Cleveland IPMS Show 11-4-18
After attending the Port Clinton (Toledo) IPMS show a few months ago I checked the schedule for the next nearest show. The Cleveland show was slated to be one of the bigger shows in Ohio so I've been looking forward to it. It did not disappoint. In hindsight I should have shot more pictures of some of the armor and fantasy tables but I had tunnel vision for the airplanes. I was eves dropping on some of the judges and they were deciding first place by whether or not the control surfaces should have been modeled to show a "bank" in flight. That sums up the quality of the builds. It showed me that I need to really ramp up what I am doing to get to that level. There were a couple Corsairs and 109s that I would have loved to put in my display cabinet. The vendor tables were packed with models and the prices were really reasonable. I have already removed a couple out of my Ebay watch list 🙂 . I won't ramble on here, the pictures speak for themselves. Today was Tamiya day for me...I swore I wouldn't build Mustangs, but I couldn't pass up Bob Hoover decals and another B for a project I'm cooking up.
