March 2018 Meeting

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.
