25th Anniversity IPMS Roscoe Turner Indianapolis Show
Took the opportunity to travel up the road a bit to attend the 25th Annual Roscoe Turner model show on the SE side of Indianapolis, Indiana. They had a total of 570 entries covering all categories. Couldn’t photograph them all but here are a few that caught my eye. The Phantom is eye candy for those fanatics, and you know who you are. The B-17 is the HK1/32 kit and boy is it big, as well as the Mosquito weighing in at 1/32 scale. Some really nice auto’s, race cars and trucks were well represented and lots of figures and sci-fi.
The garage diorama was outstanding with lots of small detail. It even had empty plastic quart bottles of motor oil thrown in a waste can. All in all a good time and an opportunity to socialize with a fellow iModeler, Jeff Bailey. Jeff’s on your left in the pic. Bernie, wish you could have made it because the pork tenderloin sandwiches we had for lunch were outstanding. Jeff however, had biscuits with sausage gravy, stated it took him back to his old Army days. Shameless plug, my 1/48 Academy P-38F took a third place. Life is good, happy modeling to all on iModeler. Now go build something, John Ferdico how’s that P-400 coming along?
