it should be gone by noon. The show will go on as scheduled.
March 9th, 2018, saw the monthly meeting of NJIPMS. The theme of the evening was Nostalgia Night, with lots of old bottles of paint, printed kit catalogs that listed ridiculously low priced kits, and several boxed kits of the vintage nature.
The contest table had a decent turnout as well, with photos below.
More information on trophy sponsors, attending vendors, raffle donations, and everything else have been added to the MosquitoCon 27 page. More will be added as it comes in.
